Due to the ongoing trial in Wauseon, and the scheduled remodel of that meeting room, we will need to find a new home for our meetings this year.  For tonight, we will be back at the Wauseon Masonic Lodge at 7:30pm.  See you all then.

The meeting was called to order at 7:35PM by Bryan Patterson (KB8ELG) with 9 members in attendance.
The Finance Report and Minutes from the January meeting were read and approved.
Upcoming Events:
TMRA Hamfest is March 18.  Althought the club will be provided a table, the hamfest comittee is only allowing it to display clib related informaiton and events, meaning no sales.  Bryan Patterson (KB8ELG) will have tables in case anyone wants to bring things to sell.
The "breakfast club" is taking an unofficial club outing to the Dayton Air Force Museum on 2/25.  We currently plan on having breakfast at the Delta 109 at 7am before heading out.  It's a solid 2.5 hour drive, so we might not get back until 8pm.  I don't know how many are going or who is driving, but we may have a small caravan of vehicles.
Hamfest Committee:
The Summer hamfest is registered for at the ARRL site.  The club page also has the latest information:  http://k8bxq.org/hamfest
Good of Amateur Radio:
KB8ELG urged all members to have S.A.M.E. weather radios with the risk of inclement weather especially with odd warming trends like we have this week.
We were also reminded of the new 6m W8HHF repeater on 53.110- with a Net @ 9pm on Mondays (103.5PL)

2018 Event Calendar

Attached is a list of hamfests and club related events for 2018.  We look forward to seeing you for many of these events.

Harold N8HGW passed away Wednesday November 22 2017 where he was living in Bangor Michigan. He got his ham license in 1999. He was also the organizer of a car club in Bangor for many years. He liked motorcycles in his younger years and also liked fishing and boating on Lake Michigan. He was in the US Army. Harold had a heart transplant on 9-11-01.  He was doing fine until his kidneys quit in 2016 but he was making it work. His wife Trena was by his side for anything he needed. He is survied by a brother George Walworth. He had one daughter Karen and her husband Rick and two grandsons, who also live near them. A service will not be held until August of 2018 due to him being a heart transplant patient.
I got word from kb8elg today that something went afoul in the reservation with the American Legion Hall.  They appear to have the facility double booked and we are getting the boot.  There will be time for hurt feelings and resentment later, but for now we are planning on a venue change back to our original location, the Village of Delta Memorial Hall at 401 W Main St, Delta, OH 43515.  The date stays the same.  The timetable may move a bit.  We will need to be super creative with our table layout.
I will start updating everything I can think of online.  Please spread the word to the outlying clubs however you can.
