“Ask not what your Club can do for you, Ask what you can do for your Club”
Dear Fellow Members
Due to our current situation, April 4th Tech Saturday Forum has been canceled. April 1st General Membership Meeting has been changed to an On-The-Air meeting on the 147.180 MHz Repeater & EchoLink : W2MMD-R. Tune in on April 1st @ 1930 Hours. Tony WA2FZB will be the Net Control.
I will keep everyone advised on future meetings.
Spring is in the air and I for one couldn't be happier. Although, I must admit that we had a very mild Winter. The mildest that I can remember. Spring is the perfect time of year to get out and check our antennas and feed lines, but put safety first. If you need help ask a friend.
Once again, I would like to congratulate Jeff GARTH, WB2ZBN on being awarded the MILT GOLDMAN AWARD at last months meeting. For those of you who may not know, the award is presented for outstanding service to the GCARC.
March 31st is the official deadline for paying your annual dues. If you haven't paid your dues yet, please do so. You can pay by mail or by PayPal. If you cannot pay by the March 31st deadline, but plan to renew please let Al Arrison, KB2AYU know of your intention..
Field Day 2020 is approaching very quickly and now is the time to start preparing for this very important Club event. Those wishing to be a Band Chairman should contact Al ARRISON, KB2AYU our Field Day 2020 Chairman as soon as possible. I have scheduled a Field Day meeting to be held on the fourth Wednesday of next month, 27 May 2020 at the Clubhouse beginning at 1900 hours. ALL ARE WELCOME.
