A reminder
It's that time of year to renew your membership in the Club. Dues are still so low that you would think it was a sale price, only 25 dollars for a whole year and that includes licensed spouses or spouse, if you only have one and kids under 18. The club graciously accepts checks, cash or you can click on the Donate button above and pay by PayPal.

Annual Board meeting was held December 5th at Clawson's Wheelhouse restaurant with a large attendance of members. Elections were held for two Board Member positions that were vacant for 2019. Three members threw their names in the hat for nomination, Tom Velvin K7TMV, Peg Sorensen KA7UWR and Jay Guettler KI7UPY. It was a close race with one vote separating two candidates. New to the Board next year will be Tom and Peg. The current Board will initiate the January Board meeting and turn over the reins to the new Board at which time Board positions will be determined.
