Old Business
Willie W5WIW- Those that didn't come to field day missed a lot of fun
and some good food. I would like to thank Jerry and Mike for the good
food they cooked. Eggs and bacon was sure a good breakfast. Hamburgers
and hot dogs for lunch with Willie's chili for dinner. Longest contact
from our field day was Barcelona, Spain made by KD0HUM. Thanks Dan.
There were approximately 80 contacts, don't have all the sheets yet.
Willie W5WIW - We need help finding speakers. If you can do a program
let us know so we can assign a time and date.

New Business
Elections. Motion made and passed to keep current officers in their
positions
Bill K6VPE suggested change to by laws to have Dues be due at a person's
dat of birth to make it easier to remember. Berry N0OYM reminded the
club that any change in by laws requires 3 readings and a vote by a
quorum.
Bill K6VPE - 147 repeater is back on the air and ready to be used.
Willie W5WIW - would like to see club members go to dinner once a month
and talk radios.

Additional Comments
Watch out for other drivers on the way home. When you are stopping,
always check your rear view mirror to see if someone is too close behind
you. You might want to give yourself a little more room in front of you.
