Elections: Looks like we still have the same officers as last year.
Thanks for keeping us and we will try to do a better job.
Bill K6VPE suggested change to by laws to have dues collected at a
persons's date of birth to make it easier to remember. Berry N0OYM
reminded the club that any change in the bylaws require 3 readings and a
vote by a quorum. It was decided to keep the dues payment schedule as
is.
Bill K6VPE: 147 repeater is on the air

Willie W5WIW - would like to see club members go to dinner once a month
