Old Business
The DERA trailer is on premises to allow club members to inspect it.
What do you think about our club becoming a 501c-3 club? If the answer
is yes, we need to get started on the paperwork. Motion made to take a
vote as to whether or not we want to move forward with the 501c3
process. Motion passed to do the research about becoming a 501c3
Howard is looking at the WARS bylaws and comparing them to 501c3
language to make sure they are in line. Will get them to Willie to get
to the club for consideration.
Thanks to those who were at the Hamfest to help. There were several that
worked in the cold and did a wonderful job. I hope you had as much fun
as I did.

New Business
Board meeting report
What would you as members think about having a whole family dinner once
a month. We can choose a different place each month. This will give
members and their spouses and children a chance to meet other members
and their families. This will be a place for fun. No club business will
be discussed and no radios will be allowed. It may be a better idea to
go quarterly or every other month. Motion made and passed to meet every
other month starting in March 2015....Willie will look into restaurants,
will be Friday nights before the club meeting.

Upcoming events
NCARC is looking to hold an Extra class in the near future. This will be
done in two sessions 2 Saturdays in a row, dates TBD.
