Hopefully we will seeing some of our snow birds before they head out of town as we typically plan to break bread and swap stories. As usual, solicitations are made for presentations with a bribe of a free lunch. Volunteers please contact President Jack Buzon, KA3HPM, ahead of time for agenda sequencing.
Please note that we are meeting on the third Saturday of this month to avoid conflict with other events and the holiday.
