CHAPTER 6 QCWA MEETING

QST QST !! All amateur radio operators and QCWA members plus whoever you would like to bring we will finally be having an official business meeting. July 10th Saturday at 3:00 pm ( NOTE: 3:00 pm) at

               Jabby Joe’s

As usual, solicitations are made for prepared presentations with a bribe of a free lunch. Volunteers please contact President Jack Buzon, KA3HPM, ahead of time for agenda sequencing.  So far, our meeting agenda will include the reunion of Covid-19 parolees, breaking of bread, and our usual swapping of stories.  Good news during these troubling times comes with the suspension of our annual five dollar dues for 2021.  Here’s looking forward to seeing the membership again after the year and a half hiatus.

 

Was the 3:00 PM time change mentioned?
