Introductions. Welcome to new members Neil Poff, David and his 10-year-old son, Thomas.
Discussion of website. Possible reimbursement for “out of pocket” costs to webmaster. Less formal means of expressing appreciation seemed preferred by webmaster, over monetary reimbursement at this time. Back up training or help desired in case of emergency. THANK YOU, WEBMASTER, FOR THE TERRIC JOB YOU ARE DOING.
Discussion of acquiring a van for the club. Various News channels were asked about donating to a Non-Profit. Van could be equipped with radio gear then used as a mobile educational source to youth groups or public; allowing “hands on” radio introduction and experience. Van use could also benefit the NWARON.
Steve Werner; K5SAW, helped with repairs to the Centerton repeater. Discussion about reimbursement for his costs. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMITMENT AND DEDICATION.
Brainstorming of possible fund-raising events. Discussed public fundraising such as Amazon Smile, Affiliate programs, Go Fund Me, etc. Discussed in house sponsored programs such as Tamale Dinners and other HAM community related fundraisers. Ham community fund raising seemed preferred.
