A new Net Control for Friday

The Club needs a new Net Control Operator for Friday Nights.

I regret that I will have to give up this part of my Hobby, I have
had a lot of fun with it, but the time is just not there right now.

I hope someone will step up and take this opportunity to get to
know some good Hams.

I will call the net the rest of this Month, my last day will be 8/30

Great Meeting

We had a good meeting, and if you missed it here are the high spots.

We talked about the upcoming Field Day on June 22 and 23. The location will be in Greer, at the South Suber road Soccer fields. It looks like it will be a great location with a lot of trees and light posts for hanging antennas.  It has real rest rooms that will be open and one shelter.

So let’s start getting ready to have some fun and possibly score high. We will have a supper on Saturday at 5 pm with hamburgers and hot dogs. The club will supply the meat and we ask that you bring a side dish – whatever you like with your cook out. If you would drop an email to  let us know how many people you will bring. This is important to be sure we have enough to eat.  Plan to attend.

We also accepted two new members and got two new applications for the next meeting. I would like to see us grow at this rate – 2 per meeting “WOW”

We will Grow Again !!!!

One more thing: I’m looking for a Hamfest Chairman for 2014… I have a person that has shown interest but haven’t talked to him about it since the Hamfest.
