New July classes announced
HamCom and Field Day 2014 are now pleasant memories. What do we do for July? Glad you asked. Rusty, AE5AE, will be continuing the Arduino and Raspberry Pi classes he began in May. The next Play and Learn day is scheduled for Saturday, July 12 at Fire Station # 7.
The MARC/MERA discussion will continue at the July General Meeting. Members were presented with the facts of the proposed purchase at the June General Meeting. Members are encouraged to research the proposal. A copy of the MARC/MERA Statement of Understanding is located in the "Members Only" area of this website. You are encouraged to review the document and if you have any additional questions, you will be given the opportunity to ask your questions at the July General Meeting.
The vote on the MARC/MERA proposal will be held at the August General Meeting.
A unique and pleasant challenge ahead for MARC
Recently, David Brandenburg, K5RQ, presented the club with a challenge to increase the funds available to the Walter Lemons Memorial Fund which encourages and supports youth in amateur radio. The Brandenburg Life Foundation will match our fund raising efforts to this end dollar for dollar between May 1 and November 1 up to $1,000. This was introduced to the club via an e-mail blast and a presentation at the last monthly meeting. The Board of Directors formalized our acceptance of Mr. Brandenburg’s challenge at its May meeting.
