Good evening to everyone on the net. Thanks Steve for taking the net.
Yesterday was Imogene pass run. Our club did an excellent job and provided communications for over 946 runners that actually ran in the race. (They had 1236 sign up.) Communications is important for incidents such as the lady who probably ended up with a broken wrist from the tunnel, so thank you all who participated.
In an effort to get more volunteers, we had a couple new people participants this year and it would be great to get some feedback regarding their experience.
Tomorrow is the board meeting, we will go ahead and have it so everyone is on the same page.
Reminder I won’t be at the club meeting on the 17th and there will not be a Zoom option for the meeting.
Have a great week!
This is from Chris our VP who is on vacation. It’s a forward from another club.

Good evening to everyone on the net. Thanks Stan for taking the net.
I want to Thank Dave for getting our website back up! I was able to check messages and sent a couple comments to Steve for possible VE testers.
This weekend is Colorado QSO if you want to participate with the club reach out to Royce or Bill. I believe they said they will be in McClure pass.
Saturday will also be the club breakfast if you plan to attend please sound off, the restaurant always appreciates a head count.
This month is very busy, look for the Sept Happening email that will go out later tonight or tomorrow.
I did get an email from Chris he is having a great time in Montana. I sent him a reply so hopefully he knows he will be running the Sept meeting.
Again I want to thank everyone that stepped up and are helping out with Imogene run on the 11th.
Good evening to everyone on the net. Thanks John for taking the net.
Friday was the club picnic. We had a great turn out with 24 in attendance. I received badges, so handed those out. Since it was a picnic we got a chance to visit and catch up. We had a few XYLs join us as well. We did have to conduct a little business. We finalized Imogene run stations. Thanks to everyone that volunteered.
I will not be at the Sept meeting so Chris or Lew will run it. We will not have ZOOM access as I do not have anyone that wants to step up to run it.
Good evening to everyone on the net. Thanks Bill for taking the net.
Yesterday was “Hamfest” in Grand Junction if you went please give a report.
Friday is our club picnic it will be at the Olathe Community Center starting at 6pm. Bring something to eat and we will have time to chat and visit with fellow hams. XLY’s and guests are welcome. We will conduct a tiny bit of business since we have to finalize Imogene.
Speaking of Imogene I am looking for someone to step up and be the run organizer. Since the club has been doing this for many years it pretty much runs on auto pilot, so you would be the club liaison to the race organizer. If you are interested please reach out to me for more information.
The website isn’t working, so I wasn’t able to post last week’s president report and I haven’t heard back from Dave as to when it might be back up.
I did send out an email at Steve’s request asking people to be on emergency power for tonight’s net and for those attending the picnic to bring a HT for a quick 5 minute drill.
Lastly for those that ordered badges they are in.
Good evening to everyone on the net. Thanks Royce for taking the net.
Yesterday was our club breakfast we had 7 in attendance. Including a guest Craig (didn’t’ get his call sign) and a new member Loel KJ6TGE.
Hopefully we can get a report from the group at Silverton Ultra Dirty.
Afterward breakfast a group of 8 met at EOC for Auxcom. Hoping Steve will give a report.
Our club meeting will be a picnic on Aug 20th. Bring your own dinner and enjoy time to chat with fellow hams.
Have a great week!
