This Friday’s in person meeting has been changed to zoom meeting

Good evening,
I hope everyone is well and staying healthy.
Due to the recent mandate, we will not be able to hold our meeting in person this Friday. However we’d like to pass our budget, so in an effort to do that we are going to hold this month’s meeting via zoom.  The information is below.
Please note I am new to this program so please bear with me as it might not go as smoothly as it should. Some of the board members did a test run this week and we discovered IPads do not work, so you will have to use a computer with camera and microphone.
We will start the zoom at 6:30 to give people a chance to log in and get it set up on their computer. Once you click the link below you will be asked to download the ap.

Kathy Joslin is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
Topic: Kathy Joslin’s Zoom Meeting
Time: Mar 20, 2020 06:30 PM Mountain Time (US and Canada)

Hope you can make it.

President’s report 3-15-20

Good evening to everyone on the net. Thanks Dick for taking the net.

As many of you know, this Friday is our monthly meeting. In light of the current situation, I would like to take a poll to find out how many will be attending.

March is the month we pass our yearly budget, so we will need a quorum to do so.  According to our Bylaws we will need 10% of the currently membership to make a quorum and pass a budget for our upcoming year.

Since we do not have any reported cases of the coronavirus in Montrose, and that our meetings are less than the 250 threshold, I would like to propose we proceed with our monthly meeting as planned.

However, since the majority of our membership is the “target demographic” I want to get your input.

Also as an alternative to physically attending, we are going to set up a zoom meeting invite so you can participate even if you can’t physically attend. Be sure to sign up http://eepurl.com/gKMxpj to get the zoom meeting info.

When we poll the members tonight, please let me know if you plan to attend Friday’s meeting either in person or via Zoom in addition to anything you may be buying or selling via the swap net.

Tomorrow is our board meeting so if there are any changes I will post them on our website and send out an email.

That’s all I have for now.

Good evening to everyone on the net. Thanks John for taking the net.

Yesterday was our club breakfast in Olathe. We had 15 people, so a pretty good turnout. Since they moved the location of the group, we had fun watching the reactions of our regulars coming in. We sure are creatures of habit!


Afterwards a group of us did some Auxcom training in Delta, and set our calendar for the year.

 

Group consensus is we will continue with the swap net, so we will do that again this month, so next Sunday will be the swap net and you can bring the items to the meeting on the 20th.

 

Richard KE0MVS has snack and Dave Casler KE0OG will bring the program.


That’s all I have for now.

President’s report 2-9-20

Good evening to everyone on the net. Thanks Chris for taking the net.

At the end of last month I sent out email of events for February. It’s an overview of the month’s activities. If you didn’t get it be sure to sign up for club emails. http://eepurl.com/gKMxpj

Next Sunday Feb 16th we are going to try a swap net.  Steve will be net control so maybe he can provide some insight on how that will work.

The board has a meeting prior to our club meetings, so if you’d like us to add anything to the agenda please let one of the board members know.

That’s all I have for now.

Sorry, I wasn’t able to make the net last night, so if this is a repeat I apologize.

We had 20 in attendance at the club meeting Friday. Lew and Royce provided information for Winter Field Day which is Jan 25-26. They will be setting up appox 08:30 am. The event will go from 12 noon Saturday to 12 noon Sunday. Everyone is encouraged to stop by, help set up, get on the radio, enjoy some good food or help tear down. The location is the parking lot at the EOC in Montrose.

Programs: Steve went over emergency net procedures for Sunday night net and I did a quick show and tell regarding the email service provider(mail chimp) the club  is now using to send out emails.

Thank you Royce for bringing the fantastic goodies! We enjoy being your test subjects for you to try out new recipes.
