President’s report 11-22-20

Good evening to everyone on the net. Thanks Chris for taking the net and making the repairs to the repeater.

As many of you know I wasn’t going to be around for the meeting Friday, so I appreciate Steve KI0KY for running the meeting.

I was excited to hear that we had some first timers join, Matt and Lisa and Dick Noble. Unfortunately because of the small turnout there wasn’t an official meeting. We will have a Zoom meeting Dec 18th at 7pm to wrap up this year. Info will be sent out prior.

After taking a poll tonight via the net the holiday party has been cancelled.  

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

MARC members,
Due to unfortunate events, there will NOT be a meeting at the Olathe Community Center tomorrow, Friday, November 20. There will be a ZOOM meeting. The ZOOM meeting will be short, informal.

The most important item is taking a survey about participation at the holiday party. The plan is to give the recreation center a yes or no on Monday morning. As stated in a previous post you may send an email to and state whether or not you will be attending the party. So for we have six no’s and two yes’s.

The final survey will be on the Sunday night net.

Urgent Club meeting & Holiday party feedback needed ASAP


Happy Tuesday! Hope all is well with you and yours.

It seems we have had a few hiccups come up, Dick who was supposed to run the Zoom meeting this Friday won’t be attending due to stomach flu. Hoping you are feeling better soon! Bill says he will try his hand at Zoom. Thanks Bill.

That being said I sent out an email to see who plans to attend Friday’s meeting. If there isn’t enough participation it might be better to cancel.

Please respond back to that email and let me know who plans to attend ASAP so Steve can decide if we should cancel or move forward with the meeting.

Also we need feed back regarding the holiday party. As of now the holiday party has been changed to Saturday Dec 5th at 1pm since rec center is now closed on Sundays.

If you plan to attend please let us know how many plan to attend. (example Kathy + Stan or Frank +1) We have limited space (only 24 allowed, 6 tables of 4 each), however if there isn’t enough interest maybe we should just cancel anyway?

Please send reply immediately to Steve at (also he will be taking a poll on Sunday night net) so we can let Bill Huddles know by Monday.

As mentioned I will be hunting, so won’t have access to email.

Have a great week.

President’s report 10-25-20

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

As many of you may have heard our Holiday party has been changed to Saturday Dec 5th. In light of the change I sent out an email to see if we had enough interest to go forward and I believe we do.

Reminder Nov 7th is the club breakfast in Olathe; followed by impromptu tail gate we are calling “Junk in the Trunk” in the parking lot at the Community Center. The DMR workshop will start approx. 9:30 ish in the community center. Be sure to RSVP so Dick has enough cds to send home with you.

Speaking of email you can receive emails from the club by entering your email address via this link.  An email was sent out with specs for the upcoming DMR workshop.

Due to the change in the holiday party we will reschedule the next “Junk in the Trunk” and Antenna Range testing to sometime in 2021. More info to follow

We will still have Dec 5th breakfast at Starvin Arvin’s for those that want to get together that morning as well.

Check out the club events/calendar page for info on up coming activities.

Have a great week!
