November President’s Newsletter and Meeting Announcement
Hard to believe it’s already November. We have the dark-cold nights with snow soon to follow. Perfect antenna weather!
It seems like just yesterday we were at the K8MIS special event station. Now we are preparing for Thanksgiving coming up around the corner.
Several Ideas were discussed at the GL HamCon about potential improvements for clubs. We are already doing many, however, two of the areas mentioned were to focus whole-club meetings on interesting subjects, not business, and improving the communication to the membership with publication of annual club schedules.
At the next meeting, we will present a draft list of topics, presentations and activities for 2018.
For example, the events committee has discussed the following draft Radio Activities:
|Activity Start Date||Radio Activities (Events Committee)|
|1/27/18||Winter Field Day|
|4/21/18||Michigan QSO Party|
Calling all Presenters
Have something to present to the club in 2018? We have openings during our 2018 meetings for presentations or programs. It does not need to be a written presentation, it can be a show-and-tell, general discussion, or a group activity.
