Phil Storr VK5SRP with the latest news from Adelaide Hills Amateur Radio Society, 26th September 26-09-2021.
My best laid plans for shifting the stuff from the Blackwood community hall to the AHARS shack came unstuck this weekend. The hall was being used on Saturday the 25th and we could not get in to collect our stuff. I did manage to book a time slot for Friday the 24th of September at 2.00PM and another for the ninth of October at 8.00 AM. On Friday we managed to take out most of the stuff, the only thing left behind was the Big double door cabinet and we will be able to collect that Saturday the 9th. BIG thankyou to Barry, Brian, John and Pat for the help at such short notice.
The next lunch at the Blackwood RSL will be on Friday the 8th of October. These lunches are booked for noon at the Blackwood RSL. If you wish to attend the lunch you should book with the RSL on 8278 6253 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. This makes catering easier for them.
All future General Meetings will be at the Blackwood Uniting Church, the Church by the round about. The next general meeting will be on the 21st of October and the starting time will be 7.00 PM for a 7.30 PM. This will be a talk about Codan radio by Det VK5DET.
Other dates to keep in mind:
Advanced notice of Lunches at the RSL, October the 8th and October the 22nd.
Coffee and chat at the shack, October the 9th, starting time 9.00 AM, after we have shifted the cabinet to the Shack.
We will need a few people at the old meeting hall, the Blackwood Community Hall, at 8.00 AM that morning (the 9th of October) to help load the BIG cabinet into a trailer so we can transport it to the Shack. We have a volunteer with a 4X4, a trailer and a sack truck (Eric VK5FDIR) but we will need about six people to man handle the cabinet from that building and into the Shack. If you can help please email me at email@example.com. That way I will know if we have a crew to help.
Brunch at the shack, October the 30th, $5.00 a head. Starting time 10.00AM
Please book your place with Pat by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
November General Meeting 18th of November at the Blackwood Uniting Church – The history of the Rola Company by Graham VK5ZFZ, assisted by others.
This will be our last General Meeting for 2021, general meetings start again on the 17th of February with our AGM. Have you thought about putting your hand up for a position on the AHARS Committee ? I will email a document outlining the duties of those on the committee closer to the date of the AGM
Cheers and 73 for today, stay safe, keep away from covid.
Cheers Phil Storr
