Barry VK5BW is making progress recovering from the Stroke he had recently, we wish him all the best and hope for a full recovery soon. Barry was allowed to go home last Thursday and he is very pleased, the food in the hospitals was almost in edible.
Our Secretary Glenn VK5GLM is taking over looking after the repeater network, he has a similar technical background to Barry and Barry will be able to school him up on the repeater network.
I have put together the calendar for 2022 after having enough responses to my call for people to put a hand up to do presentations at the general meetings. Thank you if you are one of these people. Presentations usually last about 45 minutes to one hour and can be radio and electronic subjects or general interest topics.
I emailed out a PDF file of the 2022 calendar on Thursday the 24th of March. If you did not get this then I do not have a current email address for you. Please send your email address to email@example.com
The next lunch at the RSL will be on Friday the 22nd of April at 12 noon and the next social gathering at the shack will be on Saturday the 23rd of April at 10.00 AM.
We are going to start all the Saturday Morning shack sessions at 10.00AM in future.
I am hoping we can re start our technical talks at the shack on the fourth Saturdays soon. I have had some interesting topics suggested in response to my call for speakers at General Meetings. One or two of the topics would be more appropriate for a technical session at the shack.
Pat tells me there are five Saturdays in April and this means we can have a fifth Saturday brunch at the shack on that day, the 30th of April. Starting time will be 10.00AM and please book your place with Pat - firstname.lastname@example.org. This could well be the last such event at that venue. We have one promising venue as a replacement for the shack but we are still negotiating for it and other sites.
I noticed at the General Meeting not everyone put their name on the attendance register. This is important, this covers us for our Public Liability Insurance which this year has cost over $400 and is necessary coverage for our use of the venue
Wishing you all a pleasant week, stay safe and away from covid, Phil VK5SRP
