December News and Notes

With the new year fast approaching don’t forget all club memberships need to be renewed after January first. They are still $15 per person or just over a dollar a month (WOW, that’s CHEAP!). We also need any nominations for officers for next year, especially for Secretary and Treasurer.

There has been a change of plans for the Christmas Party. Our first choice is unavailable that night so we will be having our party at the Flaming Grill on W. Patrick St. near the Kmart. The party will be held on Monday December 21 at 1830. I hope to see everyone there.

We will be meeting in the parking lot behind the house at the front of the park. The primary transmitters are 145.600 and 146.600. These should be relatively easy to find. The secondary and harder to locate fox will be on 147.400. Hope to see you there.

Foxhunt Update

We have made a change of venue for the foxhunt this weekend. We will be moving to the Heritage Farm Park on Devilbiss Rd. in Walkersville instead of Fountain Rock Park. This is a much larger park and will help us have a much better hunt. The event is open to any and all hams. Meet in the parking lot Saturday September 12 at 13:00. One fox will use 145.600 and the other will use 146.600. Hope to see you there.
