There are several people looking at locations for “Field Day” with VP Ben Nardi taking the lead. It was  noted that “exposure” of the club activity in a public venue, with easy access is more important than number of contacts, while both are important, exposure to the public is much better for us as it promotes interest.

Also discussions of potential additional activities will I am sure will happen.

We look forward to seeing as many of our current members there, as this should prove to be an interesting meeting, and concerns the FARC moving forward.

More details to follow.

At the monthly meeting in March, the vacant Vice President slot was filled. 2013 officers are listed on the “About” page with some history of the club.  Numerous items were discussed after the business meeting was concluded in an open discussion of the direction of the club for the future.

Upcoming events, locations for Field Day 2013, VEC activity, and other items of interest such as training, and some administrative focus for EMComms consolidation in Frederick County. If you have ideas, now is the time to let them fly.
