May Club Meeting
Sunday May 19th at
John Williams QTH 19 Katrina Court, Gol Gol
Starting about 12 noon, BBQ facilities will be available or BYO ready to eat. John has lots of Show & Tell to amaze us with but please bring along your home brew or new techo items. The monthly BBQ/get-together is a great place to see what is new and to ask technical questions or seek advice.
Thank you to Noel and Jill for hosting the April Meeting at Fergus Park, pity about the weather but all enjoyed the day. Noel has the most amazing shack [not really a shack?] and also showed us many of the home brew projects he has completed including an “E” Class transmitter for which he won the home brew prize at the Central Victoria Radiofest at Kyneton in February. Congratulations Noel.
AGM – our AGM will be held in July at the Workers, formal notice will be sent out soon but make a note of this date in your diary. Also start thinking of nominations for the Club Awards. Only financial members are eligible to vote but please make your vote count. Think about who you will nominate for the VK3ATN Technical Merit Award – this is awarded to the member who has shown technical excellence by sharing home brew projects, making technical presentations or show and tell.
The second award, also voted on by financial members, is the Max Folie Achievement Award. This award is not a technical award, but an award for overall club achievement. It is designed to encourage involvement in club activity -- that is what Max Folie VK3GZ would want. Also think about YOUR role in the Club – all Committee positions will be declared vacant – what role would you like to take for 2013-14??
Future meetings will be held at the following venues:
June 16th – Ray Smith’s castle – Eighth Street - BBQ facilities available
July 21st AGM at the Mildura Working Man’s Club. Lunch at 12.00, AGM commences at 1.30pm.
Congratulations to Garry & Sue Briant on the arrival of their new grand-daughter Fotini-Grace and
to her parents Hayley and Harry. Best wishes to all. Maybe we should have “Children & Grand-children’s” day at the Radio Club and see if we can seek new members!! Time flies – met up with Les Jordan recently and his son Nathan is almost ready to go for an “F” licence – seems only yesterday he was a little boy!
At the AGM we will be seeking ideas for future Club activities – but feel free to talk to any of the Committee members with ideas you may have and we will include them in the program selection for the 2013-14 year.
Hope to see you Sunday …….
