August Meeting Re-Cap
WOW With 29 members in attendance President Bret (W0VK) started off the meeting with introductions and the pledge. During the report from our EmComm trailer committee 3 huge donations were made to our club.
1st Harry (K0TV) donated 2 brand new DuraMax XP2300 generators. What a way to start the meeting.
2nd A anonymous donation was excepted by the club of a little used Icom 7300 HF radio. The person who made the donation wishes to remain anonymous and all we at SPARK can say is many thanks to you.
3rd Bret (W0VK) made a donation of a brand new antenna tuner for the 7300.
We indeed as a club have been blessed by our members generosity and support, not to mention other things that have been donated (7300) over the past several years including the radio today.
Recaps were given about the POTA event at Knob Noster and the Warrensburg Hamfest. We had 30 members who attended the hamfest, what a tremendous showing by our membership.
Under new business our next POTA event will be held in Windsor at the Rock Island Trail (next to Casey’s) on September 16th. More information on this will be discussed at our September meeting. Last but not least it’s Sparkfest time. October 14th is indeed getting closer. We are in great shape with our table sales again this year. Looks like we will have another great event.
We are extremely excited to announce that we are going to have 2 new ham radio clubs in our area. Marshall and Tri-Lakes in Warsaw. We at SPARK are excited about these new clubs forming, giving ham radio operators in those areas the opportunity to not only fellowship with others but to provide valuable guidance and support to hams in their areas.
Our net regular meeting will be held on Saturday September 9th due to the Labor Day holiday.
