We have a New Executive for 2017

So Monday, January 9th was a great meeting with a good crowd of people attending and then hung around for the AGM right after.  I want to welcome Perry VE6NX to our club and we also had Gary VE6CV and Brad VE6BVE come and join us.  It was great to see you all.


The AGM brought a new and somewhat younger crowd into some executive positions.  Ron VE6PAP is our new president and he brings with him enthusiasm and experience.  Our new vice president is Geoff Petersen who is a student studying his Basic right now with Tom VE6ARG.  Tom VE6TRM is continuing with the treasurer's position and our new secretary is Makay Murray VE6PWN, another new ham.  Blair VE6AGH is continuing with the repeater committee and Tom VE6ARG is continuing as the communications director.  So it looks like an exciting group of people with lots of ideas to make our club even more exciting.


We want to thank Pietre VE6PVD for the great job he did as the president of the club and look forward to working with him on projects in the future, specifically the annual field day event which we will hold out at Picture Butte.

Meeting Attendance

I was encouraged by the attendance at the last meeting.  It was great to see so many new faces coming out on such a cold night.  This is our club and as such it is important that we all participate. Our club deserves it.  Coming out and spending some time with others that have similar interests is always rewarding.
