It’s meeting week. The March meeting of the Alliance ARC comes up on Wednesday.
First of all, our pre-meeting begins at 5:45 PM. We are currently meeting at the Aultman Alliance Community Hospital Cafeteria. Good food, good conversation.
Then, in the Cafeteria Conference room, our monthly meeting begins at 7:30 PM. This month’s speaker is Mark Locke, CEO of the Alliance Area Chamber of Commerce. He will be speaking near the beginning of the meeting.
Later, Ron KE8HCY will be presenting the PowerPoint presentation that he’s been working on.
We are still looking for someone to volunteer as Vice President. If you are interested, please plan to attend.
So, that’s about it. Hope to see you there.
This is just a reminder that beginning with tomorrow night, the new frequency for the 10 m net will be 28.420.
Hope you can make it.

Saturday is March 2nd, and you know what that means! Good food, & good company at the monthly AARC breakfast. This month, we’ll be at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery (20040 Harrisburg-westville Rd). Perkins is located just East of Alliance on Route 62 at Johnson Road. The time is still the same; 8:30 AM Perkins is right across the road from Cope Farm Equipment (John Deere). When you arrive, just tell the greeter you’re with the Radio Club and they will direct you the meeting room. All are welcome; bring someone with you who is interested in Amateur Radio. Spouses & significant others are always welcome.

Good afternoon everyone, Our January 9th meeting was full of interesting bits of information and activity. We are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel on our legal matters thanks to John Myers KD8MQ. We will be voting on two(2) items of importance during new business segment of our February 13, 2019 meeting. The first will be; “Conflict of Interest”, the second will be “By-Law Amendment” These are part of the legal work that has been taking place.
The revised AARC Tri-Fold club information pamphlets are here and were distributed to club members in attendance, they will be available at all future club activities along with our new business cards. We purchased dual purpose plastic pamphlet and business card holders and they will soon arrive and be distributed to various locations in the city and surrounding areas of Alliance. Club Secretary Dave Moreno KE8JLI spent countless hours on both the new club business cards and the revised pamphlet and we owe him a big thank you for all the hours he spent on these two items, thanks Dave.
Winter Field Day is January 26-27,and it will be held at Sebring Camp where we were at last year and Tony Schillig KD8BBK is the chairperson for the event. Contact Tony KD8BBK if you can help in any way. There will be a chili cook off, and if you can bring a side dish to share that would be greatly appreciated.
The trustees will be conducting an election at the end of our February 13th meeting, and we still need someone to step up and be a candidate for Vice President for the 2019 year.
John Myers KD8MQ has volunteered to be our Program Chairperson and he would appreciate any suggestions for topics and thanks so far to Rick WD8AYC for your suggestions.

At last nights meeting, a proposed bylaw amendment was submitted. Per our bylaws, we could not discuss it at that meeting. It will be discussed & voted upon at our February meeting. You can read the text of it on the club website at w8lky.org.
We will also be voting on a proposed Conflict of interest policy. This can also be read at w8lky.org.
Both items are part of the paperwork for ourapplication to become a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Thanks for your consideration.
