Monthly Newsletter Supporting the Advancement of Amateur Radio January 2004

Brian Carter, KCØDWX

It's time for us to start another year with MAARS. We will be continuing this year with the same officers we had last year and I look forward to working together.

We finished the year off with another wonderful Christmas party hosted by Fred and Nadine Stueve. We all appreciate their hospitality and have a wonderful time there every year.

The first meeting of the year will be January 9th at 7:30 P.M. at the Red Cross building, 2601 Anderson Ave. We will get people signed up for committees and get some general discussion as to what we want to do over the next year. If you are unable to make the meeting but have some ideas or want to get your name down for a committee then let me know.

As usual anyone with an interest in Amateur Radio is welcome to attend our meeting, as well as join us at the Sirloin Stockade for dinner and conversation at around 5:30 P.M. We hope to see you there

The Maars meeting for Nov. 14, 2003 was called by president Brian, KCØDWX, at 7:30 P.M. The first item was the annual election of Maars officers. Since there were no candidates submitted or declared for the offices, and since the present officers indicated a willingness to continue in their present office, it was decided by oral vote to retain them.

Present at the meeting was Steve Stockham, a representative of the BSA merit badge conference, who discussed the possibility of the Maars participating in the BSA radio merit badge program. No final decision was made at this meeting.

Next was discussed some details of doing a special event station operation. The first week of June was decided to be an optimum time to hold this event.

The schedule for the MAARS Christmas party was announced for Sat., Dec. 13 at the Fred and Nadine Stueve residence to start at 6:00 P.M.

A total of 16 persons attended the meeting.

A total of 23 persons attended the Christmas party on Dec.13 at the Stueve residence.

It is with regret that we announce the passing of a prominent local, long time Amateur Roger Medlin, WØHLU, on Jan. 1, 2004. As one MAARS member commented, "He was a ham's ham."
