Monthly Newsletter  Supporting the Advancement of Amateur Radio  January 2009

Brian Carter, KCØDWX

I'd like to start off by apologizing for not having a 'real' newsletter for January, and then for it being so late. I hope you everyone out there has had a good holiday season, as well as a good start to the 'New Year.'

There area a couple of things that must be said, even if in an informal newsletter. First, thank you to Victor and his family for hosting our Christmas party this year. Those of us who made it had a great time and enjoyed the quality company we had to share the evening.

Next, I'd like to congratulate the officers for the coming year. The officers for 2009 are Scott Chainey, ACØCY, Vice President; Christine Chainey, KCØYJN, Treasurer; Francis Sable, WØEVJ, Secretary; and myself, Brian Carter, President. Everyone I've worked with in the MAARS club has been a pleasure, and I'd like to thank Dave, KDØAZG for his help with MAARS in the past year, and wish him well with his co-WARN coordination with Mark, KCØQAS.

Our first meeting will be January 9th at 7:30 P.M., and will be a quick get together with ideas and suggestions for the following year. We should think of ideas for getting more members, ideas for meeting topics, and discuss other ideas we may all have for the future. The meetling will be at the Red Cross in Manhattan, 2601 Anderson Avenue.

We will also join for dinner at 5:30 or so at Sirloin Stockade in Manhattan for dinner and conversation.

NEW FROM ARRL - Beginning October 1, 2001, our club will receive $15 for each new member joining the ARRL through our club. This is for new members or those who have not been a member for two or more years. There will be no commission for renewals but we still may submit your renewals, if you wish. Since the club retains the dues, it is necessary for you to write your check to MAARS, and then the treasurer writes a check to ARRL.


Dues will be due by Oct. 31 and are: regular membership $20, full-time student $10, family $30. Please complete the following when renewing your membership, even if you did so last year. Return to the Treasurer, at a meeting or to MAARS, P. O. Box 613, Manhattan, KS 66505-0613. If you are currently receiving both the email and paper copy of the newsletter, please consider just receiving the email copy. It will save the club $5-6.00 per year per copy.
