Monthly Newsletter Supporting the Advancement of Amateur Radio May 2004

Brian Carter, KCØDWX

During our April meeting for MAARS the members present decided on our Field Day location. The location chosen was Pott. Co. State Lake No. 1., which is just north of Westmoreland, KS. This area will allow for camping out for anyone interested. Field Day is the 4th full weekend in the month of June. This will be June 26th and 27th.

Hopefully everyone enjoyed the short and hopefully somewhat interesting conversation on GPS and Geocaching that I gave during the April meeting.

Also during our meeting we had some discussion for the MAARS garage sale which will be held at Fred and Donna Rose Hackerott's at 629 Allen Rd. on May 15th. The sale will start at 8:00 A.M. and setup at 7:00 A.M. Any items you want to get rid of and would like to donate to the for sale are welcomed. Pricing and a picnic will take place of our normal monthly meeting on Friday night the 14th at around 6:00 P.M . at the same location. All members are encouraged to come. More details will be elsewhere in the newsletter.

Since we will be having a cookout for the meeting we will not meet for dinner ahead of time for May. Also there has been some discussion as to changing the location of our usual dinner so any input you have would be appreciated. Remember the meeting will be at 629 Allen Rd. and please bring your items to donate on Friday night, as well as any baked goods for the sale. Baked good would best be delivered on Saturday morning and packaged and priced. See you there.

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.
