Monthly Newsletter Supporting the Advancement of Amateur Radio October 2004

Brian Carter, KCØDWX

The September meeting of MAARS was the annual picnic, which was held at the Oregon Trail nature park near Belvue. We grilled food and brought dishes to share. Thanks to all who showed up.

I will be unable to attend the October meeting on the 9th. Items that should be discussed are formation of a committee to gather information on a new repeater. A new repeater will take care of one or two problems with the current repeater as well as possibly leaving the current repeater as a backup.

The second item that should be taken care of is a nominating committee. November will be time for election of officers and a committee should make appointments for the offices. Please help the officers at the meeting by volunteering. Don't forget it is time to renew your membership.

It was last discussed that dinner would be held at the Village Inn again this month as well so those who can attend should plan on meeting at the Village Inn in Manhattan at 5:30. As usual the meeting will be held at 7:30 P.M. at the Manhattan Red Cross at 2601 Anderson Ave.

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.
