Monthly Newsletter  Supporting the Advancement of Amateur Radio  October 2006

Brian Carter, KCØDWX

Our September club meeting was our annual picnic, and served as a work session for our club project. It seems we have learned a little bit about sand blasting if nothing else from this project.

I'd like to thank all those who attended the picnic and aided a hand with painting, scraping and sandblasting. I am reminded that we still have parts laying around to paint and assemble we need to pick another day do some work.

Once again we are coming near the end of another year. Membership dues are due and should be given to Scott Chainey. Members need to pay their dues by the end of October to be eligible for a club office and/or to vote.

November will be our annual election/or as has been the case the last several years, accepting of officers. Anyone interested in running for an office or in helping in any other way should let myself or Scott know.

While membership is low as is club activity, I hope we can continue to move on and attempt to better the situation.

Our meeting for October will be on Friday the 13th at 7:30 P.M. at the Red Cross in Manhattan. Our eating meeting will be at 5:30 P.M. at Valentino's in Manhattan. I hope we will 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.
