Monthly Newsletter Supporting the Advancement of Amateur Radio November 2004

Brian Carter, KCØDWX

During the October meeting of MAARS, plans were made for the annual Christmas party to be held on December 11th. Members also discussed possibly replacing the repeater and a committee was formed.

Our November 12th meeting will be the annual election of officers. All the current officers have volunteered to run again. We encourage any nominations from the floor, and self-nominations are allowed. In order to vote and/or be nominated, you should be a ham and be a paid member of MAARS.

Another item we will discuss at the meeting is the findings of the committee on repeater replacement. If this is important to you, please be at the meeting. We look forward to hearing what everyone has to say.

As we have done for the last couple of months, we will be having dinner at a different location. This time we will be getting together at Valentino's in Manhattan. Valentino's is located at 3003 Anderson Avenue in Manhattan. This is in the shopping center where Alco is near The Golden Wok. We will meet for dinner at around 5:30 P.M. The Club meeting will begin at 7:30 P.M at the Red Cross building at 2601 Anderson Avenue.

We look forward to seeing you there.

The MAARS meeting for October was on Friday 10/8/2004 at 7:30 at the Red Cross Building. The meeting was conducted by Donna-Rose, NØZKX, Vice-President, in the absence of Brian.

A committee was selected for a study of the repeater, consisting of Mike, NØPVU, Brian, KCØDWX, and Henry, KAØSWM.

A nominating committee was also appointed to provide a list of one or more nominations for each office to be voted on at the annual November meeting. These were: Norm, NØJCC, Mike, NØPVU, and Nadine, KØUHF. Additional candidates may be nominated from the floor at the meeting. Self-nominations are also accepted. The election for contested offices shall be by written ballot. Newly elected officers assume their responsibilities at the December meeting. If no majority vote (more than half) is obtained in the first round of voting, then an immediate run-off election shall be held.

It was decided that the annual Christmas party will be at Fred and Nadine's residence, starting at 6 P.M. Saturday, Dec. 11, 2004. Ham and meatballs are to be included on the dinner menu.

There were 8 people present at the meeting.
