Presidential Ponderings – June 18th 2021.

Several things following our committee meeting last evening.

1. As I forecast in my last report, we are planning our AGM to coincide with our next Techincal Tuesday meeting, ie, 20 July. At our meeting last night your committee all indicated they are happy to remain, however if anyone has a desire to step up and join the committee please contact our Secretary, David or myself to discuss.

2. A large amount of ham radio equipment has been donated to us (David VK6FAAZ will provide further details) and it is our intention to offer this equipment to members at our AGM prior to selling whatever remains at the NCRG swapmeet (29/8).

3. Club membership fees - our treasurer (Bruce VK6CX) has reminded us that membership fees are now due - thank you to those who have already paid, and to those who haven’t yet paid, we would appreciate you doing so.

4. VK6 News - Steve VK6SJ has been doing a great job compiling the VK6 AR news however is now unable to do so. I understand it is not an especially onerous task, however would probably suit someone who is retired, so if anyone is interested in taking on this important role on behalf of VK6 please contact David (VK6FAAZ) or myself.

5. There are a number of activities coming up about which we will provide further details however please note these dates in your diaries:

• 15-29/6 Terry VK6TTF portable - Coolgardie 

• 26/6 (1900 - 2100) - PARG Slow CW contest 

• 17/7 - PARG Field Day (1400 - 1600) 

• 20/7 - PARG AGM (1900) 

• 7/8 - PARG Birthday Bash
