Treasurer's report included results of Hamfest. City did pay the
HAMFEST - good turnout, would have been even better with more
vendors. The silent auction worked out well. There was
insufficient room at the restaurant on Friday night for all the hams who
wished to participate, hopefully we'll have more room next year.
Discussed charging $10 for indoor vendors and $5 for tailgate or outside
vendors next year. Radcom said they need $10K in sales to be
here. Popular programs included ARRL, RACES, ARES, MARS, APRS.
We have 71 photos of the event on CD.
MARS - Glenn Mauger WB5OAF passed around information on 39th squadron's
access for MARS to utilize the armory.
REPEATER - Dave Johnson KB5YIW reported no apparent hail damage. He
will provide the programming cables to Glenn WB5OAF.
ARES - Glenn Mauger WB5OAF stated that the damage to the trailer should be
covered by County insurance and there may be over $2K available to fix
it. The LEPC expects a good turnout at their next meeting. Glenn
has developed a CD for use by select participating agencies.
Christmas Dinner - Jon Spargo KC5NTW will make all the arrangements.
Voted to have it at Rancher's Steak House so we could have a separate room.
