Old Business:

Hamfest: ARRL has approved, the VE session has been set up, and the Fire Academy is ready.  Mailing: per Glenn Mauger, Dave Finley (not present) is finalizing the flyer.  Meetings: MARS and ARES, 11:00 to 12:30. No Skywarn this year.  Dinner the evening before: Backyard BBQ proposed, generally agreeable.  Silent auction: we can still do one though it be small.  Door prizes: Ryan Snyder and Dave Finley to handle arrangements; a cap of $1500 expenditures was proposed, motion passed.

Digression for Announcements of upcoming events: The weekend of September 17-18 is “Emergency Power Weekend”.  The SET will be in October.  The Deming Tailgate session (not a full hamfest, it appears) is to be held at the Mimbres Valley Learning Center.

Old business (continued)

Trailer: Needs a trickle charger; the battery was good but has gone dead.  Trailer work sessions proposed for Saturdays after the 8-9 AM informal meetings at McDonald’s.  Ed Wood reported that Dave Romero is willing to bring the welder over to attach pipes for antenna mounting.

New business.
