Old Business

New Business:

  1. Penny would like to invite one of the local candidates to speak at one of our meetings. It was felt that if we did this for one then we could not refuse others candidates and it might become too much. By a vote the request was denied with one nay registered by Vern. 
  2. Penny is teaching this summer at the Youth Building behind Spin City. She would like to purchase a white board and wondered if SARA might donate $100. David Hunter (KF5AVI) said he might be able to get an old chalk board in good condition from Tech. 
  3. Bill Brundage (NM5WB) announced that the Chile Harvest Triathlon will be held Friday, Aug. 6 at 6:00 PM for the youth and Saturday, Aug.7 at 7:00 AM for the adults. He asked for two volunteers for Friday (5:30 - 7:00 PM) and eight volunteers for Saturday. [volunteers for Sat.: Prescott, Dave Johnson, Vern, Doug, Bear and Dave Finley] 
  4. Kalman Oravecz (AJ5B) called for a round of applause for David Johnson who has been nominated for Emeritus status at New Mexico Tech [The Regents meet on Friday, July 16]. The members responded with much good natured enthusiasm.

Next meeting: 7:30 PM Wednesday, August 11
