HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE
To all Longmont Amateur Radio Club Members (LARC) we wish you a Happy New Year and hope 2017 brings many new Ham Radio opportunities to all. We look forward to a lot of FUN activities this year and hope to see many new Ham Radio operators getting more involved with the club.
There are many committees and activities the new members can be involved with. Any of the standing committees (Technical, Membership, Planning, Publicity) can use help if you have the interests. There is the Solder Sniffers that you can become involved with to work on your own project, help others with their project, ask technical questions or work with test equipment. There are the service projects we work on (Turkey Trot, various parades and even the Field Day).
We will be working on the meeting presentations so if you have a topic you are interested in, let Ron Schwartz (K2RAS) know. We are also looking for brief (10-15-minute tech talk) technical presentation at the beginning of the meeting which if you have something you would like to share, again, let Ron know.
This is your club so please be involved as much as you can. We still need someone to become the Technical Committee Chairperson. The chairperson is a Board Member and Ron Schwartz is filling in right now. If you have a question on what is involved in the position, contact Ron Schwartz or me. Maybe you can start as a Technical Committee member first. One of the things we need from the Technical Committee is to help the Board establish a technical plan for the next few years.
I want to thank everyone that participated in the 2016 activities, meetings and events. Without your support we could not serve our community with the radio support needed during any emergencies or special events they need us for.
I am looking forward to meeting you all at the LARC meetings on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7:00pm, Clover building of the Boulder County Fairgrounds. Also please feel free to participate in the Monday night nets. Make sure you contact any Board Member to express your interests and questions on Club activities and needs.
Again, Happy New Year and may 2017 bring opportunities to everyone.
Starr Aldrich N0AES – President LARC
