Presidents Message April 17, 2018

17 Apr 2018 9:32 AM | Stephane Raimbault (Administrator)

The CARA Spring Flea Market has come and gone for another year and wow, what a wonderful event thanks to the sponsors, vendors, participants and of course those that volunteered to help organize and setup the event.  Thank you to all and it could not have been a great success with all the pieces that we had, especially those that volunteered; Dave VE6DED, Doug VE6CID, Jim VE6JF, Don VE3DD, Frank VE6ZQ; and many others!

We had approximately 250 participants with over 40 vendor tables and some very lucky Hams who won the raffle and 50/50 door prizes.  Anis VA6TUN won the Yaesu FTM-400XDR and Akin VA6ATA took home the FTM-3200R.  Another lucky winner is Neil Brown who won the 50/50.  Congratulations to all 3 of you and thanks once again for our sponsor Radioworld Central for working with the club on such great raffle prizes!

As we prepare to support the upcoming public service events such as the Rocky Mountain Rally and the Banff-Jasper Relay I encourage all members to keep a close eye on our changing website for information regarding those events for some volunteering opportunities.

We would also like to inform club members that with the recent completion of the 2018 Casino we are now accepting project proposals for the upcoming casino funds we are expecting in June.  We are requesting that project proposals be submitted by June 1st, 2018 for consideration by the executive.  Projects will be considered as per the revised policy manual (version 2018.2 or later).  Please reach out to the executive if you have any questions regarding the project proposal process.

Thank you
