Presidents Message June 17, 2018

17 Jun 2018 8:42 PM | Stephane Raimbault (Administrator)

I can’t believe it is already June and the executive elections are upon us.  I have had a wonderful time seeing the club from a new perspective over the last few months.

I was at first hesitant putting my name forward as I have never been involved at this level in an organization such as this one.  Being that I was filling a position that was recently vacated, I saw this as a trial run to see how things went leading up to the elections… so after 7 months, my interest in both the hobby and the club have only grown, and I look forward to leaving my name stand at the upcoming election for a full 2 year term if the membership so desires it.

I have been continually impressed with all the various activities that the Club and its members partake in, which has kept things quite busy.  Thank you to all the volunteers which make things like the Flea Market, Field Day, Casino fundraiser, Cookie Race, Cochrane winter rally, Rocky Mountain rally, Banff-Jasper relay, the various general meetings and other special interest group meeting topics, the Repeater Group which keeps the repeaters functioning, the DX Group, which maintains the wonderful station at the Calgary Sports Car Club for members to use, and all the various public service events that our club members partake in beyond the ones directly supported by the Club.

The next general meeting, which takes place on Tuesday, June 26th at the Calgary Sports Car Club, is an important one for several reasons.  This meeting is where the election will take place to renew and welcome new members to the executive, which will guide the club over the next 2 years.  It will also signify a milestone for the Club where we are returning our general meetings to the Calgary Sports Car Club after the concerns regarding the mold has been addressed, and we look forward to maintaining this environment moving forward to ensure a safe and enjoyable space to welcome members.

We will be hosting a ‘mobile radio check out’ prior to the meeting, so come by early (6:30pm) for checking out your mobile setup.

I look forward to seeing all of you at the final general meeting of this season before we break for the summer months of July and August.
