Presidents Message - April 15th

09 May 2019 9:53 PM | Stephane Raimbault (Administrator)

Winter's grip has loosened and spring welcomed us in the past few weeks. I had the opportunity to find the sun with a trip south, but Calgary was also blessed with warmer weather, and I'm sure everyone is starting to think about their antenna projects and making plans for their summer.

Although I missed the General Meeting at the end of March, I understand there was healthy discussion among club members on how to approach the inventory that CARA has amassed over the years that currently are not ear marked for projects. I look forward to the results of the discussion and further improvements to the equipment disposal process.

April marked the month we had the annual CARA Spring Flea Market. It was another successful event with many out of town attending. Our technical sessions (Ham University) were well received and continue to be of interest to attending Amateurs. I have always enjoyed the planning for the flea market, and I am very thankful for all the volunteers who helped prepare for the flea market, and all those who were involved on the day of the event. Prior to the flea market the weather was looking more like winter, but by Saturday the sun came out and temperatures improved. April marked the month we had the annual CARA Spring Flea Market.

On May 24 to 26 the Calgary Sports Car Club organizes the Rocky Mountain Rally to again be held in Inveremere, BC. This is a premier national rally event, which always requires quite a few radio volunteers. Please consider volunteering for this event, as it is always nice to support clubs and organization which also supports us. You can find further information on our Website as registration is now open.

As always I look forward to seeing you all at our upcoming General Meeting on the 4th Tuesday of the month (April, 23rd).
