President's Corner

September 2017

September is here. Where did the summer go? I have been slowly making the new Jeep radio-ready. I've been installing radios and antennas. The current project involves making improvements to the way the coax and power run. Right now my den floor looks like an aircraft crash investigation site. Wire and cable from the old Jeep are spread everywhere, awaiting installation into the new Jeep.

Public service opportunities continue through September. Look for an opportunity to volunteer for at least one of these events. Larry's List can give you the necessary details. Ted will be looking for volunteer tour guides for Ensor. Please sign up for one of the slots. It’s only a few hours on a Saturday or Sunday.

The Ensor auction planning is under way along with other activities. The events will start Friday, October 27. The auction will begin at 11 am Saturday, October 28. Look through your shack for those items that need a new home
