Ensor Museum Volunteer May 2018

Thank You to all members of the Johnson County RAC for accepting an important role in the function of the Ensor Park and Museum.

Your job as a volunteer is simple!  Greet people as they arrive at the museum.  If Larry Woodworth, W0HXS -Ensor Park and Museum Manager is busy giving a tour you will watch over them until Larry is available to start another tour.  The idea is to have 3 people staffing the museum (including Larry) so as to ensure the museum is not left unattended and Larry is not alone.

There is plenty of ham radio history at the museum and if things are slow you can walk around and take in that history.  You are also welcome to use the equipment in the radio room off the country kitchen!

President's Corner

April 2018

Snow on April Fool’s Day! I thought it was spring. I hope everyone traveling on Easter Sunday traveled safely. Coming back from our family gathering was a bit of a challenge within the Kansas City metro area.

Please note the new start time of the Business meeting which is now 7 PM CDT. The change was suggested and voted on at the club meeting. Yes, that does mean that we will head to pizza earlier.

We will be getting a jump with Field Day 2018 planning on April 27th. We have the same location as last year. The farm site provided good good separation between stations. If you have any ideas to help improve the setup bring these up during the program. One thing we seem to leave to the last minute is the Saturday evening meal.

Public service events are returning in April. Learn more about your equipment by putting it to good use. Volunteering is a very good way to meet other hams. Spend a few hours helping others.

Last year the Club provided volunteer guides for Ensor museum. The museum is open only on Saturday and Sunday and needs volunteer for about four hours each day. This year as last we will have a drawing for the gift certificate for those that cover a shift.
