Tri-Town Upcoming Events
February Meeting Friday, Feb 21,
2014, 8 PM at the Hazel Crest Village Hall:
There will be the usual business meeting followed by Mark KA9OOI who is going
to give a program entitled "Everything you wanted to know about the Raspberry Pi". Refreshments and raffle will be available
club board meetings - held the second Monday of each month, 7:30 PM at the Bunker. All members are invited to attend.
memberships expire December 31, 2013. So that means that Dues are coming due for 2014 membership. The Board of Directors reviewed
the membership fee amount taking into account the anticipated number of members, our annual costs for insurance and the repeater.
Fearing that a raise in due might cause a drop in membership, it was decided not to increase due for 2014. The dues are on par with
other local clubs. This of course is based on the hopes that the existing membership will renew and that the membership will continue
to support the raffles and refreshment donations. Buying tickets for the current raffle of the HT is one of the ways to help support
the club. Membership applications are in each Oscillator. Please fill yours out soon and it would be great to get a friend to become
a new member.
Election of Officers for 2014
Elections of Officers for 2014 were held during the December 2013 meeting. The
following were elected: Ed Stroh K9EGS President, Matt Schumann N9OTL Vice-president, Jim Everard WD9GXU Secretary, Trish Gunderson
N9WDG Treasurer, and Todd Schumann KA9IUC Director. Bruce Haffner WD9GHK and Brian Bedoe WD9HSY continue their terms as Directors.
Tri-Town held a special raffle for a Baofeng Model UV-5RA ultra-compact dual band HT during the fall months. The winning ticket
was drawn at the December Club meeting and it was bought by Mac Kirkpatrick WA9CYL. Congratulations Mac! The Club would like to thank
all those who supported the Club by buying raffle tickets. One hundred percent of profit from ticket sales went to the Club as the
radio was donated.
