Metro DX Meeting July 15, 2011

The meeting was called to order by President Bob Jacobson, K9CJ, at approximately 7:40. 

A new meeting location is in the works.  More details to follow once all is finalized.  It was noted by all attendees that K9CJ has been working very hard on this issue and is to be commended for all his efforts.

Secretary/Treasurer, W9NKV, Rick Cartell, read the minutes from the June meeting. The treasurers report of $1060.63 in the checking account with $75.01 of cash on hand. 

On a personal note; the Secretary/Treasurer offered his resignation effective at the end of this term, December 2011.  He thanked the club for the opportunity to serve in this position.   

New business; K9AJ is to be on another DXpedition to several Alaskan Islands. 

Old business; K9PY picnic update; Jess, AI9L and Patti AF9H have agreed to supply hot dogs and hamburgers for the picnic.  It was decided that any other main dish items are to be supplied by individuals seeking other desired food.  Members should let K9PY what they will be contributing to the picnic.  A bean bag tournament and other games will be provided. 

N9AKR and K9PY applied for and will receive the W.U.S.T. award.  Congratulations to both and all that have received the award thus far.

An attempt by K9CJ to play this evening’s video was made.  Due to technical problems the video could not be retrieved. 

At approximately 8:00 the official part of the meeting closed.  A discussion about Dayton, the W9DXCC convention, and good ol’ ham talk ensued. 

Members present included; K9PY, N9AKR, K9BWQ & Delores, K9CJ, and W9NKV

Respectfully submitted by Rick Cartell, W9NKV, Secretary/Treasurer
