Meetings are held the second Thursday of the month at 7:30pm of most months at the Farmington Fire Station #6 on the west end of Farmington NM on the South side of Main Street (US 64).

The meeting was called to order by Donnie KJ5GQ, at 19:30.

There were about 14 attendees. Exact count not possible because secretary forgot to pass around sign in sheet.

Treasurer’s Report

The Treasurer’s report was that Bobbie N5XDQ is waiting on the Bank Statement at the time of the meeting so there is no Treasurer’s report yet.

Secretary’s Report

Motion made by Paul KE5FBN to accept the minutes as posted, Seconded by Sarah KB5SPX, Motion Passed.

Old Business:

  • Road Apple Rally – Road Apple Rally will be on October 5th.

New Business

  • Christmas Party – We are unsure if a Christmas Party will be feasible this year. We will discuss this more in October.
  • Potluck – At this potluck there were too many sweets and not enough main dishes. At future potlucks it might be better to coordinate via a sign-up sheet or something.
  • New Year’s Potluck – The New Year’s Celebration will be January 4th 9AM-1PM at Donnie’s and that will be a great time for members to pay the annual club does.
  • Repeater Donation – Ben Mc Gaha KB5ITS constantly maintains and improves an excellent and popular repeater system in our region which most of us use. It was proposed that we make a donation of $200 to help him out with costs. Motion was made by Pat KG5ZL and was seconded by Sarah KB5SPX. Motion passed unanimously.

Motion to close the meeting was made by Bobbie N5XDQ and was seconded by Pay KG5ZL, Motion passed and meeting ended at 11:51
