Old Business:

  • Road Apple Rally – Many club members participated in the Road Apple Rally. Devin KD5NMX was in charge and filled all positions with volunteers. We even had 2 more than the usual count participating. The management of the Road Apple Rally said that they would like to have us back next year. Everything went very smoothly. Thanks to all of those who participated!

New Business

  • Christmas party – The Christmas Party will not happen this year.
  • New Year’s Potluck – The New Year’s Potluck this year will be January 4th at the Walkers’ place from 9am – 1pm. Before planning or preparing your contribution to this potluck please contact Sarah Walker KB5SPX. Sarah will take calls and coordinate dishes to ensure a balanced selection of foods and refreshments.
  • Keith Miller Radio Equipment When Keith became a Silent Key he generously left some of his Radio Equipment with the club. Paull NM5PH did research online and priced the equipment according to its value on the current market. An email will be sent out for any equipment which does not sell by the time everyone actually leaves the meeting.
    • An email will be sent to club members. Then 2 weeks later, if it has not sold then an email will be sent to the Durango Amateur Radio Club so that they will get a chance to buy it. If any radio hasn’t sold by next meeting (Nov 14th) then it will be listed for sale online.

Bill KK5ZH, proposed that the meeting adjourn and Paul KE5FBN seconded. A vote was unanimous and the meeting adjourned at 20:06
