Old Business

  • Issue from the zoom meeting in may:
    • We seem to have gotten the Trustees’ terms mixed up from last year Please note the terms above and let us know if anyone thinks this is not correct
  • Club Officers:
    • It was stated that the club officers have all agreed to stay on until the end of the year. After that at least one, Bobbie N5XDQ will need to step down for personal reasons.
  • Dues:
    • The dues for this year remain at $10
  • 2020 Audit:
    • Paull NM5PH reported that the audit was performed by the 3 designated trustees and all items were in order. The paperwork from the audit was accepted by the secretary.
  • Club Insurance:
    • The reason the club had insurance was for liability purposes for activities which club members no longer partake in
      • Paull NM5PH stated that These activities once included climbing towers, which would have made Insurance a very reasonable choice
    • It was stated that, for reference, last year’s insurance was $323.20
    • One member thought it could be possible that some club insurance might be required in order to be an ARRL affiliated club so more research will be done to see if that is the case before a vote happens at the next meeting in September..

  • Road Apple Rally:
