PRESIDENT’S ANNUAL REPORT

Scott Garcia K0FRP. Good and bad moments with bad band conditions. Fox hunts have been challenging this year. Busy year for me. Field Day site has been lined up at Jim Moravec NØCOT’s ranch out near Strasburg CO, somewhat up on a hill, about 50 minutes east of Denver. Thanks to all the officers and folks who helped out the club and donated items for Vince’s hamfest garage sale. Jim Pope KG0PP and Vince Kumagai KI0RB represented the club well at the hamfests. There were several good presentations at CQC meetings during the year, including Vince’s talk on rehabing an old radios. A lot of the info is posted on the website. Dick got the new web based newsletter set up at cqclowdown.org. A grounding presentation we had a while back was very good, more specific than what you find in the handbook.

TREASURER’S REPORT

Roger Wendell WB0JNR. Bank balance: $3,144.88 in checking and savings combined. The balanced has stabilized somewhat since the club is not spending money on postage and printing for the Low Down paper version. Treasurer’s report accepted with no objections.
