If you tried to enter data on Tuesday the 15th, there was a glitch, please re-enter now, I believe it is all fixed.

1.  Just a few photos of the ACARC Club Meeting at the Dryden Gun Club on Saturday the 12.  It was SO nice to see a return to normalcy and people's faces.  Excellent meeting and a lot got done.   More pictures are coming shortly mostly dealing with our crew polishing up the Gun Club as a "thank you" for letting us use the facility. 



































2. The Club Trailer is not exactly a work in progress because it is just loaded with all the donated equipment the Club has received (computers, monitors, keyboards, radios, and it goes on). Check out some photos of just exactly what it looks like HERE.  Either the fully operational gear will be sold or donated or it will have to be scrapped so as to be able to get inside the trailer and start equipping it for Club use.  Stay tuned for the plan.

 You will see familiar faces - but now you will see their Ham Shacks too!  This collection gathered together by Bill Miller W7JFJ. It's being presented in order of the year the Ham got his/her license when available.  Add yours to the collection. Send to millerstsound@gmail.com3/5

5.  Under SWAP & SHOP there is a sub-tab called FREE OFFERS.  In this area we will have added a way to help you "get rid" of your excess "treasures".  Why not offer these "gems" to others?  Descriptions and Photos to: swabby57@icloud.com

Getting business done with the members and guests on a very nice, very interesting, and very profitable day. Yes we had a quorum, but just barely - sure need more participation from our members.

Attention to those of you who may have Artistic/Design talent.
There is a move afoot to possibly upgrade or re-design or modernize our club's logo.  The need exists to digitize the logo for many reasons in this computer-driven age, so if we are going to do that, it is the perfect time to take a good hard look at the logo and improve it.  
Give it a try and email your input to swabby57@icloud.com
and the Board will consider all the entries.

10 digit phone dialing, October 24th.

One of the most regular and well-attended events that ACARC sponsors is our Tuesday night Net Check-ins.  Just to give you an idea of the activity this year, see the spreadsheet below.  A greater number of people are involved here than in our Club Meetings - or just about anything else we do. 
Weekly updates are especially important during these times of change and instantaneous re-arrangement. 
 
You are welcome to join in the Net formally, or perhaps just listen in to the announcements on Tuesdays at 8:00 pm - if nothing else just so you can keep up to speed on events happening - or not happening - or dates changing.
GUESTS are ALWAYS welcome.
