Our annual HamFest has been CANCELLED by your Board of Directors for this year. 

Due to the club's inability to gather in person for our usual events, it has been decided to continue Board and Member remote meetings all through the summer.  These will be accomplished via a Directed Net system on our W7TD repeater. 

WE may try a ZOOM meeting if there is a Presentation being made outside of the Club meeting hours.

Finally (If all goes well) our annual September picnic will be greatly expanded to include prizes and catered food, plus more.

1.                                     SPECIAL NOTE: VOLUNTEERS NEEDED    

The Teanaway Country 100 foot race is scheduled this year on September 12 and 13 and event organizers are seeking volunteer ham radio operators for communication support. It's a fun gig and does not require fancy-schmancy skills or experience.

 

If you think you might be interested but not sure what it's all about, you are encouraged to read the article written by Jim K7MQV about his first time experience at last year's Teanaway Country 100 race.  Those wishing to volunteer should contact the event comms coordinator: Randy K7RHT <k7rht@TRGLLC.us>

A CLUB IS DEFINED AS AN ORGANIZATION OF PEOPLE WITH A COMMON PURPOSE OR INTEREST, WHO MEET REGULARLY AND TAKE PART IN SHARED ACTIVITIES.  Folks, it's the "TAKE PART" thing that is SO very important for our success. Please HELP when needed.

ARE YOU PAID UP FOR 2020?

As of 5/11/20 only 63 of our 104 members are paid up.

Check your status on the MEMBERS ONLY  page.

 

​Dues for club membership are payable each December for the next calendar year: January - December, prorating no longer available.   Last paid information has been added to the (private) MEMBERS ONLY list, in the right hand column of that page.  

One of the most regular and well-attended events ACARC sponsors is our weekly Net Check-in.  Just to give you an idea of the responses just this year, the below spreadsheet is offered for your consideration.  More people are involved 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.
