1.   IMPORTANT... Next Membership Meeting will be at the Link Transit building, in the Tire Shop (which allows adequate spacing) with masks.  NO ZOOM repeat NO ZOOM. 

2. NOW even more new Hams and equipment to see. Investigate a tab called Ham Shacks which, under direction of the Board, has been moved to the MEMBERS ONLY page. 

 

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

3.  HamFest 2021 has been cancelled due to Covid-19. There will be a Clean-up Party at the Gun Club on June 12th, 2021 with a maximum of 6 volunteers to clean up the clubhouse. Contact Sal Spagnole if you are interested in helping.

 

4.  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  

 

ACARC'S HAM CRAM 2021 at the American Legion Hall is now over.  The event was a huge success, all 7 candidates passed their tests for Technician. See more pictures of both days of the HAM CRAM under the first tab in the GALLERY or click HERE. . 4/20

 

Saturday, welcoming the candidates and letting them know what is next.
Sunday noon, the 7 new Technicians are pretty darn proud of themselves.

Nothing like the smile of success!!  Congratulations to all of you members of the Northwest Overland Society for a job well done.

Regretfully somehow Damien Cooper escaped without getting his "mug shot".  
If he were not wearing a mask you could see his face in the group photo,
top row, second from the left. So be it. Regrets.

An extremely special "Thank You" is due to Wenatchee American Legion Post 10 for offering ACARC the use of their facility for the weekend.  It proved to be a superior venue - great, well-equipped facility and people who went way out of their way to make sure our event would be as successful as it was, especially to the Ladies Auxiliary who rescheduled their monthly meeting so there would be no conflict of two events going on at once.  Forever grateful. 

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.

Below are the entries received as of 1/28/21.

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.
