This past Friday was our very first meeting at the new Edmonds Community Center and also the grand unveiling of the new club station. It was a great turnout and it was so fabulous to see the official VE7BAR station in action. Lou and Ron gave us a tour of all the cabinet features ... very impressive! Ron did such an excellent job building the cabinet and both he and Lou installed all the various equipment inside. Support for this project has been overwhelming ... from Rona Home and Garden #176 who donated all the cabinet supplies to the private donations of computer and radio equipment and the work crew who installed the antennas ... Thank You!!!
This Friday, Sept 6th, we have our first meeting at the new Edmond’s Community Center from 7pm to 10pm. Yeah!
We are in Meeting Room 3 – Rm 212 … upstairs, not far from the elevator. There is street and underground parking available off of Humphries.
Our new club station has already been moved in and the antenna tower is up. There’s just a little more work required to get it all going and I think some of that will be happening during the meeting. It'll be great to finally have a station available again and I know more than a few of you have been waiting for this for a while (myself included).
Unfortunately we won’t be able to use our coffee machine in the room so you’ll need to bring your own beverage or purchase from the café on the main floor of the centre.
Hope to see you all there!!
There will be a Field Day planning meeting on Tuesday, June 11th @7pm at the Tommy Douglas Library. Members from the Burnaby, Coquitlam, and New Westminster clubs are invited to attend.
This year we're hoping to get a little more activity going with newbies and YLs and especially new YLs so bring your ideas and enthusiasm!
There will be no social meeting on Friday, June 7th as the meeting room at the library is unavailable for us that day. See you on the 21st!
We will not be having our regular social meeting on Friday, April 5th (room booking conflict).
Hope to see you all at our business meeting on Friday, April 19th!
At the beginning of this fiscal year for the club the Executive asked the Directors to write up a formal list of duties for the Equipment Manager position (the Equipment Manager is appointed by the club’s Directors).
BARC Equipment Manager Duties Feb 2013 (pdf) is the list of duties that they have come up with (with a couple of wording edits by VA7KJW).
Please keep in mind that this list is not intended to cover HOW those duties are to be carried out … only WHAT the duties are. The next step in the process will cover the detailed procedures involved in carrying out each of the four duties.
We will be voting on these duties, as written in the above linked document, at our March 15th business meeting.
If you are a member in good standing and wish to vote but cannot attend the meeting please advise the Executive via email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Thursday, March 14th 10:00pm. Please include either what your vote is (yes or no) or the name of the person who is authorized to cast your vote at the meeting.
