We will unfortunately not be having our traditional Annual General Meeting in June when we hear reports and elect an Executive for the next year. The continuing health situation makes a gathering impossible and such business is not very conducive to a Zoom format. We plan to hold the Annual General Meeting in the Fall.
However, that doesn't mean that nothing's going on! Dave, VE3BOW, our President, will chair an online meeting with news of interest to members, including plans for an alternative format Field Day (let’s keep our figures crossed, chess pieces are still in motion) and plans for a July Zoom meeting (the first summer meeting of the OARC, to my knowledge). Once the formal part of the meeting is over, Dave will loosen the reins and we will have an online rag chew where old friends can reconnect and socialize.
An email will be sent to members with information on how to join the Zoom meeting. Guests who wish to join in are more than welcome and they can ask for this information by sending an email to Executive at OARC.net.
If you are planning to operate Field Day independently please attribute your contacts to the “Ottawa ARC” before making your submission to the ARRL. This way, your points will be added to the OARC total.
See you on Zoom on Wednesday, June 10 at 7:30 PM!Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
