Messages Received.
From Chairman Laszlo to Bob Butler WB7RQG   -  in response to Bob's much
appreciated "application" for the post of Treasurer.   (It is rather heavily edited !)
"Greetings Bob.
What a pleasant way to solve our Central Treasurer problem. I thank you for your
"Service above Self" decision. I am welcoming you with joy in behalf of ROAR.
I am planning to have Regional Treasurers who will report to you. That way a direct
local control and line of communication is secured.
Will reorganize our ROAR Web membership list as well to show that a member
"paid trough"  as the number after his name shows. Noel can do that with our Web Master.
We are departing from CT tomorrow morning to DL and will fly to LA on the 28th of April.
Will be in Chicago on the 16th of June but before or after the convention you can contact
me at my son in Seattle. Alex Racz Email:
Thank you again Bob in behalf of our beloved Fellowship: The Best of RI.
73 Laszlo AD6XX de CT"
