ROAR IPP Ed N4EDT called the meeting to order at 2030Z following an interesting warm up session on ROAR History and alligators. Very enlightening!

ED N4EDT began by introducing us to Goran who then shared his background - location, vocation and his involvement in AR. In turn the members of the group welcomed Goran to the group.
This was followed by reports and discussion of WX, Rotary club activities and projects, especially those related to Polio Day.
Health and Welfare reports of group members and significant others were also shared.
The two regional Vice Presidents gave an update on the status of the international fellowship of ROAR.
Good fellowship, good meeting.
