Ed N4EDT reported on the Tornadoes that hit Alabama last week and shared how AR had helped in that disaster.
He asked for ideas on how we could increase the fellowship in our fellowship.
Suggestions were given about sharing surplus equipment - radios, antennas etc with those who are members but are not able to get on air.
Another was to help those with locality restrictions to use the remote stations of other members.
Moonshine and bamboo were discussed at great length.
Craig KL7H had some show and tell on snowblowers.
The Virginia ROAR summit has been pencilled in for the second week of September.
Club projects were given voice with a follow up request that more specific details of the projects be shared with the group.
Bill KC4D told us the Malawi DXpedition is scheduled for late June and early July.
Ed N4EDT adjourned the meeting at 2203Z but kept the zoom opened for those who could join the radio net on 14.290.MHz
