Greetings SBARC Members and Guests
SBARC has a very interesting club meeting planned for you this Friday
night, November 18.
Of course, every November we have our election of officers for the
following year. In addition to those nominated by our Nominating
Committee, you may nominate someone from the floor if you wish. Be sure
they will be willing to serve.
Hopefully, we will also have a video presentation of the terrific
Jamboree-on-the-Air held at the Sedgwich Reserve last month with SBARC
members and the local Boy Scouts. Many Scouts are now interested in
Amateur Radio. Thanks to Justin Soenke, the son of Al Soenke, WA6VNN,
for being the videographer. The video should be very good. I am sure
you will enjoy it.
Additionally, the club will be having its annual SIG (Special Interest
Group) show-and-tell all around the room. I hope there will be space for
all the demonstrations. If you have a special interest, please bring
something to share with us.
Also, our Book Store will be open for business. Many ARRL books and a
good variety of others will be there for you to purchase and take home.
As usual, we will have a "Free-To-Good-Home table" and you can add to the
goodies there as well as take home stuff from there. C'mon, clean out
Dennis, WB6OBB, will have a whole slew of great door prizes for you to
try to win. Bring some unwanted cash -- lots of it. He needs the money.
If you feel so motivated, please consider bringing some goodies for the
refreshment table -- cookies, cake, donuts, fresh fruit -- anything.
This promises to be one of the more enjoyable club meetings we have had
in a while. Your presence will make it even better.
The meeting will be at the Goleta Union School District board room, 401
N. Fairview Ave. which is directly across the street from the Goleta
The meeting starts at 7:30 P.M., but you might like to come earlier and
meet the others in our club as well as see all the goodies at the SIG
exhibits. This past Saturday at the VE testing session, 13 folks either
became hams or upgraded. Most will be coming and it would be great for
everyone to welcome them. A hand shake or a pat on the back would be in
Next year's dues will again be $24 for the entire year and our Membership
Chair lady Ingrid Steele, KB6MQN, will be there to sign you up. Cash,
check, money order, silver doubloons or gold bullion will all work.
See you Friday,
Darryl Widman, KF6DI
