KC0GND is resigning as Treasurer - looking for volunteers ( Bob has since reconsidered)

KB0TVP - K0RGR and K0VH discussed this fellow, who has become the subject of a formal complaint with FCC on behalf of the club and the EOC and others..

It was moved and passed on a show of hands that the Education Committee , consisting of Bill,K0RGR, Doug, KD0UGB, Kari Ann, KC0WIP, and Stan, KD0BQ Are authorized to spend up to $1,000 to provide books to the participating educational institutions as they see fit. The motion passed 21 to 12.

It was also moved to buy another ICE Bandpass Filter for Field Day for $300. The motion passed on a voice vote.

John, N0HZN will be making a big purchase of Anderson Power Poles for those who are interested. Powerpoles are the standard connector for ARES, so it makes it easy for us to swap equipment around as needed.

Respectfully Submitted
K0RGR - Bill Osler - Secretary
