BARA PRESIDENT'S REPORT

From The President's Desk of George KC6KGH

A New Year has arrived, bringing us the usual cold weather and fog.John & Hazel are warming up in Arizona, Lisa Pierce had a Birthday, I received the Ham of the Year award & have this Monster Trophy in my Living room....it looks like a shrine.We all made it another year, thank God.Our membership has risen.Our Officers for the year 2010 changed a little bit.I'm still President, Jerry N6BAR is Vice President, Earlene KD6EAC is now Treasurer,Kathy KI6UIN is still Secretary, and Jack KA6VXC, Dan KE6UHG are still Directors, while we added another Director and Long-time Member Tex Sanders to that post. Those attending the Christmas Dinner agreed to Eliminate the Sunday Nite Net on the 146.76 Repeater for several reasons.And a big thank you to Mike N6BYH for his kindness in giving BARA access to it.Thanks again, Mike.We have been thinking for quite some time of moving the Net to H.F. or even a VHF or UHF Simplex Frequency.We'll let everyone know As soon as it happens.Well, that's about it for now.I hope everyone has recuperated from the Holidays and 2010 offers us a lot of opportunities for growth in Amateur Radio.
