From The President's Desk of George KC6KGH

I breathed a hearty sigh of relief after Field Day and the 4th of July this year. We had our Field Day in the shade, and a BBQ that wouldn't quit.We had a great group and a good time.And thank goodness we didn't have to suffer in the heat doing a Fireworks Booth anymore.Kathy and I thoroughly enjoyed our July 2nd Fireworks Shootoff and BBQ at N6BAR'S Jerry, and KD6EAC Earlene's.That was some good cooking by Earlene and also some of the Sweetest Watermelon I've had in a long time.I guess that makes Earlene the all time Watermelon Thumper,because she really picked a good one.Plus, Hazel KE6NFV brought some fantastic Macaroni Salad, and Potato Salad.For those of you that missed both Barbeque's.......You really missed it, that's all I can say.

It's sad to see our longtime ARRL Section Manager and Vice Director of the Pacific Division, Charles McConnell, "Chuck" W6DPD Retiring. We'll miss him. But we heartily Welcome Dan Pruitt, AE6SX as our new Section Manager, and we look forward to his Sunday Evening Reports at 7:30 PM on our NET on the N6BYH Repeater at 146.76.

I'm excited about the offer to BARA of the Free Use of a Building and Fenced-in Parking lot, anytime we want it for B.A.R.A.'S Activities.I know we'll be taking advantage of it, along with the great Money Making ideas that came up at our last Meeting.Well, that's it for now.I'm looking forward to seeing everyone on the 9th at our next meeting. 73's..George KC6KGH
