Old Business

Ron Grossl reported that the model airplane club at Stonecrest voted not to allow us to use their field for the VHF contest on September eighth.  Several other sites were proposed, but no one could get permission on such short notice.




Our upcoming hamfest was discussed.

Janie Wells reported that we would have the hamfest displayed on the electronic sign coming into town. 

Also, our local newspapers and radio stations are supposed to have ads for the hamfest and Paul Manuel in Pikeville is having spots run on the network of radio stations he works for.

We also stated that club members would not be elegible for prizes and would need to pay admission fees at the hamfest.

Don Castle will bring a PA system for us to use at the hamfest.

Ron Grossl and Austin Denyer will man the admissions at the door.


To make sure that everything is ok at the Recreation Center, a panel will meet at the rec center on September 18th at 2:00 p.m.


Our final meeting before the hamfest will be on September 20th at 7:00 at our usual meeting place in the Mayo Methodist Church.


Motion to adjourn was made and passed at 8:10
