Bob inquired as to whether license trustee W7GLC and equipment trustee KC7UHN had renewed their membership with MBARC.  Mert (acting treasurer for Roy) said there was no indication that they had.  If they do not renew Bob said the board will have to fill those vacancies for MBARC.


Bob said he had a conversation with N1DLC at the American Red Cross and N1DLC suggested that the donation approved by the membership in memory of AC7UM be specified for communications needs. Mert wrote a check for $250 payable to the American Red Cross with the memo stating “Communication Equipment”. Bob will deliver the check in the next week.


Bob said MBARC member Jim W7DQM had contacted Rodger and others regarding his insistence on receiving the Groundwave in paper form by postal mail.  Bob wrote him a detailed email explaining that the club had discontinued printing and mailing.  Bob has not received a reply.  Bob suggested that if he requests a refund the treasurer will issue him a check for his 2010 dues and cancel his membership


General member meeting will be a program on soldering 101.
