   To late to plan a Hamfest for 2010, no vendors available, no affordable location.  Also  Al K7IJY  who is usually our point man for these events is unavailable

   It sounds as though the Sudden Valley group is planning a flee market or similar activity, they have secured a site. Anyone who wants to be involved contact Brian KN0N

  MBARC not planning on holding a field day 2010 Both Blaine and Sudden Valley groups are holding an event. If someone wants to organize F.D. for our club contact Bob W7ZWG

   Brian KN0N made a motion to donate $250 to the Red Cross as a memorial to Jim AC7UM 2nd by half the members !


  Since we are not having a flee market or field day is there any interest in having a picnic/BBQ this summer. Please bring ideas to next months meeting
