Ron-KI5FR, reported Navarre couldn't get people together for the December class, but were looking to have one in January instead. Okaloosa Gas is wanting to have a training class as well, more information to come.
New Ham Brochure, by Doug-KI4YKK still in the works. A date will be picked out for the committee to get together and produce the next Brochure.
Bob-N4CU, brought up the sign in sheet and contact issues. There are some people who have not yet done a contact paper. This needs to be redone next year. A sign in sheet needs to be kept up for anybody and everybody who uses the Fire Station.
Paxton Heritage Day report was given by Bob-KI4MEU. He reported they made many 20 meter contacts and made some pretty good 2 meter long distance contacts early on as well. There were a couple of people from other clubs and local folks enjoying the festivities.
Cal-W4GMH, has been told that the club can put a permanent sign in the front of the Fire Station. The sign would be placed under the existing fire station sign. A motion was made by Cal-W4GMH, to find someone to make the sign and purchase it. Glen-KD4QBG seconded it.
Ron-KI5FR, brought up an idea about the club station being open once day a month. Discussion followed and Ron made a motion to come up with a date to open the clubhouse once a month. It was seconded by Bob-KI4MEU. All were in favor.
Bob-W5RE, made a motion to move the meeting night to either a Tuesday or Thursday. It was generally decided that the 2nd Thursday would be best.
