Our "contest" for this meeting was to bring the oldest dated QSL card. I only noted 3 entries in the event, but others might have had cards I didn't see. George, K9WWT brought a card from 1960. Bruce, W9OTN brought a card from 1955 (QSO with W9SVZ). And the winner is.... (drum roll, please)... John, W9CG had a card from 1954 (QSO with WN0RVE). Congratulations John! And THANKS! to all for bringing in those prized possessions! This contest may come back again, so it might be a good idea to keep digging in those old shoeboxes!

With no objections from the floor, we had our first election of officers. There were two candidates for the two offices, making election unnecessary. Your new President is Stan/W4SV and Secretary-Treasurer is Troy/KC9E. Email and other contact info will be found elsewhere on the website.
