Paul also thanked several members for their notable contributions, including:
John, N4OWG (leadership and organizational advice during club startup,
hosting operation of KØAIR at his house for the QSO Party)
Sid, WØWWH (coordinating meeting room reservations and good checking account terms at the Bank of Bellevue)
Clay, WA6LBU (hosting operation of KØGRL at Elkhorn for the QSO Party)
John, NØTJQ (operation at both the B-29 and QSO Party events)
Articles and ByLaws had just finished final review by Brian Zdan, KMØY, but needed some minor changes before being presented to the incorporators for signature. Paul will follow up on this shortly.
Our affiliation with the ARRL has been approved. Nebraska SM Bill, KEØXQ, will attend a future meeting of the SACMARC to present the certificate (Bill wasn't present tonight).
QSL cards will be ordered "shortly" just as soon as Paul can get in touch with Clay, WA6LBU, and get the desired photograph of Elkhorn for the KØGRL QSL (the KØAIR QSL will have the B-29 photograph). Clay wasn't present tonight.
The SAC Museum exhibit project still remains a possibility, but due to staff changes and slipping of the opening date for the new facility, it is on indefinite hold. Sarah McFarland, current Curator (and former docent at the Western Heritage Museum, who worked with Leo Meyerson, WØGFQ, on the radio exhibit there) is the point-of-contact. Paul and the History Committee will continue to work on this and report back on their progress.
Paul noted that our event agenda for next year was wide open, and any good ideas would be seriously considered. One possibility would be to put both stations on the air for the Armed Forces Day cross-band tests in May, possibly at the same venues as the 50th Anniversary QSO Party ones (Elkhorn and N4OWG's backyard). Paul will research this.
The following members were nominated, and voted into the following offices by acclimation:
President: Paul, K3FU
Vice President: Sonya, KCØAUL
Treasurer: Peggy, NØUEA
Secretary: Ray, N5SEZ
Property Manager: George, KBØZZT
Sonya, KCØAUL, will join the History Committee (currently consisting of Paul, Steve, and Fred KBØLF).
Mark, KCØASN, offered to begin a newsletter for the club, possibly in the same format as the Bellevue club (electronic distribution where possible). Paul will work with Mark on this item.
Paul reminded everyone that dues were due, would be collectible tonight, and due by the March meeting. Those who joined tonight could have their dues applied either to Charter Membership this year, or regular membership the next year.
The meeting was adjourned at approximately 8 PM.
