We had a pretty good turn out for the Christmas Festival. It was a brisk 21 degrees when I arrived shortly before 8:00 a.m. After Ted and Josh got there we quickly set up the canopy, tables and Irv’s 3 band vertical antenna. We then put out the brochures and notepads followed by the hf and vhf/uhf stations. As you can see Santa came by and we acted like little kids. Santa used the hf station to call the North Pole and speak with his elves. We were insured that Caldwell County residents had been good enough to receive Christmas gifts again this year. Also stopping by was Conrad the Crawdad, the mascot for the Hickory Crawdads baseball team. We offered to send ARRL Radiograms but had no takers. Many people were interested in ham radio and we provided them with more information with the club’s contact information.

Caldwell County NC Fire & Life Safety Festival 2014
Testing and learning how to send emails to email subscribers.
It was called to my attention at the last meeting that the constitution and bylaws were not on the website. You will find them under the Club Information page under the link Constitution/Bylaws.
If you have any questions regarding the website, please let me know.
The Lenoir Amateur Radio Club will be participating in the Lenoir downtown Christmas festival!
As people come from near and far, browsing Christmas wares while sipping Hot Chocolate, they will have an opportunity to learn about our favorite hobby; Amateur Radio.
If you would like to participate in the festivities, please contact Tom Land at email@example.com. Tom would be most grateful for your assistance (in the spirit of Christmas of course)!
After consideration at the last meeting, we decided that there needed to be a single place to send club related news. The best idea was to house everything on the website so I have added the email addresses to our subscriber list. The emails have no way to be accessed except by admins so they are safe and not publicly viewable.
Look for notifications and other club emails to come through this avenue. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at the contact us page.
The next meeting for LARC is October 9th 2014 at 7:00 p.m. at the Gamewell Fire Department. It is time to nominate members for club officers for 2015. We will be discussing the trailer work on both the communications trailer and the antenna trailer. There will be an ARES meeting after the club meeting. Anyone is welcome.
