October Meeting

At our October meeting we will have a presentation by L. Paul Verhage KD4STH. He is a former air force officer who went into teaching science in high school. He writes a column for Nuts & Voltsmagazine on balloon flights to the edge of space (since 2004.) He's written an article for the ARRL Handbook on telemetry and navigation.

We will also be looking for nominations for club officers at our October meeting for our election in November. The offices are President, Vice President, Secretary & Treasurer. You can nominate yourself. You do need to be a club member to run for office and vote. If you can't make it to the meeting let us know via the contact us page or let another member know.
