Minutes of Baldwin Hills ARC Meeting 12/3/97

The twelfth and last 1997 meeting of the Baldwin Hills Amateur Radio Club was called to order by the Secretary, Hugh, NV6H, at 7:55 PM on December 3, 1997. At 8:08, the President, Greg, KD6AIS, arrived and took over the chair. Also in attendance was David, N6HGJ, our esteemed Membership Chairman/ Treasurer.

I. Old Business

  1. The Secretary read the minutes of the November meeting. No corrections were made.
  2. The Treasurer gave the Club's bank balance as $504.42, including two new memberships and several deposits for the Christmas party.
  3. The President re-opened the nominations for the 1998 election of officers. Ed, WA6MDJ, was nominated and seconded in absentia. However, he showed up at 8:24 and, as per his Constitutional privilege, declined the nomination. It appears that Dieter, KD6LVW , will become President by default, as he was the sole nominee for VP. There will apparently be no VP, Hugh (yours truly) will remain Secretary, and David will keep his job, probably for a long, long time.
  4. WA6MDJ arrived as the President had re-opened the November question of whether a cheaper meeting room should be used. Ed noted that the room only costs $25 a month, far less than anyone else pays, and thus the same as the smaller rooms would cost. The President said that he would talk about this again if anything changed.
  5. While Ed had the floor, he discussed the upcoming Mount Harvard repeater maintenance. Arrangements were made to pay the rigger who was going to climb the tower.
  6. Everyone was again reminded of the Christmas party at Bruno's. This event was held, and it was an unqualified success, just as great as we'd remembered it from 1996. The ongoing question of a meeting date for January was settled by deciding to skip the month, due to conflict with the winter CES in Las Vegas.

II. New Business

  1. There was no new business. The President thanked Samir for the typically awesome refreshments, and Jim Martin, for coming.

With this, we adjourned at 8:37 PM, until February 4, 1998.
