Field Day: Prepay Meals
For this year’s 2018 Field Day, OCRA and DFMA are asking attendees to prepay ($5) for the Field Day June 23, Saturday 5 PM super and June 24 Sunday Breakfast (will refund if you must cancel, provided written cancellation is received before the food purchase date noted below.) This is necessary to avoid the club losing significant money or, asking members who do show up to pay a higher amount to cover those who do not.
Prepayment authorizes the club to buy food on your behalf and can be by cash or check at the next meeting or mailed. PayPal costs for many small payments is excessive and precludes use of that feature. Meal orders must be received by OCRA by June 18th. Vegetarian meals are available. If you pay and later find you must cancel, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the June 19th food order date, and your payment will be refunded or, you can use it as a tax deductible donations to the club, or extend your memberships, hihi.
The food purchase committee consisting of Lad, MK,and Dee will work with Jean (KR4UB ‘s XYL) to coordinate logistics. We are seeking donations from Food Lion and possible Costco, but will reconsider whether donations are needed for next year.
The DFMA Hamfest was a good success. OCRA club table netted $52. The Volunteer Examiner (VE) session was successful with outcomes for 2 Extra, 4 General, and 3 Technician.
OCRA Board has decided to limit pursuing UNC campus for a repeater location. Instead, the priority will be to keep the 442.150 repeater active and on the air, and ensure we have a trusted, hot-swappable repeater for backup.
We are actively seeking interested OCRA members to join the Repeater “team.” This is a great opportunity for interested Hams to learn more about maintaining and supporting repeaters in the local area. If interested, please leave responsed to this post, or send an email to email@example.com.
