Old Business:
-Hamfest: Approval from Arcadia for holding the event in 2024. Club table will need new staffing and a PA system announcer for 2024. Volunteers are needed for those and a number of activities (ticket sales, food orders, etc.).
-Webpage and Facebook: both in operation. Content for both are always appreciated. Need someone for Facebook.
-Elections: Club President position is now open; Bill N3WD tendered his office resignation–thank you Bill for your years of devotion to the club. Elections deferred by members in attendance; time needed to plan new slate.
-Picnic: possible site near Westminster. POTA (Parks On The Air) activation would be an interesting activity. Checking on validity of location for POTA.

-Repeater: no report

-Local ham Ricki VE6VBF: donations have been made by various parties to help get him on the air.

REMINDER: New fiscal year began 10/01; dues are now being collected.
