AGM Battery for Meadow View Radio Equipment – Bob Morse AB1EP was able to get the club a deal on an AGM battery. The cost was $212 and the battery is at Meadow View. Thank you, Bob!
Nominating Committee Slate – The nominating committee came up with the following Slate of Officers to be voted upon at our January 11th. 2018 meeting :
                President Chris Stanley N1CJS
                Vice-President Dick Small W1KRP
                Secretary/Treasurer  Position open
(Please note that KA1BRA did not mention that Jeff Hanscom KA1DBE is willing to serve on the Board replacing John Ashmore KB1PXP. (Other Board members are John Peckenham KQ1P, Chris Weaver AB1PZ, and Rob Collins W8HAP as EAWA Trustee.) After the meeting, I did speak with Joan Hildreth N1NUA about the Secretary/Treasurer open position. She is willing to give it a try, if I stay on to show her the ropes and fill in when she cannot attend a meeting. Both of us are willing to give it a try for a year. The Secretary/Treasurer suggestion would have to come from the floor at the January meeting as well as KA1DBE joining the Board. Please note that other nominations are welcome from the floor at the January meeting!

Field Day Site – Phil N1EP suggested Sumner High School as a possible Field Day site for 2018. The school is in the public eye and possibly could get kids there to check out the action.  Chuck AC1BS said that the final decision is up to the school principal.

Phil N1EP made a motion to adjourn so all could partake of the Pot Luck feast! Rob W8HAP seconded the motion. So done at 12:14 PM

Respectfully submitted ,
Evie Sargent KA1BRA
