The first of a few updates/announcements!

Hello, all!

KEØLMY here!

I have to break this month’s meeting updates into a few posts because we covered so much and there were so many important things which happened that I wish to share with you!

I have updated the EC Blog (here) with a very important “Changing of the Guard” post.

Thank you to Rick for his years of service to the BC ARES as the EC. He laid the groundwork which will serve us for generations to come. We also thank him for his continued participation, guidance, and assistance as we move forward. We appreciate his upkeep of the repeaters, towers, antennas and other equipment we all use to enjoy our hobby!

I hope our visitors will take the time to read my blog. I have included pictures from the presentation.

More to come in the next post!
