RAC Maple Leaf Member

Eric (VA7NX) received his Maple Leaf Operators certificate this past week. The certificate is a token of appreciation issued by RAC for joining the optional group. The Maple Leaf Operators Group was formed as an incentive for people to financially support the cash strapped national organization. Hopefully we will see more club members join the group in short order.

New Rate for Annual Dues

At the March Meeting, the membership voted to increase the annual dues of the club. Rates had never been increased since the founding of the club so it was felt that we were well overdue. The rate increase is required to cover the cost of the recently purchased RAC liability insurance which provides coverage for club activities and for the personal coverage of club members who are also RAC members.

The new rate of $40.00 will begin with the 2012 membership year - dues start being collected in September of 2011.

New Ham!
