Ham Of The Year? No, actually our club was fortunate enough to have two club members selected “HAM OF The Year”. Dave Stevens and Ron Burns exemplify the very best of Amateur Radio. Their unselfish willingness to support the club and our activities, their friendliness and respect for others and the upgrading of their Amateur Radio skill sets were the criteria that led to this award. Congratulations to both of you!!

There are three club breakfasts each month. They are held on the 1st and 4th Wednesdays and the Saturday following a club meeting. Many come to breakfast and bring their wives. Many come and do not belong to any club. But everyone has a good time because we all continue to come again. For more details, check out the club activities tab.
