Hello, all Club Members and Fellow Amateurs,



As you have heard from our club secretary Lou Noble VE3LDY already this is a
follow up reminder of the Annual General Meeting of the Manitoulin Amateur
Radio Club Inc. Each year the club executive has a responsibility to report
to the membership on the status of the club and as President I will be happy
to give the annual report to all. I am inviting you all to attend as we have
many topics to discuss including the opening of public events and of course
the election of the executive position of president as my tenure comes due.
We are looking for nominations of the position of president and if anyone
would like to take on the position, please put your name forward and please
send it to Lou VE3LDY (her call sign at gmail.com) . We have
many events planned this summer and require your feedback and what you would
like to see.



So please join us on Sunday 24 April 2022 at 1:00 PM EDT on zoom for this
event. An invitation will be sent to you a few days prior to the meeting.
Please find enclosed the agenda and the minutes of last year's meeting. In
the meantime, if you would like something added to the agenda, please let me
know. I look forward to speaking with you all at the meeting.

The Manitoulin Amateur Radio Club appreciates all the support that the amateur
community has given us over the year as members and in general the donations
we have received. Now that the club has entered the digital information
technology world, we have created a donation page on our website. This makes
things easier if you live afar from the club and wish to donate. We appreciate all
the members paying their dues and others that have donated to the upgrades we
have done to the repeater and equipment. By no means is there any obligation to
donate to the club. This page was created by Rusty VE3WVA as our webmaster
that if someone wished to donate it would be easy to do so. Again, we appreciate
all the support amateurs have given us throughout the years. We look froward for
you to participate in any club activities and look froward to hearing you on the air.
Happy hamming

With heavy heart and great sadness, I bring the news of a passing of a
long-time member of the MARC, the passing of Dr. David Filmer W9DF from West
Lafayette Indiana on Sunday evening 23 May 21. Dave was a very close friend,
mentor, and father to me in my amateur radio life and contributed to the
knowledge of all aspects of life to all members of the club. My prayers and
love go out to Christa Keck his wife and life companion when she called and
gave me the sad news last night. I won't go on at this point but will later
because I could write pages of the accomplishments of Dave and how he made
the Manitoulin Amateur Radio Club better through his guidance and knowledge.
We would not have the digital technology in our club had it have not been
through Dave.



I plan to hold a memorial net on Sunday 30 May 21 at 10:00 AM which will be
recorded for Christa. If you have memories or stories you would like to
share, I encourage you to check and share them with us all. Once Christa is
feeling up to it, I have asked her to return to Zoom with us and the D-Star
nets that both she and Dave have been a big part of it. I have added the
link to Dave's obituary below.

Thank You

Al
