President's Message

September is upon us. That means that the CLARA nets will be back on the air. Let us all hope for good propagation and also that our participants have their antennas up and running! It will be great to hear what everyone has been up to over the summer. It doesn't have to be exciting - in fact, a calm and tranquil summer makes for good news! Please check in when you can so we know you are doing well!

September in Canada also means that the days are getting shorter, the nights cooler, local food is at its best, and the garden season is rushing past. Make the best of the good weather and the good food. 

I am going to mention again that the CLARA Contest next March may be called the CLARA QSO Party. So many of our YLs are frightened of contests and are missing out on the fun we have in this CLARA event. Contesters laugh at us for calling it a contest. It IS more like a party - a chance to catch up with old friends, make new ones, get some radio practice, and have some fun. All recent winners have stopped to visit with every contact, and have had lots of fun and no pressure. This would not change with a QSO Party, but maybe it would give some folks the courage to join us. 

Take care, and have a good September 

Till next time, 33,73
