"There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October."

- Nathaniel Hawthorne 


2017 YEAR of the YL Ham Radio Operator



President's Message

Hello Everyone,

October is here, and that means, it is getting closer to that season we call winter.  One can only hope that we have a nice winter this year.  I don't think B.C. wants all the snow again this year, but I do know that the Prairies would really appreciate some of that white stuff laden with moisture.  We are so dry.  The Eastern provinces would just like a winter without all the ice.  Okay, getting kind of picky here, so let's get on with something else.

Harv and I had a lovely 3 day get away for our 50th wedding anniversary, and we had a marvelous time just soaking up the healing waters at the Dead Sea of Canada, actually known as Manitou Springs Hotel and Resort.   Click here just in case you are curious.  The only other place that is saltier is the Dead Sea.   

I have not been on the 20 M CLARA net, as the first week I could not hear anyone, the next couple of weeks were spent at doctor's appointments, and the last one for the month of September was spent in the basement installing a new hot water heater.  Hopefully I will be able to get on the air more this month.

I have removed several old article and old photo's due to the fact that we share the server with the YLRL site, and yes, starting to remove some of their older stuff too.  Besides, it just keeps the website fresh and vibrant.

I have finally gotten some pictures resized of the convention.  Because there are so many, I have just added more pages with them.   Hope you like what you see.  If you have pictures of Winnipeg, and would like to share them with the rest of CLARA, please don't hesitate to send them to me.  Thanks in advance.
