President's Message

Well, this message is just a couple of days early, but really must let everyone know that I am your new President.  I thought about it long and hard, and realized that CLARA is such a wonderful family of amateur radio operators, and we are known world-wide.  So here I am, and my bio is on the Executive Page.

Upcoming is the Guides on the Air Feb. 20/21st.  

Other than that please remember that the CLARA Contest 2016 will be in March and you can find the rules on the main menu under QSO & Contests - third item down.  We hope that the propagation will be better than it has been lately.

Thank you everyone for sending in your dues  For those of you who may have forgotten, this is just a reminder, I know Heather would be pleased to get more members.

The next thing I would like to announce is that CLARA will be 50 years young in 2017.  We are hoping to have a CLARA 50th Birthday Bash, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  It would be July or August of 2017, with date to be announced when we have it finalized.  We are only in the planning stage of course, but I would really like to know if our members and non-members would even consider coming.

So please if you think this would be something that you would attend, would you please email me a note saying that you are interested, so that we can plan accordingly.  Your input would be greatly appreciate. My email is at the end of this message.

33, 88,73 as the case may be




We're having a party:  please go to the CLARA's 50th Birthday Bash page for more information.
