Message from our President – Meetings Cancelled

19 Mar

Hello all, In the midst of all the happenings with the Covid-19 virus, your board has agreed to cancel all board and members meetings until further notice. This follows the Provincial and Federal edicts for group meetings. Please note, this INCLUDES THE SATURDAY BREAKFAST meetings at the Appletree. The Monday WARA net is still running, get on-the-air and check in.  The TC10k Run has been cancelled, and the status of Field Day is yet to be determined, although it may be cancelled.

We will be posting more news there as things progress. Please follow general emergency preparedness protocols. Look after your family first. Ensure you have a 14-day supply of food and medicine in place. After your family is looked after, check on elderly friends, neighbors and Yes, older amateur operators. Some of us can’t get out like we used to. If you need help, ASK! Everybody needs help sometime.

Until then, be safe, practice good hand washing routines and we will weather this pandemic. Cheers, Brent VA7BNB.
