General Meeting Postponement



General Meeting Postponed

Good snowy Valentine's Day!!!!!

Due to the snowing weather conditions we ( okay the head honcho) thought it best to postpone the general meeting until Thursday February 21, 2019, same time of 7 pm with the Tech Talk to follow right afterwards.
We ( okay me) ask that if you don't have to drive please don't. We ( okay all of us) would like to see you again as we like you :) Thank you for your understanding

Also due to weather i (Lanaya) have postponed taking any payments until the 21st of February as well. unless you want to e-transfer me. you can message/send money to me at lklettke55@gmail.com. otherwise i will wait and Kevin can collect your payments then. :)
thank you for your understanding :)

UPDATE TO MEETING POSTPONEMENT

Instead of a meeting on February 21 there will be an informal net tonight on the VIU repeater. (443.000)At 7 PM tonight.... It links to the Parksville repeater ( 147.080) and the Ladysmith Repeater ( 442.450) among others to give maximum spread without tying up the Island Trunk.
And this is NOT a NARA net, but a just snowstorm check in net for anyone interested
We hope to hear from you !!!
