As was announced on the net this evening, the club is returning to in person meetings starting this week with the meeting on 3 June. Along with the return to meetings is a new location! We will now be meeting at Murray Fire Department Station 81 in their beautiful conference/training room! I will update the Meeting Schedule and Location page accordingly. If you are vaccinated, please feel free to not wear a mask to the meeting. If you are not vaccinated or have extenuating circumstances that involve you wishing to continue wearing a mask, please wear one and don't feel embarrassed to do so. We want everyone to be comfortable and feel safe. We will be maintaining some amount of social distancing during the meeting (no group hugs). Sorry, Ragnar, but pants at least will be required... do not wear just a Speedo.
This week's meeting is doubly important as we will be having elections for new club officers. As you (hopefully) know, our fearless leader, Dan (N7XDL) has accepted the position of Emergency Coordinator for Salt Lake County ARES and is unable to fill both positions with the care and support that they both require. Since our by laws call for new club officers every two years, and the current board has been serving for three years now (thanks to COVID-19), it is past time for us to have these elections.
At this point, I don't know if we will be supporting the Zoom sessions during the in-person meetings. I would like to continue doing so, but I need to check out the venue and determine what support there is for video conferencing from Station 81. I will be doing so this week prior to the meeting on Thursday, so watch your e-mail boxes for an update. If we can't support the Zoom sessions, we will still look at continuing to record the meetings for presentation via YouTube on the club web site.
More information will be posted as it becomes available. It will be great to see you all in person once again!
