May Meeting May-4-2013
May 4, 2013
The Bears May meeting was held May 4, 2013 at the Montpelier fire station. Those present were: Gary Roberts, Steve Nate, Jan and Eldon Kearl , John, Sarah and David Lusk, Keven and Jocelyn Nield, Bill Stock, Rick Sterling, and visitors, Jerry and Connie Hunsaker, and Dan Fillion. The minutes were read and approved. Keven handed out a survey on the proposed point system.
Keven had been in contact with the Bear Lake Classic authorities and they definitely want the BEARS club to help. They indicated a willingness to make a donation to the club for our continued support.
Nominations were opened for vice president. John Lusk was nominated by the board, Eldon moved that the nomination cease and Gary seconded the motion. A vote was taken and John was elected.
Eldon talked about the wide range of communication with only a small hand held radio and the friendships developed through ham radio involvement. He talked about the Great Utah Shake Out and told our visitors how a message is transmitted from one radio to the repeater and back to another radio. Eldon and Keven did a short IRLP demonstration for the visitors. Keven talked to KJ6LAN in California.
Keven attempted to show a power point on fox hunting but there were major issues with the projector so he shared the information that was in the power point with clarifications from Rick. Keven gave the e mail addressed for the power point he had wanted to show.
Jerry volunteered to hide the fox for the hunt and help prepare the food for a barbeque at the end.
