Some of our goals were:
- • Have fun - Accomplished
• Be safe - Accomplished
The deadline for the submission of all service hours is rapidly approaching. We need time to total all of the hours and determine which club members have earned a badge plus the amount of year stickers that we will need. Our vendor needs about 2 weeks to process our order at the minimum.
The deadline for submitting service hours is…. NOV. 17.
I will be back in Ecuador next week, Oct 25 - Nov 1. Check the spotting nets for HC1GVT on the air. I will try to get on during the CQ World Wide contest but Saturday and Sunday are travel days so the opportunities will be very limited. During the rest of the week I may have more time. May not have email this time.
