Committee Reports

Education: Bill Hinley (K4WRG)

No changes - Oct 2nd at 7pm at Stonewall. Get the book Now You're Talking 4th Ed.

Ham Fest: Jack McDermott (N4YIC)

Ham Fest was not a great money maker this year. Dropped about $2K this year over last. Discussion of increasing the entrance fee to six dollars. Cannot say that we would increase the attendance, so we need some other way to increase the revenue stream on next years ham fest. Six and seven dollars seems to be the norm for admittance fees. Motion to increase the fee on the gate. Tailgate would stay at $5 and the commercial tables will stay at $30. Motion carried. Jack's wife is doing better. The documentation for next year's fest is with Mary-Lu for passing to Bill South (N4WJN) to put on the web site. Need to modify our liability to exclude the RV area.
