As many of you are already aware, the May meeting will be our last one at the current location. NOVEC, who had been kind enough to lend us their conference room, needs to reclaim that space for use as a computer training lab. I was able to reserve the Community Room at the Manassas Central Library for our June and July meetings. It’s located at 8601 Mathis Avenue, not too far from NOVEC. Meeting time will be 7-8:30 pm based on available reservation slots.
The library is a good short term fix, but for a variety of reasons won’t work long term. Ray and I are busy knocking on doors of Prince William County public conference rooms, schools, churches, and a number of other organizations in search of a new meeting place.
If you have any suggestions, please email us. We’ll keep you posted on our progress.
Polos? … Polos? … What happened to the polos? Unfortunately, the vendor let us down. The first order arrived two weeks ago, and they were clearly not of the correct embroidery color and had some typos. I sent the entire shipment back and am working with the vendor (same one who does polos for the ARRL online store) to correct the problems.
With both the Manassas Hamfest and Field Day, June is shaping up to be a busy month. We still have some slots open on the assignment roster (on the Google drive), so please help in these areas if you can. Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
Update: for its August 2017 and September 2017 meetings, the OVH has reserved and expects to use conference rooms (Room 202 for August 21, 2017 and Room 107 for September 18, 2017) at the McCoart Center Developmental Sciences Building, Prince William, Virginia. More details later. [August and September events on the club calendar have been updated with the new venue and address]
