I would say Happy Spring but every time I think it is spring, here comes the cold weather again!

Since the March meeting cancelled due to weather, April will be the first meeting that Byron, AK4XR, will run as President of the club.

Good to hear club members on the air for the Virginia QSO Party, please remember to turn in your logs and fill in OVH for your club!

Congratulations to John, KG4NXT, and Don, WA2SWX, for putting together a great table representing the OVH at the Maker Faire that was held on the George Mason University campus.

Good to see our club represented at the Vienna Winterfest, great job by Terry, KC4DV, and crew for staffing a table and handing out flyers.  The picture below is from this hamfest, Byron, AK4XR & Tony, KK4YZK and if you look near the middle of picture in the next row is Sandy, KM4JUS, talking to one of the vendors!

Sending best wishes to Butch, W4HJL, and Steve, KB4OF, as they both continue to recover from recent hospital stays.
