The focus on the meeting was dealing with the current Covid-19 situation and how to keep members engaged. A few points to take away from the discussion.
ALL General Membership meetings, board meetings, and breakfasts for the month of April are CANCELED.
The board will begin meeting every other Thursday via web conference for a quick status report and to discuss the changing situation.
We are looking for ways to continue to engage members and potential members. The following ideas were discussed
- Continuing the General class instruction via the repeater or simplex
- Club participation in the Michigan QSO party
- Continuing the nightly informal check in net. Each night between 1900 and 2100 hours.
- Weekly web casts on ham related topics. First one will possibly be a work session for FT-8 or other digital modes.
As of right now the FOX HUNT for May is still ON. You can look for some potential changes to the rules and how the hunt will operate as we won't be meeting for breakfast prior to the hunt.
