Just a reminder that the [Southeastern MA ARA] tailgate will be [on September 10, 2006]. It’s an informal affair and the best of all there is no admission fee! Restroom facilities and plenty of tailgate space is available on a first come, first served basis. Thanks to the ARRL we will be offering a raffle drawing for two very popular ARRL publications:
* The 2006 ARRL Handbook valued at $39.95
* The 2006 ARRL Antenna Handbook valued at $44.95
Thank you ARRL!
The club is located on 54 Donald St. in South Dartmouth, MA For directions, visit http://tinyurl.com/ghgzg. Additional talk-in help will be available on 147.000/+600/PL67.
The start time is also informal… come anytime Sunday morning. We expect to have the club and restroom facilities open by 8AM and we’ll hold the raffle at noon. At this time I can’t vouch for the availability of refreshments, but there are several drive thrus on the way in or very near by. More news on that as the date nears.
We continue to be grateful if you promote the event at your local meetings, nets, web sites and newletters. Our club is over 300 strong and we openly welcome visitors at any time. Our regular club meetings are the first Thursday of the month at 7PM. We also hold a variety of daily and weekly nets that you can find schedules for on our web site at http://www.semara.org. Please mark your calendars now.
Attention SEMARA members: I still need a few bodies to help with parking and cleanup. There is not much to do during te event except buy and sell, but your help even for just a few minutes would be highly valued. We also need a few people to rotate the talk-in duties on 147.000. Please contact me for arrangements.
We would also appreciate that if you have items to discard that you make arrangements to take these items back with you. We will not be able to accomodate disposals of heavy iron, monitors or any type of hardware. The trash receptacles on the premise are for household rubbish. We appreciate your help in managing this.
Please direct all inquiries to Tim Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks & 73,
