The MORSE Group meets in the Community Room at the East County Sheriff’s Station at 7:00 pm on the first Friday of every month. Join fellow Morse code enthusiasts for code practice, guest speakers, and projects relating to Morse code.
Are you flexible? I need operators who are willing to be flexible as to positions assigned and changes due to conditions and coordination of the event (about 20 operators).
The event is the Malibu GRANFONDO cycling event. It will be on Saturday March 16th 2019 (fast turnaround) from about 8:00 AM to about 4:00 PM. It will Start/Finish at the Four Seasons hotel in Westlake Village. It will go through Thousand Oaks to Camarillo and the long race goes up to Saticoy and back – then down to Pacific Coast Highway and through Malibu and up to Agoura and finish at Thousand Oaks. There will be about 400 participants including several World Class cyclists.
CVARC has reserved the pavilion from 8 AM to 5 PM, so please plan on setting up no earlier than 8 AM. (We may want to use this venue again, so we don’t want to anger the Recreation and Parks Gods.) We’ll have pizza and drinks available around lunchtime.
Happy New Year! I’d like to again thank outgoing Board members Tim Wheeler-K6POI, Steve Gillis-KZ6H, Joe Sprissler-AI6MW and Ben Herrera-W6JWZ for their service to the club, and again welcome new Board members Brett Price-KM6VFW, Paul Van Zuyle-K6PVZ, Kat Hunley-K6VQN and Diane Wainwood-KJ6JEJ. The Board has already had it first meeting of the new year, and we’ve started planning for 2019. I think you’ll enjoy what’s to come.
The next Mini-Field Day & Picnic is scheduled for January 26, beginning at 10:00 am. ARRL’s Winter Field Day begins at 11:00. It’s at the same location as last time, Dos Vientos Community Park, 4801 Borchard Rd., in Newbury Park.
If you’re new to the hobby or the club, this is a great opportunity to check out other people’s gear, ask questions, and get on the air. Hope to see you there!
