On behalf of myself and the SBARC Board of Directors, I would like to wish all our members a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Last year at this time we all thought that the dreaded virus would be behind us by the time Christmas 2021 rolled around. I guess not!
In a few days, we’ll be entering the third year of pandemic pandemonium. We’re not going to let it stop us though, and we are going to try to resume some sense of normalcy in the coming year.
Last year I wrote that I had hoped we would celebrate our 101st year as a club. It didn’t happen mostly because of in person committee meetings and difficulties planning a dinner given the restrictions in place. We can still make up for it next year and celebrate out 102nd year.
We plan to resume in-person monthly club meetings next year. We may do it on January 21st, however there has been some behind the scenes talk about having a co-club meeting with an amateur radio club in Arizona. That would require us to do a Zoom meeting. We’ll post something when we know more.
Once again, you all have our best wishes for this holiday season and the coming year. One way or another, we’ll see you all next year at the January 21st club meeting.
