Superstition ARC Presidents Corner For 2021


For April 2021 By Steve, KB7KWK

WOW! Is it April already? Where does the time go?

I hope all of you are doing okay. It looks like the Covid-19 pandemic may finally be coming to an end. We may soon be able to meet in person again for the club meetings and I hope that is the case. I do think it's much better to meet face-to-face at club meetings rather than over the computer, although that seems to work just fine and we tend to have a average of around 50 people on those Zoom meetings. The data shows that more of you are attending the club Zoom meetings than when we used to have regular in-person club meetings.
If the City of Mesa ever lets us back into the building, I hope to see all of you at the meetings there. I will be taking a survey at that time to see if you, the club members, would rather keep having Zoom meetings instead of meeting in person. I don't mean every meeting, I was thinking maybe we would meet in person six times a year and Zoom the other six and I will leave it up to club members when that time comes. I think the Board of Directors will be trying to do the same thing.

One thing is for sure the club Picnic is coming up at the end of this month and I am sure we will have a lot of people meeting in person there. We have reserved the same camp site that we had for Winter Field Day at Usery Mountain Park and members can camp overnight. The club reserved the spot for Friday, April 23rd and Saturday the 24th and we will need to be out of the site on Sunday morning before 11:00 am. We had a great time hanging out and telling stories, whether true or not. Come on out and hang with your fellow club members. We will still practice social distancing and all the other safety precautions. With the Governor now lifting a lot of the bans, we can now gather in greater numbers but we still want to be safe. We are outdoors so it does make things a lot better and I hope to see all of you there.

73 For Now
Your 2021 Club President
