Superstition ARC The President's Corner

For December 2017 By Stephen, KB7KWK

We bring to close another year and boy did it go fast. I hope that the Board and Officers of the club have made some good changes in 2017 to benefit the club. We are always working to help our club members enjoy their club and have a good time.

I have been elected by the club members once again for President of the club. This will be my 10th year and I hope to keep improving this great club with the help of all the club Officers and Board members. We held the club elections at the November club meeting and the results are as follows: Andy Keels KD4ABB was elected as Vice President, Jeff Harris K2DFE moved into a board seat, as well as Dan DeVlieger KC7MSU who took Dale Schmidt N7QJKs position and Jeff Machesky K7ZLX moved from Vice President into a board seat. Brent Butler W7FK is now full time Secretary. All other board members from 2017 were re-elected. Dale N7QJK will still keep his duties on the IT Committee and the SuperFest Committee.

I hope to see everyone at the SuperFest on December 2nd at Mesa Community College. This of course is our club's biggest event for the year. All the donations from this event help to pay for the two repeater sites that the club has as well as needed equipment as things fail. I have heard from several people that our SuperFest is one of the best if not the best, in AZ. I hope to see you all there and I hope to make some new friends there as well. The SuperFest Chairman, along with the SuperFest Crew work all year long planning this event, usually starting in January. So as always, thank you to all of you who make our SuperFest run smooth. It takes a lot of time and effort to put on such an event. If you see the SuperFest Chairman JD KF7VOX, out there at the SuperFest, give him and the rest of the crew a big thank you. On a personal note, I would like to thank JD for saving this event. A couple of years ago I was about to cancel it due to lack of help organizing it. JD stepped in and put together a great team and our SuperFest lives on. JD will be handing the duties over to John Wolven KG7NSP in 2018. Thank you for your dedicated time and effort to your club JD.

I hope to see all of you at the 2018 club meetings. I will try my best with the help of the new Board and Officers to keep the club going in a positive and fun direction. We hope to bring a lot of good programs to the club next year.

73 and Catch You Down The Log.
