VE3ERX Repeater and Canoe Race

Body: 

We had our backup battery burst at the VE3ERX repeater site sometime over the weekend. I attended and cleaned up most of the acid spill today, and will have to attend tomorrow to clean further. So far I've used a 2kg box of baking soda to neutralize the acid. Somehow the repeater went off the air, and Bob VE3MF said the output power was fluctuating, so it might just be a bad cable. I will have to further troubleshoot tomorrow when I attend. I will have to spend some club money on a new backup battery.

Keeling's Service - Time adjustment.

Body: 

I apologize; the visitation starts at noon; so if we could meet at 12:45 at the latest, we can be there in plenty of time for the service.
I will be there at noon with the name tags, so anytime after that would be good.
Thanks

Keeling's Celebration of Life on Monday

Body: 

It was Keeling's wish that the club would provide an "Honour Guard" at his service Monday.
I spoke with the coordinator of the AOTS men's club, and they will be wearing their embroidered golf shirts.
I'm not too sure that callsign ball caps or radio vests are appropriate attire, so for those who wish to attend, please
let me know and I will print out a name tag with the club logo and your name and callsign.
We will be seated near the front of the congregation as a group to pay our respects.
