2021 November Meeting (Part 2)

Body: 

Well, we had 2 responses via the poll on the site, 2 emails from members to me directly, and 2 conversations at coffee indicating interest.
That makes 6 expressions of interest. With the sudden increase in cases in North Bay, prudence prevails. So, no meeting this month.
We'll try again in January. Perhaps we can have a show and tell of what Santa brought us for being good this past year (or two).

2021 November meeting?

Body: 

Well its been a while since we got together.
Dan VE3DLL has offered the use of the Shrine Club for a meeting in November.
Needless to say the meeting will adhere to all current Covid-19 protocols.
We could also have a virtual meeting using zoom or another videoconference application.
We have to elect another board member to replace Drew, or perhaps have a general election.
Your thoughts please. I will place a poll on the website for you to vote on your preference.
The poll will be open for a week.
General comments can be left on this message.
