Mid-South Amateur Radio Association - Club Meeting Minutes July 22, 2011

The July meeting is a Cookout/ Pool Party at the Country Club Estates Swimming Pool Screen Porch. All hams (not just MARA) and their families are invited. Tony asked Randy and Ken to pass the word to Tri-State and Delta.

We will start at 6:30 pm and have burgers and all the trimmings. We will be in the screen porch rain or shine. Please let us know if you are coming so we know how much food and drinks to prepare.

The pool screen porch is at 2417 Lacosta Drive in Bartlett in the rear behind the clubhouse. We also need to know if any kids are coming so we can arrange a life guard if we need one. You can call Tony Brignole at 901 372-2738 or email Tony at abrigno@comcast.net or Linda Ware at kj4ell@arrl.net.

There are dressing rooms and showers at the pool along with a grill a kitchen with a refrigerator and a large screen room with Hunter Fans overhead for Cooling. You do not need to bring anything but if you do it is a standard size home refrigerator so it doesn’t have much room. We will have ice for drinks.


There will be no program. This is our official July meeting so we will call it to order and then adjourn. If anybody has business we will throw them in the pool.

Field Day

Field Day was great and all had a great time. The facilities were outstanding and it appears that we made a zillion contacts. Thanks to Randy Wilder and the Tri-State group for organizing and coordinating Field Day this year.
