North East Ontario Regional Directors Report for April, 2012
First I want to remind you of the Ontario QSO party that is coming up this month on April 21 and 22. For complete details check out the Contest Club of Ontario's web site located here, http://www.va3cco.com/oqp/. VA3RAC will be operating portable from Manitoulin Island, so give a listen for them as well.
We are also coming into Hamfest season and two coming up in Ontario are the 16th Annual Iroquois Hamfest on April 7th and the Smiths Falls Fleamarket on May 12th. Further information is available in the current TCA in the Coming Events section.
Recently the Board of Directors has created a new position of "Deputy Director". The job of the Deputy Director is to assist and advise the Director, and unlike the Assistant Directors can vote at Board meetings if the Director is not there. I am hoping to fill the position of Deputy Director for North /East Ontario Region. If you are interested in further information please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will also be contacting various presidents in Eastern Ontario for their thoughts on this, so expect a phone call sometime in the future.
The Field organisation in Ontario has recently been changed from one SM to four. We are always looking for people to fill in positions under the SM in the various jobs. Please give it a thought.
Finally, Mitch, VE6OH and his group is organising a major Hamfest on the weekend of August 11th and 12th. It is shaping up to be a pretty impressive looking weekend. Could this turn into Dayton North? You may want to mark your calendar for this one.
If you have any questions or concerns please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
