Old Business:

VA3GUN received $120.00 donation from Clayton Schneider for helping out with the Dog Sled races.


Canwarn Training scheduled for Tuesday, May 19 @ 1900 at the Best Western.


Scott installed the link radios at Sioux Narrows and Blackhawk Lake for the Kenora Club.  Blackhawk can now be used for up to 50 miles away, so that Fort Frances radio, which is a stand alone site, does not need to be linked into the Pine Tree System.  He will be going back to Sioux Narrows when he is in the area to adjust the audio level.


Jim, VE3JLN, is still awaiting word on renewing his Volunteer Examiner Permit.


Environment Canada will not be installing a Weather Radio in Dryden as we are not on their priority list.  They suggested we go the political route.  The town has thrown the ball back into our lap so Bob, VA3GUN, will contact Greg Rickford, MP for Kenora, to see how we proceed from here.



New Business:


The Club Barbeque is scheduled for Saturday, June 20, at Neils, VE3VNM. 

 M.S. Neil, VE3VNMBob, VA3GUN, the meeting adjourn.  Carried.
