      ANYONE is welcome, and encouraged to attend our meetings as you do NOT need to be a radio amateur to participate. Also, we will not bore you with meeting minutes or other business drudgery as these meetings are for you! The primary purpose of these meetings is to get together with our fellow amateurs, friends and families in order to enjoy conversation and snacks (even though the coffee is horrible - just joking Ed!). There are usually monthly presentations covering various topics including everything from Amateur radio to star gazing and automated pie making machinery.
