The meeting will start at 6:00 pm Thursday Feb 9th and includes your meal served family style with choice of meat and drink.  If you plan to have any extras such as dessert, you will need to use cash or check, as the Log Inn doesn’t take any form of plastic. After the meal we will have a few presentations, awards, drawing for the 2016 attendance raffle and presentation of the McCutchan Award.

Time for the Annual TARS Auction

At our January 12 meeting we will again have the annual TARS auction. This is where you can find some outstanding bargains (and some neat junk).
Again the auctioneer king himself K9HVI, Little Ed will officiate the event. He always makes it a fun and exciting event.

You can bring your items to be sold or donated at the auction. Funds from donated items will go to the club. If you sell something TARS asks for a small percentage as a contribution to the club.

This is one of the few ways TARS uses to raise funds for the club each year.
So clean out that shack and pack up those spare parts, pieces and unused gear and bring it to the auction.

Eat'n Before the Meet'n

January 12th Eating Before the Meeting will be at CiCi's Pizza 101 North Green River Road, located just north of the Lloyd Expressway next to Burlington Coat Factory before the regular TARS club meeting.
Drop by for food, socializing, "story tell'n" and whatever else comes to mind.
Join the group at 5:30, check in on 146.79 if you need directions or just bored on your drive in.

Everyone is welcome to join us.

For the latest news check in to the Tri-State Emergency Net Wednesdays at 8:00 pm on the 146.790 repeater.

Check out the club web site www.w9og.net

Everyone is invited to bring a desert or snack for a pitch in celebration while watching the QLF contest.

TARS will provide drinks, plates and tableware.
Ideas might include cookies, brownies, cheeseball, snack mix or anything you would like to share.

Now you are probably asking yourself, self what does QLF mean?


From Q signal list in the Old Timers Handbook

QLF - I am sending with my left foot.

QLF? - Are you sending with your left foot?

Are you starting to get the idea?  QLF is a derogatory word kind of like LID, but we are going to have a little fun with it. 
Yes that’s right YOU will be sending CW with your left foot.
