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.
