As many of you know, Ron, W8RJL, and Judy, W4JJY, are boarding a plane bound for California — a permanent change of station — on June 1, 2018.
The QCWA Chapter 119 May meeting on Friday, 18 May 2018, 12:00 Noon, at Gus and George’s Spaghetti and Steak House at 4312 Virginia Beach Boulevard, will be the last local club meeting scheduled for May. Therefore, Chapter 119 is holding a grand going away party for Ron and Judy.
The meeting will be at 12:00 noon on that Friday. And to accommodate those who must work on that day, we will hold the formal part of the meeting FIRST, at 12:00 Noon, before we indulge in hams favorite activity — eating! There will be short speeches, of course, and presentations, and photos, and anything else we can cram into the time available. All the local clubs, PVRC/VADXDD, CARS, VBARC, and the Norfolk club are hereby invited. It should be a really nice turn-out. Did I mention: THERE WILL BE CAKE!
Time is very short. To cover certain logistical concerns, I MUST HAVE YOUR RSVP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! If you check into the QCWA Net on Sunday morning (I am NCS this week) I can take your ‘reservation’ at that time.
If not, please send me an e-mail saying how many are included in your reservation. If you want to make brief comments, or make a presentation, please tell me in advance. I have to give a number who will attend to Gus and George’s on Wednesday, so please don’t delay in letting me know your intentions.
Let’s make this a great affair sending Ron and Judy on their way. After some 50 years in this area, I’m sure Ron has helped you with one problem or another at some time. Let’s thank him with a great send-away.
