8. AND FINALLY.
I have taken over the publicity officer and CCARC NEWS editor roles, assisted by Keith VK2HKM.
I aim to keep up to the high standard set by the outgoing Publicity Officer Ed VK2JI, and thank him for his assistance & wish him all the best for the future.
I will rely on input from you other members, so if you are doing anything or know of anything newsworthy, please let me know so that I can let the whole club know, either by including in a newsletter, broadcast, or emailing direct.
For the few of you (HINT HINT) that submit items for the news letter, please email any news items direct to me vk2dls @ ozemail.com.au, as the redirection of news-editor @ ccarc.org.au has not yet taken place.
