Hi everyone. I hope my letter finds you all well. I had both of my knees replaced this month. I may or may not be at the meeting this month depending on how my recovery comes along by then. I just got them done on October 17th and 19th. So far everything is going ok and I am staying at the Lenawee Medical Care Facility and will be here for a week or so until they feel I can navigate at home and in my vehicle.
Norm W8TTH and I went to the Great Lakes HamCon that was held up at the Michigan International Speedway on Oct 7th and 8th. The first day it was very well attended and the second day it was a lot slower. I would like to thank all of the club members that came up and worked the event. It was also great to see a lot of the members attend the show.
Speaking of hamfests Norm and I will also be attending the Fort Wayne Hamfest on November 18th and 19th. By then I will be able to attend the show I hope. I should be able to walk fairly well by then.
Norm is still going up to Buckley, Michigan at least one more time this year to pick up the camper. He went up there and closed it up for the winter. I won’t be able to go up until next year once my knees are all healed.
Don’t forget to go and vote for the officers this month and probably the trusties. We didn’t’ hold the election last month so they will probably get combined.
Please also don’t forget to check out the website at www.w8tqe.com and get any new information and pictures to Bob K2IBM. He is our web master and we need to support him and the club by sharing. He keeps up the website. Also, this newsletter would not be possible without Mark NU8Z. They also need support from you by sending them articles and pictures. Without these people any information about our club and upcoming events would not be readily available for all of us. Thank you all for the great job you do for our club.
Sorry, my letter isn’t very long this month, but it is late and I am still very sore. I should have thought about my letter earlier before I had my surgeries, but I had lots of things occupying my time then. If at all possible, I will try to get to this month’s meeting. That is a big IF at this point in time.
