SARTS Meeting Aug 2017

President calls the meeting to order. There was going to be an auction of an SK member’s ham items. All proceeds will go to the family.

There were several visitors. Keifer, James VU2ARL, and Shi. Each of them gave an introduction of himself, accompanied by an interesting reason for their visit.

Since there were 101 items on auction, we wasted no time in getting it underway as soon as the official matters were out of the way.

James was well suited for the job as auctioneer, thanks to his wit and good knowledge of ham gear.

  Happy bidders.

More happy bidders. Thanks to the organizers, we were able to cover all 101 items before 2145hrs.

We had a great time. See you next meeting!
