President's Message

Hello Everyone,

Well spring is just around the corner, March 20th is the official first day of spring. Also, all the provinces and territories have the time change on March 11th. Oh, thank goodness that Saskatchewan does not do that. We never change.

I have been so very busy lately, that I have not even had time to put the certificate winners of the Birthday Bash Challenge on line: So I sent out 12 certificates. Thank you to everyone who took the time to contact YLs and to send me in your numbers. It was great fun. I will get the names on the website shortly.

Our 2018 Challenge is Superwomen in Amateur Radio. Let’s see how many YLs you can contact again this year. Again, you may want to keep a log as you are only able to contact the same YL only 2 times a month on the same band or mode. Just makes it a bit more challenging. Please see the rules here on the website.

The CLARA Chatter Party will take place March 13th and 17th, and again, please see the rules on the website.

Weather in this part of the country has not been too bad all things considering. Lots of strong winds that took our temperatures down to the very cold numbers, but, being a prairie girl, we survive. In other words, if you don’t have to go out into the cold, then stay home where it is nice and warm. Ok, so I’m chicken. At my age, I really don’t want to go out if I don’t have too. Besides, that nasty flu has been going around and even though I had the flu shot, why take chances.

As President of CLARA, I am so pleased that more YLs are joining our organization, and if you know of other YLs who maybe are searching for an “all female” radio group, please let them know that CLARA is alive and well, and we welcome all.

Lastly, please remember that our CHATTER PARTY will be held March 13th and March 17th. Hopefully propagation will be good so that all can participate. We allow EchoLink, and 2 Meters, as well as HF. Hopefully spring will arrive on time, and the cold and snow will be behind us. Take care one and all
