Charles gave preliminary results of field day, had 100 more contacts last Field Day.  Need supporting documentation and photos.

Mobrey metric from last week went well.  The weather was cool and the participants finished early.  There were about 115 60 and 40 mile riders.

VE session: Saturday at 9:30 AM at the McPherson Public Library.

Do we want to get first aid training for Ham members.  Need to get more information on how long and when.  Contact Fire departments for more information.

Camp Hawk, we are getting a climate controlled cabinet that will set up outside the main building.  It will be larger than the current cabinet and we will hopefully have enough room to put the fusion repeater and get a local HF repeater unconnected to K-Link.
