PARC NEWS 

NEXT PARC Meeting is AUG 8th   same day the UTAH convention opens,   Program for this meeting will be a second attempt at digital modes,   things didn't work out too well at the last meeting, so Digital  and I'm sure some other craziness, will ensue    10-4

Someone thought we should cancel our meeting because of Utah,  we decided we will still have a meeting,

it looks like Utah has a BIG line up of speakers on lots of topics.

NOW TO BE Honest,  
Unless you plan to get  a hotel, and spend two days,  I advise
going for one day, SATURDAY,,   get there when it opens, the FLEA
market is ONLY on Saturday, there will be lots of forums
get a lunch and hear Bob Heil 's  presentation.

this is not Dayton
one day should be plenty for 99% of us.

heads up, they open on Thursday,  ----   THINKING,,, 
Thursday in Utah , OH MY,  would that be boring ,??  
Come to the
PARC meeting instead .........................................
