FWRC holds first indoor meeting of pandemic

The October Fort Wayne Radio Club regular meeting was held on Thursday 15 October, 2020. And, it was held indoors!  Yes, indoors at the Allen County Public Library (ACPL) in downtown Ft. Wayne to the delight of those who attended. We had a regular business meeting which included determining club officers and Board members for the 2021 club year.  Minutes from the meeting will be published shortly.

We have also obtained use of the ACPL venue for the months of November and December, and hope to be able to continue using it in 2021 for the foreseeable future until we can find another meeting location, perhaps back at the Good Shepherd United Methodist Church should they decide to open their doors to outside groups again.

The facilities at the ACPL are outstanding as you can see from the photo of the October meeting above. We have the use of meeting rooms A & B which can accommodate up to 126 people in a Corona virus-compliant environment.  The picture depicts just one half of the space that Rooms A & B provide for a meeting space.

The October meeting included thirteen attendees. We hope to see many more for the November meeting.

Club President Carole Burke is working on a special speaker to address the November attendees on the details of a unique communication system that functioned quite well in the days prior to the invention of wireless.  She is being coy about the exact details but is sure that everyone will enjoy the presentation.

The November meeting will occur on Tuesday, 17 November, 2020 and will start promptly at 7:00 pm, so jot this date down in your calendar.  Remember, you can park in the garage beneath the library. And if you hold an ACPL library card the parking is free. Otherwise they charge $1.00 per hour. (It’s easy to obtain a library card if you are a resident of Allen County).
