President and Editor Remarks

Just a few remarks under a couple hats.


First as editor.  Bonnie WB2ALQ and I have been editing the newsletter now for almost 10 years!  It is now time for us to relinquish the task and Lance KC2MTO has volunteered to assume the editorial duties starting in January 2018. Thanks to Lance and all who have contributed to the newsletter for the past 10 years.


This brings me to my presidential hat.  We will be nominating officers for 2018 in November.  Lance KC2MTO has also volunteered to act as nominating committee.  Again, contact Lance or any officer or trustee to be considered.

These are important tasks – please volunteer!! 


Happy Birthday Greetings go out to: Mike KB2RHI and Ray KC2IYC.

Upcoming BCRC Events

BCRC Officer Nominations are coming up in November.  At the regular business meeting we will be nominating officers for 2018.  These will be your leaders next year.  Please think about who you would like to nominate, or better yet please consider running for one of the offices.  It’s always invigorating to have new leaders, fresh ideas. 



Join us for some pizza on Saturday November 11th from 12:30 until 2PM!  Let Lance KC2MTO know before November 10th if you plan to attend so he can estimate the total number of places to reserve.


Angelo's Pizzeria Ristorante,  200 Larchmont Blvd., Mt. Laurel 

(At the corner of Larchmont Blvd. and Hainesport-Mt. Laurel Rd., adjoining Wawa.)        



Take Larchmont Blvd. from Route 38 toward Medford.

Follow Larchmont Blvd about one mile until just before it "T's" into Hainesport-Mt Laurel Rd.

See the Wawa to the right and Angelo's right next to it.

Holiday Dinner

It’s not too early to mark your calendar for our annual Holiday Dinner.  This year’s date is December 12th, just one day after the December regular monthly meeting.  Festivities commence at 6:00 PM in the Medford Leas Holly Room with greetings and conversation.  Don’t forget to BYOB!  Dinner will be served at 6:45 PM.  Bring your form with payment to the November meeting or mail it to Gene N2WFN.  The deadline is December 4th, and we’re sure you won’t want to miss this year’s gala affair!
