March For Babies 2014

LARC's three governing values are Service, Comradery, and Knowledge. Activities like the March For Babies is just one of the many ways we literally, walk the talk. As in past years, LARC was there to provide communication support during the March Of Dimes Walk For Babies.

Tuesday Breakfast Club

The Tuesday Breakfast Club is not an official club function, but most of its members are also LARC  members. We meet every Tuesday, 9:00 AM at the Brunch Box, 725 East Memorial. (Most come a few minutes early.) The food is good, and the conversation is about as diverse as you can imagine. While the men talk men talk, the women talk ...? Well, I can't really say, but I would have to assume it is very supportive of their spouses hobby. :-)

Oh, and just in case you are wondering. Yes, we would love to see you there. 

Winner of the "New Ham" Drawing

Chet wanted to have some lucky person win this copy of the Amateur Radio Handbook, but he wanted it to go to someone new to the hobby. So we held a drawing for only hams who have recently been licensed. The lucky winner was Jim, seen here with Chet. Congratulations Jim, and thank you Chet for donating this handbook.
