Temporary Change for Saturday Breakfast

General News

As some of you know, Akel's Restaurant in Myrtle Beach is undergoing remodeling prior to the start of this year's tourist season. They are closed this weekend, and may be for the next few weekends.  The club has decided to hold our regular Saturday morning breakfasts at the Golden Coral Steakhouse at 868 Oak Forest Lane in Myrtle Beach (This is  the Golden Corral near the Wal-Mart off Seaboard St. (Vicinity US 501 and Seaboard St.)  Golden Corral opens at 0730 so plan on being there between 0745-0800.  They have plenty of room for us.  

Hope to see many of you there.  We will move back to Akel's when their renovation is complete.  Thanks folks!

2016 Roanoke Division ARRL Service Award

General News

The Roanoke Division ARRL Service Award was instituted in 1968 by then Roanoke Division Director Vic Clark, W4KFC. Vic intended the award to be recognition for a long history of significant and consistent contributions to Amateur Radio. The amateur selected would have, over the years, dedicated much of his or her time to Amateur Radio and the ARRL.  Nominations for the award were solicited in late 2016. 

The selection committee is comprised of past award recipients, and the administration of the award is done by the Roanoke Division Director. Out of a field of very worthy candidates, one clearly received the majority of the votes.

 

Congratulations to our 2016 Roanoke Division ARRL Service Award winner

 

Matt McGuire AF4UZ of Surfside Beach, South Carolina

  

 

The award presentation is currently planned at the 2017 RARSFEST, the 2017 Roanoke Division Convention, on Saturday, April 15, 2017 during the ARRL forum:  http://www.rars.org/rarsfest/ Please join us in congratulating our 2016 Roanoke Division ARRL Service Award winner!
