[Meeting date: 01/12/19.  Location: Loflin's Restaurant, Thomasville, NC.]

Introduction: Anthony introduced the new board and expressed his desire to expand the clubs interests and involve more people doing and learning about different facets of amateur radio.

Treasury report was made. Winter Field Day 2019 will be on January 26-27 from 2pm-2pm. The club will be operating from the caboose, hopefully, for the entire 24 hours.

NC QSO Party: We will return to Hanging Rock State Park again. 3 cabins and the amount of food last year were excessive for the attendance. We may be able to get by with a single cabin, but with enough firm commitments we could reserve 2. Last year we broke from the standing practice of splitting the bill evenly between those that stayed overnight to simply taking donations. The treasury took a hit on account of it and it may not be a sustainable practice. More discussion will have to be had before the event on February 23-24. We will be breaking out of the phone category that we have won for many years to add digital communications.

Repeater: We are waiting on the final call that the roof repairs are complete. Also, recent weather has been uncooperative to climbing anyway.

Club net: We are in constant need of net controllers. If you are interested in any capacity, contact John KF4QDF.

Website: Still down, but being reactivated during net times. Talk was had to move to a third party host, possibly using the new ".rad" domain.

K9 SAR Team: Anthony and Bill have essentially finished outfitting the truck and trailer and will be moving towards teaching and preparing more of the members for a license test session.

If you weren't at the meeting look to your mailbox for a survey to be delivered soon. It is to take inventory of what our club already participates in and what we would like to learn more about.

In attendance were: NC4WD, W4DAE, N4AGL, K4JO, WB2RFK, KJ4AX, K4TNC, KF4NEF, K4KKT, KK4VCH, K4EBF, KW4SM
