ED FELTER: "I happily return to my usual role of supporter, booster, and fan of all things SDSSARC."


Tombstones are famous for their dates and one-liners.  Think about the date and it’s format, it has a beginning date, a dash  and an ending date.

Well there is no tombstone involved but for me, there is a beginning and an ending with a fine dash in between.  I volunteered to assume the presidency of SDSSARC in August, 2010.  Today, I am announcing that I will not run again for re-election to the office of the president of the club.  I gave my decision to the Board of Directors last month in official capacity and format.  My end as president will be December 31, 2014.

That “dash” between the dates represents many of my personal best moments in amateur radio.  We, together, have seen some fabulous events, growth, and fellowship times in between the dates.  We celebrated our 10th Anniversary as a club, we re-ignited Field Day, began a special summer event called PICNIC, refined the nets through Participation Points, determined to get 501(c)(3) Non-Profit status for the club and won (thanks Randy KJ6JAJ!), with the help of Alex WB6DTR, Chuck WD6APP, and John K6RLV put a terrific 2 meter repeater on Mt. Otay (thanks SANDRA!), saw membership grow from under 50 paid members to 115 paid members.  Our monthly meetings have been among the best any club could offer with regard to presentations and speakers (thanks Joe N6SIX!).  Many times we have filled the old Ranch House!  We have just gotten State of CA permission to do lotteries, so bring money!!  We have a long list of donated radio equipment and antennas that will be for club use in activities.  The treasury has never been stronger.

This is the short list of all the fun, the support, the friendships, the laughs, and did I say fun, that we have had together.  You have given me your support and this is OUR doing not MINE.  Collectively, we are San Diego Six Shooters ARC, a proud, growing, caring club.

So the notes will read August 16, 2010 dash December 31, 2014.  Beginnings and endings are important and necessary, but the dash is what we make of both the beginning and the ending.  Some, including me, didn’t know if we would make it.  The DASH of our collective work, activities, involvements and plans as SDSSARC says that the beginning was good and this ending is meaningful.  Thanks to the Board of Directors for your incredible support.  Thanks to all the membership for your commitment to excellence in this club.  I happily return to my usual role of supporter, booster, and fan of all things SDSSARC.

When you are called, I hope you will say “Yes” to giving your support to a nomination for position.  Keep the club going in the right direction!

See you on the 20th of October, Monday night at the Ranch House Restaurant in Santee at 7:00 p.m. Howard, KY6LA, will be giving a fine presentation on “How to Have A Quiet Station” through the use of proper grounding techniques. Excellent presentation, you won’t want to miss it.  In addition we will complete and make official the ballot for the election of President and Secretary in November meeting.

73 to all,
