[Recruitment] Sub Committee


New member
Today the Recruitment sub Committee meet at Jaycar to discus the possibility of having a BBQ to aid in promoting and recruitment for the club. The manager and staff of Jaycar were very helpful and we were able to secure a firm positive response but they will need a specific date.
We will be asking the council about any requirements they might have even though it will be held on a walkway in the private car park in front of Jaycar. The suggested day and time is a Saturday between 09:00-12:30 one weekend in June or July.
Our main goal is to promote the club and the activities of amateur radio, please find bellow a list of things that we are thinking of and or need help with, this is an open discussion, if you can help or have something to add please do so and speak up.
