Thank you Moncton Area ARC!
Radio Amateurs of Canada held its biennial Planning Meeting in Riverview, New Brunswick (near Moncton) on Thursday, September 12 and Friday, September 13 and it was attended by members of the entire RAC Board and Executive.
On Saturday, September 14, RAC officials then enjoyed the Moncton Area Amateur Radio Club’s annual Fleamarket. The RAC Annual General Meeting was held immediately following the Fleamarket and in the words of the MAARC it was “a huge success!” (see below).
RAC would like to thank everyone who attended the AGM in person or via Webinar. We hope to see you again next year.
