2015 HAM OF THE YEAR
Mike Smith - KK4KHS
The Alford Memorial Radio Club Ham of the Year award was presented to
Mike Smith, KK4KHS, at the December Christmas Party. Mike's
dedication to the club and his willingness to step up and take on any
task, most of the time without even being asked, is what sets him apart
from his peers. Mike is always there, right in the middle, helping
out at all club functions and is a great asset to the Alford Memorial
Radio Club. Congratulations Mike for an award well deserved!

2015 Christmas Party
December 10, 2015
This year's Christmas Party will again be in the fellowship hall at the Annistown Road Baptist Church at 7:00PM.
We will be using the same caterer as we did last year. From all reports the food and service was excellent.
This year we will be asking for $10.00 from each individual over the age of 16. Those 16 or younger still eat for free.
This is being done to help defray costs to the club and to help cut down on the amount of food that has been left over the past couple of years.
All reservations must be made by midnight on November 29th.
The reservation window has closed. Contact Steve, N4TTY, for further information.

Stone Mountain Hamfest 2015
The HamFest has come and gone for this year!
While not a roaring success due to the weather, it was never the less a success due largely to
our volunteers that put in a huge effort to make it a success and to the folks that braved
the weather and came out anyway. A huge THANK YOU to each an everyone of you!
See you next year on November 5th & 6th, 2016, for our 44th annual HamFest.
AMRC MEETING TIME CHANGE
By popular demand the meeting time for all future Alford Memorial Radio Club meetings will be at 7:00PM.
That is 30 minutes earlier than past meetings so be sure to adjust your 'clocks' and don't be late!
Due to the overwhelming number of unsolicited subscriptions that some SPAMMERS have been able to send out to individuals
that have no interest in belonging to our email list, it has been decided to discontinue the TOTR-Email Reflector.
Now that we have a FaceBook presence and the Yahoo group, use of
Reflector has been very minimal since it was placed back in service
several months ago. If you were subscribed to the Reflector you should
have received one last email from the Reflector letting you know that
the service was being discontinued.
Please join our FaceBook page or join our Yahoo group to stay informed of what's going on with the AMRC.
Field Day June 27 & 28, 2015 at Stone Mountain Park
Field Day 2015 at Stone Mountain Park has come and gone, and by all accounts it was a BIG success.
Mark your calendars now for next year's event to be held June 25 & 26, 2016.
