    At the General Meeting on October 19, 2017 in accordance with the existing constitution and by-laws, the 51 members in attendance voted to modify the constitution and by-laws to the new ones posted here (members-only link). There were no votes in opposition.

    These rule changes are necessary in order for TBARC to comply with the rules defining a 501(c)(3) organization by the IRS.

    The new constitution and by-laws come into effect on November 1, 2017.

    Thanks to Brian AK7F and Walt NJ8G for their hard work to get these changes implemented.

    We recently learned of the death of Ralph Barr, W0DNO. He was the first president of TBARC in its current form. At one time he was simultaneously president of TBARC, CARL, West Valley and QCWA.

    Ralph's memorial service will be held at All Saints Lutheran Church, 15649 N 7th Street, Phoenix on October 24th at 2:00pm. Interment will be at Christ the King Lutheran Church in New Brighton, Minnesota. Memorials may be made to the University of Minnesota Institute of Technology or Hospice of the Valley.

    Our condolences go out to his family.

    It's the biggest news we've had in a long time: we're moving! Thanks to a huge effort on the part of our president, Gary Duffield WK7B, we have confirmed a new location to hold our general meetings. We'll be having it at Northern Arizona University!

    No, we aren't moving to Flagstaff. We'll be at the NAU North Phoenix Campus (also known as the North Valley Campus), located at 15451 North 28th Avenue in Phoenix. This at the northwest corner of Greenway Road and I-17. We didn't want the quality of venue to go down in the move, and Gary found a room with perhaps even more amenities.

    Meeting times will be the same: the third Thursday of the month from 7:00 pm on.


    Come by and check it out for yourself at the next general meeting! As of today, we're in room 147 - but check the club website before the meeting just to make sure.
