Dover Amateur Radio Club 2022 Membership Renewals

It’s that time again ………
Greetings Everyone.

You may remember that your committee decided to make 2021 a membership fee-free year? Well, the committee also decided to discount this year’s fees by 50%, making it 

£25 for the year.

This is great value and includes all refreshments, etc. I really hope all of you will be able to renew this year, as it would be sad to see you go. To make things easier, you all have until 
Sunday 30th January to pay.
(After that date, your details will be removed from our club contact sheet).

As we are not meeting in person just yet, the best way to pay your subs would be by bank transfer (BACS). The details are as follows:

Account Name:      Dover Amateur Radio Club  
Account Number:  31650866
Sort Code: 

Please quote your callsign (name if you do not have one) as a reference. 
This is important.

If you have any problems, please email and Richard will be able to advise you.

Regarding the return to face-to-face club meetings. please note that subject to Government guidelines changing or another COVID variant, we are expecting to return to the club (face-to-face meetings) on Thursday 3rd February.

********* Postponed Until  early 2022 due to sudden rise in Covid Cases ********* 

Due to a rise of COVID-19 cases in Kent, we are going to temporarily suspend all club meetings in the River church hall ~ until after Christmas. This includes the Bob Heil Talk on the 9th December 2021 and also the Christmas seated meal on the 16th December 2021.
The reason for this is that there is now a greater risk of getting Covid. A significant number of our members do not want to potentially put their family Christmas festivities at risk and I have every sympathy for this line of thought.
What we will do, therefore, is to postpone Bob Heil’s Talk, and our Christmas meal, until early 2022 ~ when, if any members do contract Covid afterwards it will not affect their family Christmas, etc.
I hope all members understand why I have taken this decision, in consultation with others, and that I have your support.

We’ll make sure 2022 starts well for DARC 🙂
73 to all.
