CLUB NIGHT 6th AUGUST 2021 – DUE TO COVID IT IS A VIRTUAL MEETING from 19:00 onwards

It is the eighth Club Night of 2021 and as we are still unable to meet up Face to Face due to the Coronavirus and its restrictions, so it will be another virtual club meeting using ZOOM. I will open a ZOOM session for 19:00 on Friday 6th August and the link for access is as below. We can give it a try say for 1 hour or so and if successful again we could hold further Virtual Club Meetings in the future until we can once again meet Face to Face. I think this is better than nothing.

CLUB FINANCES

** JUST A WEE PROMPT IF YOU WISH TO DONATE TO THE CLUB FINANCES **
Our New Club financial year for 2021 has started (runs from January to December) and if you would like to donate towards the clubs running costs, which is £24 a year then there are different ways to do it. Normal club night the donation is £2 or whatever you wish to donate. (Must admit the Annual Payment helps me enormously, GM4UYZ)

Remember our Club Ethos is “would you like to donate” so it is up to you, but all the money goes to help pay for club expenses throughout the year.

Payments can be via the following methods:

Pay via the Paypal Link (Large Orange DONATE Button) by clicking on this on the club website (cpsarc.com) and what you put in goes direct to a PayPal Pool that has been set up and the beauty of this that there is no additional payment to PayPal

Cash – You can put this via my door in an envelope (Remember to add your name on the envelope)

Cheque – Payable to Cockenzie & Port Seton Amateur Radio Club. Send to my home address Can be found on QRZ.com

Bank Transfer – Contact me direct via text, messenger, phone or email and I will give you the Sort Code and Account Number.

Many thanks for supporting the Radio Club throughout these difficult times it is so appreciated.

Look forward to “Seeing” you on Friday
