Chili Supper – November 8th Meeting

The November meeting brings food and voting to the forefront of BVARC meeting activity.

The eating part is the Annual Chili Supper. Cook up a crock pot of your favorite chili and bring it to the meeting to be shared by all in attendance. This is one of BVARC premier social events.

BVARC supplies the AC outlets, bowels, plastic utensils, condiments, napkins, drinks and ice.

Should you wish to bring complementary food such as:

stuffed jalapenos, desert, chopped onions, shredded cheese, TUMS, etc.

Please, let me know at: Call or text at 832-474-3713.

The BVARC Board of Directors

Elections for 2019 Offices – Call for Candidates

On November 8th, the Chili Supper meeting, we will elect replacement officers for

Vice President, Treasurer, Corresponding Secretary, a 2 Year and a 1 Year At Large Director

We need folks to step up. By nominating yourself or another member we can fill the ballot and have a decent election and a smooth transition in January to a full Board of Directors and continue with a smooth running of the club.

Step up, volunteer to be part of the core group that runs BVARC. It is fun, it is satisfying and it doesn’t take much time.

Questions? E-mail me, call me or talk to me the night of the meeting before the elections. Rick Hiller W5RH Text or call 832-474-3713. Thank you and 73.
