Since the meeting is cancelled come see us off at the Old Country Buffet on Forest Drive in Annapolis at 9 AM Saturday March 7.
73, Rick and Jennifer
With the snow continuing to fall, we're cancelling the meeting for tonight. You'll hear from Jon on Packet Radio as planned on the 19th, and we'll slip Doug's presentation to April 2nd. Stay safe out there and don't overdo the shoveling!
Brian Mary, K3HMX
The Thursday, March 5 meeting was to be our last chance to see everyone and we still plan to be there if the meeting is not cancelled due to snow. However, if the meeting is cancelled we could get together at 9 AM Saturday morning at Old Country Buffet on Forest Drive for a radio club breakfast. We leave for Ecuador very soon.

As a result of the home inspection yesterday, we have four items we have to take care of that are easy to do, take a little scheduling and don't cost a heck of a lot of money - Less than $1300.
We anticipated a couple of the items and weren't too surprised on the other two.
Field Day starts in 115 days!
Sounds like we could see some snow Thursday, which might put a damper on our meeting. Please check the website and/or your email in case the board decides to cancel the meeting. Any cancellation will be posted on my blog.

Big day today!
- 1. Had our home inspection today – waiting for the list of things the buyers want addressed. We expect a few things, but we don’t know the specific details. Should get the report maybe tomorrow or Wednesday.
I talked with our Construction Manager on Friday.
The exterior walls are up and the roof is shingled.
They are finishing up the hanging of sheet rock (or drywall if you prefer) though out the house.
On Monday or Tuesday the drywall will be inspected and once approved they can begin putting tape and "mud" on the drywall.
They have about 28-35 days left of construction left.
Our Construction Manager think our closing date will be no later than 21 April but could be a few days sooner (e.g., 15 or 16 April).
