August 2022 General Membership Meeting ....
When: Tuesday August 16th 2022 @ 18:30 MST
MARCA's General Membership meetings are open to Guests, Friends, Family, anyone interested in Amateur Radio, and of course all MARCA members. 
Only for this July and August, we've learned that Summer Heat typically are very low attendance for many reasons. However, we do have some successful experience holding both a Denny's "in person" and a ZOOM meeting. So, if you're out of town or "in" town & can't bear to drive in the heat, join us the meeting using ZOOM. There won't be a scheduled presentation. 
Arrive early, say 18:00 MST, order a Denny's Special; or check-into ZOOM early; There's alway an opprotunity to open a discussion topic on just about any thing related to amateur radio or just plain ol chit chat about the weather.
Please continue to check status here. The reminder email is sent to registered members & Guest; will include update status prior to August meeting.  
The Plan IS: A Joint "In Person" Meeting at Denny's AND ... Zoom
Meeting location: 
Denny's Tempe
825 S 48th Street
Tempe, Arizona 85281
Located on the South East section of University Dr and 48th Street.
