Motion to nominate Virginia Haycock as Recording Secretary was made by
Al Oxton and seconded by Tom Hensley. No other nominations were

General discussion followed about how often to meet and where. It
was felt that we would have one meeting a year in Quartzsite at either
Magic Circle or Quartzfest. Because our members tend to travel to
different locations throughout the year, it is difficult to have
meetings more often.
President Oxton will contact all known radio operators who have
expressed interest in being members of Desert Circle ARC. We
discussed a dues structure, but decided to not ask for any dues at
present. If the need for funds arises, we will contact members at
Al Oxton, President, plans to use the club call, NU7DE, on Field Day
2008 and during Nude Recreation Week in 2008. Club members agreed
that Al should use the call sign during this year.
There was no further business to discuss and the meeting was adjourned.
