There were concerns that no one would show up at the November breakfast since it occurred just 2 days after Thanksgiving. Were we wrong!
We had 28 at the breakfast and it was a nice to see a full room. We had Dennis Matzen, KA6FUB, wife Michel visit us from Jacksonville, Oregon which will soon be a part of the 51st State of Jackson. A little further up north we had Kurt Hallmeyer, KK7WK (formerly KC6SNW) visit us from Tualatin, Oregon. Both Dennis and Kurt were instrumental in maintaining the repeater system 10 plus years ago when they lived in Contra Costa. We also had Karina Tabone, KG6FQA, her husband Matthew and daughter Mary visiting from Bremerton, Washington. Karina was the brains behind the website rebuild earlier this year. We also had her twin brother, Joe, KG6FQC visiting from Minden, Nevada…it was a full house.
The Contra Costa Repeater Association’s November 30, 2015 Roster has been posted. In it you will find our 3 newest members. KF6AKU, Doug Slusher from Larkspur. He also is the Trustee and Director of the Marin Amateur Radio Society repeaters on 146.70 and 147.33 MHz in Marin County. KK6IOG, Rick Wesson from Richmond joined us and is farming in Richmond!!!
