expenses totaled $348.  Fred-WB8UDA motioned that $400 be allocated for Field Day '18 expenses. Fred's motion was seconded by Tom-K8DMM. For computer logging of results Bill-K8VMC kindly
donated his services as he did in '17.  For publicity Bill (and Rick-K8SCI as well, I think-please
correct me if I'm in error) contacted the Sun News, Cleveland.com and Melissa Martin of the
Brunswick Post.  Rick updated Field Day information and fliers on the NCARC websites. Paul Heyse,
brother of Fred-N8AHS was able to get us published in the Medina County Gazette.  Dave-N8QAS
was again our sign man. Dave put together 4 new signs this myear to replace our older ones.
Norb-N8KJT and Bobbie along with Bobbie's son John comprised our meal team for FD '18.
Joe-N8QXC supplied radios, solar panels, batteries and other needed equipment. Fred-WB8UDA
and Joe supplied several coolers of ice.   Forgive me if I'm missing anyone's efforts here. Thanks
again to everyone in the club for their work in making Field Day 2018 a success.
   
Newsletter: Minutes continue to be published by Rick on the website.
   
Approval Of NCARC Minutes As Published For May 2018: Motion: Rick-K8SCI.
Second: Norb-N8KJT. Motion passed unanimously.
    
Sunshine: Heidi-WD8EFF has offered to cover the duties of the Sunshine Chair as long as
Mary-KD8NGC remains unable to do so due to her current state of recovery from recent falls.
Thank you Heidi for volunteering and in advance for your work as Sunshine Chair.
    
The widow of Bob Wittmuss KB8ZJH sent the NCARC a thank you card for the help provided
in selling Bob's equipment
    
Membership: Tom-K8CNN has joined the club. Tom's application was unanimously approved by
all NCARC trustees present.  Welcome to the club Tom!
    
Membership Reminder: As of July 1,'18 dues for renewal for 2018-2019 are due for all current
NCARC members. Thank you to one and all who have already paid their dues.
    
Two Meter Net: New net control operators continue to be needed as well as another volunteer
to transmit the Amateur Radio Newsline and give Dan-KB8A an alternative since he has been for
years now our only volunteer who transmits the Newsline.  (It has in the days after Thursday 6/14
been decided that the NCARC Sunday Evening Informal Net will move from 9 P.M. to 8 P.M.
beginning with the Sunday August 5, '18 net.)
       
Program, Education and Technical: Nothing new to report for any of these three categories for
the June 2018 meetings.
   
Old Business: None listed at the June 2018 meeting.
    
New Business: Rick-K8SCI motioned that the NCARC has one Trustees Meeting per quarter (rather
than the current one per month to fulfill the minimum requirement under the NCARC Bylaws).  The
once per quarter motion, after discussion, did not pass.  Tom-K8DMM motioned that we have
one combined meeting per month rather than the current structure of a Trustees Meeting
immediately followed by the Membership Meeting.  Fred-WB8UDA pointed out that to make
this change would require changes to be made to the NCARC Bylaws.  [Important Footnote: Kindly 
inform me soon, dear NCARC members if I'm getting any details of these New Business items wrong here.
TNX de Fred-N8AHS.]

Membership Meeting:
   
Open: 7:55 P.M.
   
Present: All those who were present during the NCARC June 2018 Trustees Meeting were also
present during the Membership Meeting, except for Dan and Mary Lou who left for home upon
the completion of our extended NCARC June '18 Trustees Meeting.
  
Treasurer's Report, Newsletter, Approval Of Minutes, Membership, Two Meter Net, Awards,
Program, Education, Sunshine, Field Day, and Old Business: same as under Trustees Meeting above.
   
New Business: Dan-KB8A and Mary Lou-K8MLS are considering leaving the NCARC Informal Net
at the end of 2018 due to the lack of net control operators and an additional lack of another
volunteer to transmit the Amateur Radio Newsline in place of Dan KB8A who has transmitted it
for 25+ years now.  As noted in the NCARC Trustees Meeting minutes listed above, the Net
will move from 9 P.M. to 8 P.M. effective Sunday August 5, 2018. Those of us present at the
Membership meeting discussed both the above and other items related to possible changes to
the net structure. 
It was (and remains) the general conclusion of those present.at the June '18
meetings that we would like to keep the NCARC Informal Net and we will keep working toward
that goal. Related: Bill-K8VMC noted during our discussion (and Bill has also noted during the
NCARC Informal Net) that he will be shifting the transmission of the ARRL Audio News from
Mondays at 8 P.M. to Fridays at 8 P.M. in order to make sure that all announcements made
in the ARRL Audio News will be transmitted in the most timely fashion possible.
   
Motion To Adjourn: Tom-K8DMM. Second: Rick-K8SCI.
   
Close: 8:45 P.M.
   

I respectfully submit the above minutes to the best of my ability. As noted in the text of the
June '18 NCARC Trustees Meeting, please let me know of any corrections needed to the minutes
as shown above.  Again, I wish each of you and yours a very happy, respectful and safe
Independence Day holiday on Wednesday 7/4/18.
