Connecticut Rhode Island (CTRI) Contest Group


CTRI Contest Group

Dear CTRI Members:

Last month, the CTRI club resumed in-person meetings at the North Kingstown Free Library. Warm sentiments of coming together after the extended hiatus were evident, and the group was unanimous in its desire to continue regular, in-person meetings. I have taken on the responsibility of booking the meeting room as long as it continues to be available, but the online reservation system only provides a window of 90-days in advance. I will discuss optimum dates with Bill, W1WBB to schedule meetings in order to avoid prime contesting weekends as we have always done, and I will book the room when the window opens. At this point, we have the following dates confirmed. All times are 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.

Saturday, January 22, 2022
Saturday, March 12, 2022

I will also continue to send out an email blast to the membership from the web site for those who have not subscribed to the groups.io reflector. I look forward to seeing everyone again in January, and happy contesting.

Charlie, K1ECU
