The Hawke’s Bay Amateur radio Club organized a “Debby Day” on Saturday 1st March. The occasion was to meet and greet Debby Morgan ZL2DM from NZART Headquarters. It was also a chance to have a social gathering of many local hams for some fun and a BBQ provided by Rob ZL2US, President of the HBARC. Debby spoke at some length about her career in nursing and switching to be secretary of NZART and her role as secretary and ARX for our association.
She also stressed how vital it is for our membership to continue increasing. Debby led a discussion on the current finances of NZART which triggered further discussions and suggestions on future directions and initiatives for NZART.
Several local hams joined the association after her talk. Rob, ZL2US thanks Debby for her visit and very informative talk. A BBQ followed and a great time was had by all.
