The members of the community have sat down and are contemplating an Amateur Radio ReUnion Day (ARRD) to be held sometime in December 2008 in Port Dickson. The brain child of 9M2PD who misses the camaraderie and friendship that was evident during the Annual General Meetings in the past.
So let all support the event regardless of our affiliation and regardless of our personal feelings and lets all try (the key word is 'try') to forgive what happened in the past . At the inaugural meeting it was decided that the respective heads of the organisations and clubs be responsible for collecting the amount to be paid and the respective heads would be channelling the monies collected to the Organising Chair.
The tag line for the event is "Amateur Radio Reunion Day (ARRD) Celebrating 80 years of Amateur Radio in Malaysia" (which incidentally for the correct minded amongst us is Malaya and Singapore). So - lets give it a go, make a date and see you there.
The event is tagged as 'A REUNION TO REMEMBER' and will be held at Port Dickson, (actual venue will be announced) on (tentatively 13th and 14th December 2008. The Reunion Day is planned as such to be a place for all hamsters (SWL's included) to meet up and celebrate 80 years of doing it on air.
