The RAFARS 2020 Dinner has been cancelled due to the current travel and social distancing restrictions and the uncertainty regading the situation in October.
Due to the Corvid19 situation, the RAFARS Council have decided that it may not be safe to hold a normal AGM. Therefore the Council have decided to hold a virtual Zoom AGM.
The Zoom AGM will take place on Saturday 17th October 2020 at 13.30hrs
The RAFARS Council apologises to those members who do not have internet/computer facilities and are not able to participate. Council decided that the choice was either no AGM or to have a virtual Zoom AGM.
The hotel rooms that were reserved for RAFARS members to book, have been cancelled and there will not be a Formal Dinner
The Zoom AGM meeting arrangements will operate as follows.
Within the Autumn QRV Pack there will be a form for members to complete who wish to take part.
Members can also register online by visiting the registration page via the button at the bottom of this page
An editable PDF application form is also available for download on the registration page
Applications should preferably be emailed or possibly posted back to the secretary. Those persons wishing to take part, their names, callsign and membership number will be checked and then passed on to Mr Hyde G3ZDW. He will allow the said members entrance into the Zoom AGM. A link to the Zoom meeting will be emailed to those members wishing to take part prior to the meeting.
Completed applications should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or posted to:
Reverend V A Lewis
Four Winds Cottage Broomfleet , Brough
East Yorkshire, HU15 1RJ
Members wishing to take part in the Zoom AGM, should reply to the RAFARS Secretary by 18th September 2020. Please ensure your email address is correct
Further information regarding the Zoom video conferencing software can be found on the Zoom website
Please note that use of the Zoom software to attend a virtual meeting is FREE and there is no need to create a Zoom account to attend a meeting. However, installation of the cross-platform Zoom software does make the use of the system easier.
Members who wish to attend the virtual AGM are recommended to make themselves familiar with the Zoom interface. An attendance application form will be included with the Spring edition of QRV.
RAFARS is unable to provide technical support with regard to the installation and use of the Zoom software.
