Preparations for Holiday Brunch are Underway


The date of our event is Sunday December 9, 2018.

The time of our event is 11 a.m.

The location of our event is T J Rockwell’s Restaurant at 897 West Grantham Road in Mechanicsburg, PA.  This location is next-door to the Ashcombe Garden Center

The photo to the upper-right has been updated to show the main entrance to T J Rockwell’s in Mechanicsburg.  

I am delighted to report that a Duo of Volunteers stepped forward and will provide a wealth of creative flare to this core element of our Brunch.  I will recognize this duo by name if I first request and obtain their permission.  

I am equally pleased to report that Pete Matangos and I struck a deal that will place several of the fine products he makes and sells at Matangos Candies in Harrisburg into the Door Prize pool.  Assorted Chocolates in a 1 lb. box and his iconic Venetian Mints in a 1 lb. box.  I need to perform some Quality Assurance Testing prior to the brunch.  Not because there is any concern with the quality or consistency of Matangos’ fine chocolates.  Instead, the reason for this testing is so that I can savor the true meaning of Quality and Consistency.  If any candy remains unopened after this testing it will be offered as a Door Prize.

Valli Hoski will want to know the head-count of those CARC Members, Friends, and Guests who will attend the brunch.  You could take this cue and send me your intentions which I will tally and share with Valli.

The Story Behind Our Wooden Nickel TUIT


This story begins with my wife, who has a long list of household chores that I am expected to complete in order to qualify for prepared meals, laundry services, and companionship.

Many times I am guilty of responding to her chore requests by saying
“I will do that chore as soon as I get a Round TUIT.”

Darling Wife made sure that I would have whatever it takes to get the jobs done.  She outfitted me with a lifetime supply of Round TUITs.  A fresh shipment of 500 Round TUITs arrived this week.

I have so many Round TUITs that I would like to share them with my Ham Radio friends and anyone else whose interest in Ham Radio is developing.  If you would like to have your own Round TUIT please attend one of our CARC Meetings and let me know.
