HAY! Tom, way to go, and so fast too.
It was only four days ago that the need was presented to the HARC members. Now we have a projector for the tech class and a fund started for the purchase of a brand new one. The Education Committee is thankful to the anonymous person for the lead passed on to Tom, to Tom for locating and securing it, to Chuck for a lead on another loaner, to Jim and Megan for guiding the process and teaching the class, and to those who have already contributed to the education equipment fund.
This club sure makes being a committee "chair" easy.
(Almost keeping up with Dave, WA8RSA, who gets things totally freeeeeeee. HI HI)

Subject: [HARC] This projector thing...
Looks like we have a small lease on life here.
Thanks to a tip from a person, (I cannot remember who!) , a 700
Lumen InFocus projector was located at the GRARA swap today, for the
price of $ 50.00
OK, it's not a 3,000 lumen blaster, but the bulb still lights up, so we
have something to help us though the near future.
Also, if anyone hears Ernie, W8EL on the repeater, please thank him
for the many times he loaned the club his personal projector. We owe
Ernie some 80 hours of projector bulb life!
The club will still need a modern day projector in the future, and I
understand that there is already $ 100 donated, in a match mode, to
Phil, K8PVH, towards a new projector.
Tom, "Why did I ever volunteer for this Swap Thing?", Bosscher K8TB
p.s., I am embarrassed that I cannot remember who pointed me to this
projector. Despite my memory loss, a huge thank you to you for finding
this and taking the time to point it out to me.
