We were very fortunate to have a donation of some really good "stuff", from Craig, WB6LZV.  We're selling these items as somewhat of an auction.  All proceeds go into the Club treasury (and you all know that you will be making our Treasurer, Nancy, a very happy camper).  The more money in our treasury, the more fun we have as a club!
