The new Annual Award is now on the website: sure hope we get more girls this time trying for this pretty award.
Thanks to Marsha N8FE who came up with this idea. It is a great one. So from now on, the following will apply to all Certificates. (except for Continuous Membership).
1. IRLP QSO's will count
2. If you work a YL for the Flower Certificate (yearly), you may also count it towards the other certificates according the the rules with those other certificates.
3. If sometimes you can hit another state on VHF/UHF, even 2M simplex. Guess what that will count as well. Just make sure that all contacts are listed in your logs.
I think this is a great idea to help YL's work for more certificates. Again, thank you Marsha.

Would all of you YL's who are doing a Quilt Square for the CLARA Quilt please do me 1 favour.
Please write a brief Bio about you, and the hobby of Amateur Radio. Why did you get into the hobby, and why is it important to you. One of our contributors of squares Jeanine VA7QD said that if we take pictures of each square contributed, and the brief bio of each YL, and then take pictures of the finished quilt(s) we could sell them at the convention and everyone would have a keepsake of the quilts and have a bit of knowledge about who did it.
Even if they didn’t do the square personally I think it is a brilliant idea, so please send the bios via email is fine, that way I just copy and paste, or just add it to the square when you send it to me in the mail. Happy New Year to you all, may 2017 be wonderful.
Our girls in the United States, you send your squares directly to Margaret AE7MB, so please take a picture of your square and send your bio to me so that we can include it, and maybe with some luck it will be ready for the Convention. Thanks so much. If you don't have access to the computer, then hopefully you know someone who would be willing to send the picture to me.

On this website you can learn about the organization, acknowledge our fore-mothers, purchase items to show your pride and connection, find out the latest information about contests and special events, and stay updated on happenings with our members.
Many thanks to the past officers for all their hard work and welcome to all the new officers that have now stepped up to the plate.
