The meeting tonight was held at the Beggar’s Pizza restaurant located at 15600 South Cicero Avenue in Oak Forest, IL. The meeting started at 6:00 PM.

There were no minutes taken as the meeting was an informal get-together of the club members who were able to attend and enjoy some pizza and beer. We consumed three large family size pizzas and it seemed the waitress was coming to the table every 15 minutes with another pitcher of beer.

We did talk about our club president, Bob K9MDO, and vice president, W9ILY, who are on a DXpedition to St. Pierre and Miquelon Islands. They have operated as FP/K9MDO, FP/W9ILY, VO1AA, VO1BZM, VO1EMO, K9MDO/VO1 and W9ILY/VO1. It seems most of the club members have worked the traveling duo.

Member Tom Palmisano, W9AEB, has made a monetary donation, in the Metro DX Club’s name, to 1A4A, the amateur radio station of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta. We are listed on their web site as a donor with our club logo. Thanks Tom.

The following members and guest attended tonight’s Pizza Fest: AI9L, Jess; AF8H, Patti; W9NJB, Jack; N9LAH, Phil; K9PY, Jerry; N9ORD, Bob; KA9ZZT, Denny; N9AKR, Bob; N9TK, Jim; K9BWQ, Frank and his XYL Dolores.

The most important matter on the club docket is FIND A PERMANENT MEETING LOCATION !
