    DE Joe K5EJL:

    Paul M. Hargis, W5KA (SK), Birthday Celebration by Joe Fisher, K5EJL ARRL Technical Specialist and CLM (and self-appointed AARC Historian). It’s now become an “every year” thing: the Paul Hargis Birthday Bash. January 12, 1907, was the birth date of Paul Hargis, born right here in Austin. Like last year, let’s do it again at Waterloo Ice House, Burnet Road. And remember, 2019 is the year that we consider to be AARC’s centennial year.

    Where: Waterloo Ice House, 8600 Burnet Rd

    When: Saturday, January 12, 6:30 p.m. ‘til whenever

    As usual your club Historian will pick up the first round, so don’t be too late. Bring show-and-tell (of any kind) if you have some.
