Urgent announcement regarding the AGM and Covid

Given the rising Covid cases and the uncertainty of the Omicron variant, coupled with the Government mandating face masks on all Transport, the committee have reluctantly decided to postpone the AGM.  Along with this, there will be no further meetings at the shack or Tromode until the government specifies that face masks are no longer required anywhere,  notice will be posted on social media to confirm re-opening.  Arthur, GD3TNS, has kindly stepped up to be net controller on the Wednesday night net, to be held at 19:30 every Wednesday on GB3IM until things are back to normal.  All memberships will be extended until the AGM is held. Should you have any questions please contact any committee member or email info@iomars.im.  Stay safe.
