RAST Meeting: February 2009?
« on: January 23, 2009, 05:44:07 PM »
Dear Fellow Hams;
I am unable to find any reference to a February 2009 RAST meeting either on the RAST Homepage or on this Forum.

Can any of you wizards in the know, enlighten me?? ???

Thanks in advance.

Hi, Swen.
I note your msg reads, "Sunday, 02th January, 2009". I assume you meant to write 'February' and not "January".

Also, the 2nd of February 2009 is a Monday and not a Sunday.

Would you like to take another run at telling us all exactly what the date of the next RAST meeting is?

Thanks

Dear Swen and Kurt;

The statement you both are so sure of is,

"All RAST meeting is on the first Sunday every month."

The operand word here is, "All".

Perhaps you could tell me how many members were in attendance at *this* month's "first Sunday" meeting (i.e., 04 January 2009). It takes only one exception to render "All" not correct.
---------------------------------

I do understand that, as a general policy and barring other intervening circumstances, RAST meetings are normally held the first Sunday of the month, but this month was an exception. We had another exception earlier last year. It's these exceptions (or their absence) that I was checking on, and which make words like "all" and "every" somewhat problematic - and Kurt's statement incorrect.

The fact that we had no meeting "the first Sunday" of this month (January), combined with the absence of any advance notice on the RAST website or this forum, of a February meeting, led me to initiate this thread and question the schedule for a February meeting.

I think I now understand that the next RAST meeting will be held (at the usual location) on Sunday, 01 February, 2009.

So, "All RAST meeting is NOT on the first Sunday every month", just some months. So, best check and confirm, every month.

Dear Chris!

EVERY MONTH WILL BE THE MEETING ON THE 1st SUNDAY OF THE MONTH!!!!!


If a meeting is canceled for what ever reason it will be posted here or on the website! -- So I hope now it's clear - EACH MONTH - 1st Sunday - QSL?

Dear Swen;
As a general rule, your statement may be true. It is important to bear in mind that, it may NOT be true. This month is a case in point.

So, as I have said and done, best to check - and ask. There was nothing about a February RAST meeting, on this forum nor on the RAST website, prior to my asking (and being fed several pieces of miss-leading and false information!)

at the risk of threadjacking and suffering the wrath of CHris I would like to add that I knew there was a RAST meeting last SDunday as the Pattaya meeting is this coming Fridayand it always follows the monthly RASTmeeting in Bangkok.

PS:- CHris, I was hoping to see you at Sena place last Sunday for a beer but you were a no-show.
