Free Give Away to the first 50 members: A “Lifetime” member and former Officer of our Club. Mr. Art Fisher, age 95 has overwhelmed us with his generosity by donating all his test equipment, tube testers, radio parts, metal parts cabinets, books, and general radio related items.  We removed all of the donation from his home, to a nearby storage facility.

Art’s daughter packed everything in banana boxes, over a 100 total.

The AZARC Board was in full agreement, to adhere to Mr. Fishers wishes that his “stuff” should benefit all of our members.  So, we will have a AZARC first, “ART’S GIFT GIVE-AWAY”.  Every dues paid member in attendance upon signing in on the morning of July 29th, will be gifted one banana box (contents unknown), and one parts cabinet (contents unknown).

Here’s how we will proceed:

The Club will place 50 banana boxes and 50 parts cabinets on tables lining the walls, on both sides, of our Swap Meet indoor, air conditioned huge room.  They will be numbered 1 thru 50.  When you register, you’ll place a ticket with your name written on it and place in a jar.  At exactly 9 AM we will start drawing the names, 1 thru 50, and the first person will receive box and cabinet 1, second person #2 until we have drawn all the names.  CAVEAT: We can only handle 50 boxes and 50 cabinets, so we can only provide 50 members with the GIVE-AWAY. IF YOU SLEEP IN, YOU LOSE!

PLEASE don’t touch or try to open any of the boxes or cabinets until all the names have been called and we give you further instructions. Everyone will open there boxes/cabinets at the same time.
