Giving away a stack of QST Magazines

Marty Meyers
 

I have a stack of QST Magazines from early 2012 through 2016 that I am looking to give away (free). Please contact me by email at mrmeyers(at)satx(dot)rr(dot)com. You would need to pick these up from the Helotes area. Depending on distance I may be willing to deliver to a handicapped ham. This would need to be within a reasonable distance from my house though.

A New Experience

J C Smith
 

Recently I was contacted by a prospective customer. I gather he is a retired owner of a very successful construction business and his wife is an executive with USAA. He needed a dog walker and was told to contact us by the "Head" dog walked in this area. She lives near the I-35 and SR 1604 area and wasn't willing to travel to The Dominion. We set up a meeting day and time. He ask for my name and address as it appeared on my drivers license. He had to contact their security department and authorize my entry to the community.

If you are not familiar with the San Antonio area, the "old money" and moderately wealthy folks live in the Heights area not far from Ft Sam. The extremely wealthy, including most of the Spurs, live in The Dominion.

Cathy was off that day so she came along to make sure I behaved in such a high class neighborhood. About 30 minutes before the appointment time I drove up to the gate identified myself and showed the guard (a Major) my drivers license. He verified I was on the list but told me I couldn't enter. I did a double take and ask if he didn't acknowledge I was on the approved entry list. He said yes, but I couldn't enter. Now I'm perplexed (well beyond confused). My question was WHY. He said the main entrance is for residents and guest only, I had to go to the contractor/service providers gate on the back side of the complex. He gave me directions and I headed to the back gate.

As I drove to the back gate Cathy said she couldn't remember and ask me to clarify what the guard said...did he say I was to enter the service gate or servants gate.

Yes, we have a new customer in The Dominion and will make one to three visits each week. I'm hoping they tip well at Christmas!

If you didn't know I (we) started a new business last year, our web site is k9nannies.com. Cathy is the head Nannie, I'm the chief poop scupper.

May 2017 American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure ride has been cancelled

Lee Besing
 

The San Antonio to San Marcos to Austin Tour de Cure bike ride scheduled for the month of May, has been cancelled.

I participated in a conference call with National American Diabetes Association officials  earlier this week and this is what I have learned.

All ham operators and other volunteers who had planned to work the TdC event in May will now get a free weekend off.

The National American Diabetes Association has reorganized and restructured their offices across the country in an attempt to lower their financial administrative overhead.

As part of that process, they eliminated all of the ADA employees in the Austin and San Antonio offices, except for 1 or 2 persons.

They (Regional ADA out of Denver) are discussing holding a possible one day event, combined for both Austin and the San Antonio markets, perhaps in the San Marcos area later this fall. No date nor location has been announced as of today.

As I find out more information, I will be sure to pass it on to those interested and post it also at www.SanAntoniohams.Org/blog

If you know of a rider who has already pre-registered for the ride, and has been fundraising for the ride, please tell them that they will need to contact the ADA office to find out the status of their registration and/or fundraising status.

The San Antonio ADA office number is 210-829-1765.
