ELECTION NOTICE - STATEMENT OF CANDIDATES
23 members were nominated to run for a position on the BOD. So far wehave heard from four who decline the nomination. MIKE CHABAK, VERA CRABLE,DON JOHNSON & MARJORIE WITTE. Each says "THANKS!" to those who nominatedthem. This month and next(September)we present statements from those whoare activly seeking one of the three positions open on the BOD. In Sept.,all Full Mmembers will receive a ballot with their bulletin.
PEGGY THOMPSONI have been SWLing/DXing since 1970 and an active SPEEDX
member since 1977. Never having served on the BOD before, I cannot promisea long list of "if elected's", but as a Christian I can promise to do thevery best I can. I could not offer anything less than my best to a clubwhich stands out as best among the others.
RON HOWARDIt is with great pleasure that I accept the nomination to part-
icipate in the upcoming Board of Directors elections, especially as 1981marks the tenth year of honorable service that our club has provided tothe active, worldwide shortwave listening community. It was approximatelyten years ago that I became engrossed in our facinating hobby and duringthese years I have been a firm promoter of the many beneficial aspects ofboth SWLing & DXing. As your representative I will endeavor to utilizethis experience and to be receptive to suggestions from the membership andalso to strive to maintain the high level of excellence of SPEEDX. Pleasebe an active member and vote. Thank you.
ARTHUR S. GETZELIn the last ten years, SPEEDX has grown into America's
premier shortwave radio club. As an editor in SPEEDX for seven of thoseten years, I have tried to do my part in contributing to our club's success.There is really no way I can thank the membership for nominating me. It isa priviledge of the highest order. But if I am elected, I will see that:- SPEEDX dues are kept as stable as possible in these inflationary times.-The membership has more input in determing club policy.-The bulletin is expanded and many new special publications are inaugur-ated.
-SPEEDX begins a vast public relations campaign in order to increase ourmembership roll.
In closing, all I can say is even if you do not vote for me - please vote.Only you can determine the future course of our club. I am confident yourchoice will be the right one.

SPEEDX ANNUAL FINANCIAL REPORT
THIS IS A SUMMARY OF THE SPEEDX ACCOUNT FOR THE PERIOD JULY 1, 1980 TO JUNE30, 1981 INCLUSIVE. A MORE DETAILED FINANCIAL REPORT IS SENT TO EACH BODMEMBER EVERY MONTH. NOTE THAT WE HAVE MERGED SPEEDXTRAS INTO SPEEDX ACC.
Balance on hand July 1, 1980 (includes SPEEDXTRAS) $8,836.73
RECEIPTS Prepaid SubscriptionsPrepaid RenewalsMisc(Supplies,Samples,etc)
Total Receipts $17,895.05
DISBURSEMENTS Bulletin Publishing(12 issues) $10,730.02Bulletin Postage(12 issues) 5,000.02Mailing Labels 204.00HQS Printing(includes club supplies
ex-SPEEDXTRAS, NMP,GRAM, etc) 1,528.47HQS Supplies 221.71HQS Postage(mailing supplies,
samples, inquires, etc) 1,113.86Misc.(includes sub to BBC -MS, CDE,

Total Disbursments $19,426.23
Balance on hand June 30, 1981 $7,305.55
(NOTE: The decrease in 'Balance on hand' is caused by several reasons. The merging ofSPEEDXTRAS(which lost money due to the lack of a SUG), the increase in publishing costs,the fact that our last rate hike has only taken half effect at the time of this report,and of course inflation overall including postage hike. Not to worry as we are stillin good shape over the long haul.)
I certify this summary of the SPEEDXaccount is true and accurate to thebest of my knowledge.
