We have a new member, Dave, W2GDJ, who has moved to Nebo, N.C. He is 
inside our ARRL circle just outside our CQ circle. See the proposal 
above for another slight adjustment to our circles that will put Dave in 
for both circles and won't affect any one else. Pleas vote yes or no on 
this change this week.  I'll announce the result of the vote on 
Saturday.  Thanks and 73, John, K4BAI, SECC President.

Hi John,

I got a chance to look at the circle this evening.

We can pull W2GDJ in for both ARRL and CQ with a tiny nudge North. It
would be a move from 33.2N Latitude, to 33.24 N Latitude.  This has no
effect on anyone else.

I will leave the need for a vote up to you.  We would be moving it about
1/10th of 1%, or about 2 nautical miles to the north.

I can work with Chaz once its approved.....
