Rev Brenton Daulby VK5FBJD was the guest speaker for the evening who spoke well about peace and goodwill amongst many faiths that he had experienced and that ham radio appeared to espouse those traits and had many good people as members. He shared some funny stories of his journey from being a Police Officer and then Air Force Chaplain.
