GIARS (Grand Island Amateur Radio Society) agrees to be acquired by ARAN (Amateur Radio Association of Nebraska) in a stock and cash deal valued at 999,999.99.
Ron L.. spokesman for ARAN said everyone was real excited about the new group. Quote ” With the addition of GIAR's membership we will have to rent a bigger room for meetings and the average age of our membership will – well I guess be about the same.”
Ron L. also stated that funds for the purchase will primarily be raised by having bake sales and car washes. Quote: ” it's going to be a lot of cupcakes and car washes, but we think we can do it.”
When asked about the purchase price, Ron said that they didn't think they could raise a penny more.
Requests for comments from the board of directors of GIARS went unanswered, they are reportedly vacationing in the Bahamas.
Hey Guys, Sorry I couldn't make it to the fundraiser car wash. It took the rescue squad almost 4 hours to get me out of that old bathing suit. I guess it has been a few years, and it seems you can't “load up” a “20 Meter” bathing suit on a “40 Meter” operator.
