This article is a new attempt by the NORAC Executive for the upcoming year to briefly document all of our activities as a club. My hope as President is that members will add edits to this page as the year progresses. Please keep the updates very short and to the point, no need to create a monster of a page with paragraphs of detail, that level of detail can easily be done in a separate article dedicated to that topicĀ
