Hi All,
Exercise Handshake is on for May 26th @ 1900hrs on a MAVCOM Repeater near you, but not at the club room. If you wish to participate, do it from home.

Unless things change in the next week or so the June meeting is canceled.

Please remember that until the pandemic is over and or we get the all clear from Dave Westlake, Colchester EMO Coordinator, the club room and the EMO Bldg are off limits to usage by TARC members.

Everyone stay safe, wash your hands and we will all meet again when this is over.

Hopefully everyone is doing as well as can be expected with the pandemic.

Just a quick reminder that the April club meeting is cancelled.

At the present time Exercise Handshake is still on for April, but not at the club room. If you wish to participate, do it from home. I will let you know about the May meeting.

SMART 2020 canceled

March 23, 2020

To all SMART members,

With deep regret the organizing committee of SMART have come to the decision to cancel this year’s symposium due to COVID-19.

We would like to thank all the presenters and volunteers who came forward and the 140 amateurs who registered.

The committee would also like to thank everyone who donated prizes.

We would like to remind everyone to listen to the instructions given out by your province, social distance and have patience during these times.

We want all of you to join us next year for SMART 21.

Take care and stay safe.

Organizing committee for SMART.

Covid-19 & TARC

Hi All,
As I am sure you are aware the Covid-19 virus has arrived in NS, as 3 presumptive cases were announced today at the NS Government news conference.

As a large portion of our members are in the 65+ range and or have additional health issues, along with all the closures due to Covid-19, I have decided it would be in the best interest of the club to postpone to later dates the following:

  • the Basic Amateur Radio Course
  • the club dinner
  • Exercise Handshake participation @ the club room
  • April Club meeting

Also until further notice the Colchester EMO Coordinator has requested that club members not use the EMO Bldg and club room due to the Covid-19 out break. This will allow for better cleaning and sanitizing of the building during and after the threat is over.

I will monitor the situation and once the Covid-19 issues are over we will finish the course and get back to our other normal activities. Including the use of the EMO Bldg.

Thanks everyone for your understanding.

Dave
