Trout Lake Rally Communications

Hi folks,

I’m terribly sorry for how last minute I am getting in touch with you, but if possible I would love to have the help from HARC for the Trout Lake Rally on October 6th, 2019. The event is very similar to those which you have been a part of in the past few years. This year’s event was supposed to take place down towards, the Annapolis valley, but issues with the department of Lands and Forest have forced us to change locations, last minute.

At minimum I was hoping to have 8 licensed operators at this event, although, the more the merrier. I also messaged the club in Greenwood to see if they still had any interest. Do either of you have a regular contact with the Truro Club to ask if they would like to be involved?

Forgive me for the disorganization, as this is the first time I’ve run an event on my own. I could use the feed back.

Cheers
Dustin Chute

If you are interested in helping out please let Dustin dustinchute@gmail.com or Jason ve1pye@bellaliant.net or myself irally@gmail.com know asap.

The rally will be head quartered at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 166. 8706 HWY 354, Kennetcook, NS B0N 1P0. This site will act as Rally HQ , Registration for Co-Drivers, Drivers, Service Crew,  Scrutineering, Start of Rally,  Parc Fermé, and Awards.

CANWARN for Hurricane Dorian

There is now an expectation that CANWARN will be running Saturday night and Sunday morning, September 7 to 8th 2019. I will post the repeaters we will be using later. (There is also an expectation that HATS will be running on the repeaters and they will have priority as they will be sending operational messages.)

The reports will be requested at the top of the hours,

Thanks.

Error in September QST’s Convention and Hamfest Calendar

Error in September QST’s Convention and Hamfest Calendar

Hello, ARRL members in the Maine Section.

Please be aware that the Maine (Windsor) – September 22 hamfest as published in September, 2019, QST’s “Convention and Hamfest”

column on page 97 is an error.  This information from last year’s (2018) event was erroneously reprinted in this year’s QST.

The hamfest in Windsor already occurred on July 27, and the announcement was properly published in the “Convention and Hamfest” column on page 99 of July, 2019, QST.

We, at ARRL Headquarters, apologize for this error.  Thanks to Bill Crowley, K1NIT, ARRL Maine Section Manager, for notifying Headquarters of this mistake.  Any questions regarding hamfest listings can be sent to Convention and Event Coordinator Eric Casey, KC2ERC, via kc2erc@arrl.org.

Thank you.
