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.
If you are interested in helping out please let Dustin firstname.lastname@example.org or Jason email@example.com or myself firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Congratulations to the new 2019/20 club executive.
President – Dave Hull VE1HUL
VP – Logan Shaw VE1LFS
Treasurer – Michael Harvey VE1MBH
Secretary – Kim Werkman VE1KJW
Welcome to Kim the new member of the executive as everyone else was elected by acclamation.
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,
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 email@example.com.
Steve Ewald, WV1X
Supervisor, Field Organization Team
Less than a week away to the September Club meeting, on the 9th @ the EMO Bldg on Pictou Rd in Bible Hill.
Don’t forget the club AGM with the election of officers will take place first. Then we will get into the regular meeting.
The current executive have agreed to re-offer for the positions they now hold. We do need a club secretary though.
Memberships for 2019/20 can be purchased at the meeting.
