Event Updates

  • After class Field exercise. Spring Valley style at Arboretum. March 3. Exercise went well with 10 nubies and 9 facilitators.

  • Riggins Jet Boat Races April 20 – 22. If there are improvements that people can suggest for the training and operations of the hams at the jet boat races, please send the information to Ty.

  • Bill W. contacted TIM RYNEARSON [email protected] to see how people can sign up for helping at the Riggins races. For the first time in memory, the roster is full—we have as many hams as we “need.” That being said, if anyone still wants to go please contact Tim directly. He can find a good use for additional radio operators—and it’s a great time and a great way to gain experience for this type of event.
