Assaults on Marion and Mt. Mitchell Meeting

A meeting to finalize the details for the Assaults on Marion and Mt. Mitchell will be held this Tuesday night, May 9, 2017, at 7:00 pm.  We still have a couple of water stops that need radio operators so if you can help with the Assaults on Monday, May 15, 2017, please join us on Tuesday night.  Mike hopes to have the t-shirts for distribution also.  The meeting will be held in conjunction with the regularly scheduled rag chew at the Herald Journal building in Spartanburg.

A big thank you to all those who are working this great community event!

The March of Dimes Walk will be held this Saturday, April 29, 2017. The walk will begin at 9:00 am at Duncan Park, 81 West Park Drive, Spartanburg, SC 29306. Spartanburg Amateur Radio Club will once again be supporting this event by providing radio communications during the walk. We need to man the following positions: 2 water stations, 2 vans, 2 people at net control, 1 operator at the stage and 1 operator near the fire truck to help start the race. If you would like to help the club support this event please respond to lisacdav@gmail.com with your name, preferred position, and your t-shirt size. Please note that the organizer has not mentioned t-shirts this year so they may not be available; I am checking on the availability this week.

If you plan to volunteer for this event please meet at the District 7 Operations Center parking lot located at the corner of Union and Virginia Street by 7:45 am.  Vans will pick up their radio operators in the parking lot and other operators will disperse from there.

As always, thanks for your help!
