At our last meeting, we discussed our activities from last year and also how we could
allow members or non-members to express an interest in any of our events, identify
equipment they may have to use at the event, or even volunteer to play a bigger role
such as co-ordinating the event. So what we have is our usual web form where you
can enter you callsign and fill in check boxes etc to inform the executive of your wishes.
The webform is posted under the "Activities" menu pick at the top of this page.
I will also post all replies there so everyone can see how things are going.
What we are interested in at this time are volunteers/participants
for the Summer BBQ , the Bruce Peninsula Mutlisport Race and Cabot Head
but you can sign up for any event you like.
Field Day 2014
Thanks to Grey Sauble Conservation Authority, field day will again be held
June 28/29. Mark your calendar and plan to attend.
In addition, Inglis Falls and surrounding trails also offer breathtaking views of
the area and could make for a great and interesting weekend with friends
73... Adam, ve3izs
Here are some pictures of this years Field Day. We occupied a slightly different area than last year and we were glad of the
shade trees that were there, as well as the opportunities for skyhooks they afforded. There were some challenges due to
antennas that didn't work as well as we would have liked but this was also a good learning lesson when setting up stations in
a less than ideal setting. After all, this is an emergency preparedness exercise, a there is no better way to point out
shortcomings in our equipment and methods to use them.
Thanks to a big effort by Adam VE3IZS who put in a lot of extra time to make filed day happen for GBARC. As usual there
was plenty of food (burgers and sausages) , cooked by Frank VA3GUF on the BBQ. Thanks to all who volunteered their
equipment and time. A special get well soon to Tom VA3TVA's xyl who is recovering from surgery but who attended Field
Day anyway. Special thanks to Kathleen from the 92.3, The Dock Squad crew for covering our event, the OPP constables
who attended and Best Wishes from Bill Walker MP..
