Our Brat Fry Fundraiser will be held on Saturday, August 8 (date was incorrect on previous post) at Festival Foods in Manitowoc from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Proceeds will provide needed funds for the Lakeshore Amateur Radio Service Club/ARES/RACES to continue their support to the Emergency and public services of Manitowoc County. Local hams will be on hand to answer questions about ham radio and share their experiences in providing communication services to the community. Stop by and say HI!
The event is co-sponsored by the Members in Action program of the Western Fraternal Life Association.
Next Net - Monday July 20 – John NZ9Z
SAGBRAW – This popular bike tour will again be in our area on August 1 and August 7. Mishicot will be the staging area for the ride, and ham radio volunteers are needed at rest stops north of the Mishicot area. Local hams provide communications assistance to the net control operators as well as tourist information to the riders – many of whom travel from out of state. For more information, contact Anne KC9UHH who is this year’s volunteer coordinator.
John AB9HH is looking for help with radio communications for the the Maywood Environmental Center Earth Ride on Saturday, September 19. Contact him if you can help.
No summer meetings – the next club meeting will be held Tuesday, September 8, 2015 (please note new meeting night) – until then, summer nets will be every other Monday until after Labor Day.
