A big shout out to Doug Anderson of the Columbia NOAA office for his Skywarn presentation to the club at our March meeting! We had a great turnout to hear the presentation. It was extremely informative and laid out the policies, procedures, and expectations for the Skywarn Net Control team. As a result of the meeting, we had 11 volunteers sign up with the Columbia NWS as controllers this season. I think we took a big step toward increasing our professionalism in emergency net operations. Also want to thank Carl, AJ4AU, for organizing the presentation.
Hey the club is growing! We picked up 3 new members at the meeting.
· Jack Prather – KN4JQL
· Vernon Carver Sr. – K9RVT – You may recognize Vernon as one of evening Net Controllers
· Bill Terezza – KN4HWB
Glad to have you guys aboard!
Soon we will be announcing the plans for our annual Spring Picnic to be held in May……Stay tuned to our evening net or check the web for further details as they become available!
