It's that time of year again!  The Fulton County Health Department has requested our assistance for this years Lockport 5k/10k Run & Walk at Goll Woods.

When: Saturday, October 4th, 2014, 9:15am
Where: Lockport Mennonite Church, Stryker, OH

Lockport Mennonite Church is located at the corner of Williams Co Rd 21/N and Co Rd I-25.

We need to meet at the church by 8:30am for assignments and setting up the base station.  The course is run on county roads through Goll Woods.  Things usually wrap up by 11:00am, sometimes sooner.  We have safety vests we'll bring along. If you bring an HT, make sure you charge up the night before otherwise you should be able to operate from your vehicles.  We plan to operate on 146.460 FM simplex.  If you need a HT, let me or KB8ELG know, although we usually bring spares.

That's the info I have for now.  If anyone else has anything to add, please send to fcarc@mailman.qth.net.  

Please reply back to me if you can assist!

Hello everyone, here are some notes from the Monday night Club meeting:
 
The meeting was called to order at 7:32pm with 17 members and guests. Minutes from the previous meeting and the treasurer's report were read and accepted.
 
Committee reports follow...
 
Education: The VE Team held a testing session on August 30, serving two candidates and issuing two new Technician Class completions.  No calls have been made to reserve the September test session yet.
 
The club participated in the Ohio State Parks on The Air event for a third year in a row at Harrison Lake State Park.   We combined the contest with an end of summer cookout, which had a great turnout from the club.  Some thanks are in order: K8LI for the use of his generator, KB8GOM and KC8UQU for manning the grill, and everyone who brought sides and snacks to share, we certainly were not shy on food.  We ran three rigs, covering 80, 40 and 20 meters, and managed 104 QSOs with 48 state parks and various DX entities.   Our claimed score will be 4,992, which is up slightly from last year.  Most of our contacts were on 40m, as 80 was not in great condition for NVIS contacts into Ohio.  We hope everyone had a great time, and please forward any pictures you might have of the event to me (I'm looking at you WD8KRS and KD8MNG), Some quick photos can be seen here
