Apparently the Fire Training Center is still being used as a Code Blue shelter, so our meeting will be held in the EOC in Ballston Spa. This is the same location we used last month. It is in Ballston Spa, on the opposite side the street from the Co-operative Extension building at 50 West High Street (AKA Route 67). If you need directions, just give a shout out on one of our repeaters, and you will be talked in.
There is no planned speaker, but this is our normal holiday get together. Plan on a good eyeball meeting and conversation. If you wish you may bring some goodies along to share with the others.
The 17th annual Mohawk Towpath Byway Duathlon is scheduled for Sunday, October 20th.
We need a few radio operators and other support folks to ensure a successful event. I’ve attached the information about the event but please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. We will be working with a couple of the area Amateur Radio clubs and the local CERT volunteers to help staff the event.
