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.

I am sending you a SPECIAL June edition of Sparks from the Spa Newsletter EXTRA. Last night was the club’s annual meeting, and with our normal monthly hiatus (we don’t meet in July or August), I wanted you to get the information from the meeting.
Hope to see many of you at the new Field Day Site later this month.
Don’t forget the June 10th club meeting. The Board of Directors is at 6:30, and the General Membership meeting is right after at 7:00 PM. It’s our last meeting before our summer hiatus. There will be no meetings in July or August. The location will be the usual location at the Wilton EMS building just off Jones Rd. in Wilton.
This is our annual meeting, so that means that the meeting is focused on getting new officers and directors elected for the year. There is a notice in the newsletter.
