BC Summer Games

Hi Folks

The Cowichan Valley Amateur Radio Society will be supporting the BC Summer games this year in the Cowichan Valley. Amateur Radio will be involved in the Mobile Patrol part of the Security Section for the games.
The CVARS would like to extend an invitation to members of the Nanaimo Amateur Radio Association to assist with this event.
The games will run from July 19th to 22nd. We will be setting up a Net Control station outside the games office in Duncan and communicate with designated amateur mobiles patrolling specific areas. This will be a 24 hour a day operation. I suspect we will be using the Mt Sicker repeater for the event.
We are looking for hams with vehicles and some in net control to work 6-7 hour shifts. Volunteers will be required to register with BC Games and provide a Criminal Records Check. Interested Hams should contact me for more information.
Planning for this is still underway by the BC Games office. I am the Ham representative for the Mobile Patrol function. July seems like a long way off but time flies and we want to stay ahead of the game.

Please distribute this to your executive and members as needed.

God Bless
