As you might have learned recently, the Port Alberni “Swap & Shop” ham event, previously scheduled for Sat, 26 May 2018, has been cancelled. In consequence, Mark (VA7IX) has arranged with local departmental management to convene a “replacement Swap & Shop” at the Errington Firehall, on the a/m date, from 11:00 to 15:00. For those of you who might wish to sell equipment, tables will be available (at no charge), and the appropriate arrangements can be made by contacting Mark, directly, at the above-noted email address or by ‘phone at 250-937-0564. To recap, the particulars of the event are as follows:

Arrowsmith Amateur Radio Club 8th Biennial Swap Meet CANCELLED

CANCELLED DUE TO LACK OF TABLES SOLD....

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
