Hamfest Committee Members Needed

It’s time to start planning for the 2016 ARRL Dakota Division Convention and RRRA Hamfest. This is the largest Hamfest in North Dakota drawing attendees from 3 states and 1 Canadian province. Committee members are needed to plan and run this major fund raising activity for our club. Lots of volunteers will make the work easy for everyone. Planning meetings will begin June 19th.

The Hamfest Committee will use a mailing list for coordination and to assist the planning process. A shared folder is available to committee members at the RRRA ownCloud for document sharing and archiving.

Hamfest Committee volunteers are asked to subscribe to the hamfest mailing list so that they can stay informed and be a part of the conversation.

Rally Volunteers Needed

Volunteers are still needed in all specialties for the 2016 Headwaters Rally on May 21. They have a new venue this year, the Northern Lights Casino in Walker, MN. The stages will be run in the Paul Bunyan forest. The Headwaters Rally is a single-day event that runs in the afternoon. Volunteers may avoid a hotel stay by driving up in the early morning and driving home again that night. For those choosing to stay, the rally organizers have arranged have a great deal with the Northern Lights Casino for rooms at just $80 per night.
