Southern Alberta Amateur Radio Club is holding a Field Day

Hi Bob,

This may be a stretch for those to attend however would you possibly be able to circulate that the Southern Alberta Amateur Radio Club is holding a Field Day event?

Details are at https://www.saarc.ca/

Just in case someone from up there is interested in attending an off-grid Field Day event in this area.

Thanks!

On Monday September 6th, 2021, Louis (Lou) William Maga, loving husband, devoted father, passed away at age 83.

 

Louie was a very important member of the Central Alberta Amateur Radio Club (CARL originally) for many years. I remember helping him install his tower on the west side of the house and he always had a big smile and wonderful laugh. He was always helping with all club activities for many years. I was so glad I had an hour visit with him on his porch just a few weeks ago when I bought some new RV batteries. I know he will be sadly missed.

CAARC Social – August 28

Hi Everyone, 

At the last club meeting way back in May, it was suggested that we have a late summer get together.  Saturday, August 28 seems to work for many people and John VE6HPY has offered to host it at his place.  
 
We are planning a low key event from 6 – 8 pm. Please bring your lawn chairs, a beverage of your choice and whatever snacks you may wish to bring.  We are planning a fire and John does have extra weenie sticks.  Because of Covid, the club executive felt it was best to keep things simple for this get together.   In the event of rain we could go into one of John’s sheds.  Please RSVP to either myself or to John to give us an idea of numbers.
 
 John’s cell is 403 304 3963 and his address is 39126 RR 280, HWY 11A, Red Deer County.  From Red Deer, go west on Hwy 11A and turn right at RR280, go north until you see a long lane lined with trees on the west side. 
 
This will give us all a chance to have a visit and enjoy an evening together.  Hope to see you there!
 
Sandy Jacobs,
VE6SND
CAARC Club President
