VE6RCR escape ladder

Information for anyone who may be at the Red Deer Red Cross station VE6RCR.
The Canadian Red Cross Red Deer escape ladder is hanging in the middle window of the second level and can be used if anyone needs to escape the storage room/radio room and does not have access to the stairs. It is easy to move and the instructions are right on it.

Christmas Pot luck Supper

Everyone who attended the CAARC Christmas Pot Luck Supper had a good time.  There was lots of great food and we had a good turnout.
VA6VAN Vance showed us his flying skills with his new AR Drone flyer.
VE6CIA Garry was voted as Amateur of the Year for 2011, congratulations to Garry
VE6QEN Sarina displayed the GIZMO with her addition of the Death Star Ray Gun.
. VA6VAN Vance was the lucky draw winner for the GIZMO so we will have to wait a year to see what he adds to it.

Adding your own links

I just received a question regarding adding links to this web site.  I’m afraid I have to add the links ..If I turn on the role to manage links then anyone who is a member user could add or delete any of the links already there. I’m sure no one would do it intentionally but all it takes is one mouse click on the delete button and the link would be gone. I may be able to find a widget that will only allow links to be added, not deleted so will search for one in the future. If you have a link to add please just send it to me and I will post it. You can also just add it to the shout box and I will try to watch for them.
