The club as some of you are aware will be participating in the upcoming Jamboree On The Air,October 20th,21st and 22nd 2017.
Toma Mallet,International Representative for the Cimarron Counsil joined us for the June meeting last week to talk about JOTA and to asks a few questions concerning Venue and what events might be included and if we would like to present a Radio Merit Badge class. Kevin N0IRW is looking into the recently revised program that ARRL offers for Boy Scouts.Toma would like to include Girl Scouts and is talking with the Girl Scout Counsel Counterpart.
At this point we are leaning toward the event being held at the Will Rogers Camp Ground, Cleveland, Oklahoma.Some of you may consider camping out for the entire weekend or join us on that Saturday and or Sunday which will more than likely be the days when most of the activities will happen.
Kevin N0IRW suggests that we can offer a merit badge program which can be accomplished over two days, with two hour sessions per day. This can be followed up with a Technicians Class in the coming weeks for those Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts who would like to become Licensed Amateur Radio Operators.
Toma also recommends anyone participating take a brief and free online Youth Protection Training, maybe 15 minutes of your time. Below is a link to Youth Protection Training
Just a few things before I forget. The upcoming July Meeting has been canceled due the date falling on Independence Day. Also please pay your yearly $10 dues if you haven’t already. Happy Holidays
