Red Deer Hamfest – Central Alberta Amateur Radio Club
Hams from many parts of Alberta met last weekend at a hamfest in Red Deer hosted by the Central Alberta Amateur Radio Club (CAARC).
Groups such as the Southern Alberta Amateur Radio Club (SARA) and Alberta RAC/ARES took advantage of the opportunity to meet and conduct their business. RAC President Geoff Bawden, VE4BAW and Director Mitch Mitchell, VE6OH, (Alberta and Northwest Territories and Nunavut) were proud to make a presentation of RAC shirts to CAARC Club President Bob King VE6BLD and Garry Jacobs, VE6CIA Alberta Section Manager.
Mr. Bawden made a presentation on the recent history of RAC and outlined our future. The return of RAC to financial solvency and its accomplishments since 2010 were discussed with members.
RAC would like to acknowledge and thank CAARC for the grant of $600 to help cover Mr. Bawden’s travel expenses.
Mr. Bawden will be visiting other groups in Alberta before he returns home to Winnipeg, Manitoba.
