Committee meeting In Stevenage
This is one of many charity cycle rides arranged by the "Isabel Hospice”, a 25, 50 and 100 KM course starting and finishing at “Bishop Stortford Rugby Club”. The event took place today in ideal weather conditions and we were grateful to have permission from the Cambridge Repeater Group to use the GB3PI repeater once again this year, facilitating safety and welfare communications around the course. The picture shows Cllr Colin Woodward, Mayor of Bishops Stortford, and members of St John Ambulance and RAYNET teams, with our Mobile Communications Unit.
Thanks to all members who volunteered to support this event and our congratulations to the riders, who hopefully raised substantial funds for this year's chosen charities. The picture shows our Mobile Communications Unit, set up at the start/finish area in Oaklands College, St Albans.
For this session, we will have a guest speaker, Jan KC2YUE, who will be talking about her experiences on the other side of the Pond, on the other side of emergency comms - as a member of the American Red Cross she attended two major incidents, where ARES (American equivalent of RAYNET) played an important role.
The minutes for this meeting are now on the committee page, for those members with a login.
Howard, G1BYY, will be presenting the 2nd half of the "Organisation" National Training Module: "Structure" and "Special Interest Teams".
