The annual Santa Claus Parade in New Westminster is on Saturday, December 1. We start communications at 14:00 or a little later depending on your assignment, the parade rolls at 16:00 and is all done within a couple hours.
I am looking for about 25 operators for this one. Positions will include the assembly area, with the judging, PA announcers, police, first aid, BCAA, dispersal etc. Several operators will be assigned to provide communications at the intersections and traffic barricades along the parade route. These are good spots for operators who would like to bring their families along to enjoy the parade.
More information on the parade can be found on the Hyack Festival website at www.hyack.bc.ca.
Please help spread the word on this event by announcing it at your club meetings, on your club nets, in your newsletters, websites, club bulletins etc. Also please forward this e-mail to anyone you think might be interested. We want to fill all the positions, we will need all the help we can get!
The only requirement is a handheld and hopefully a spare battery. New hams are always welcome. We can certainly buddy up any brand new hams with an experienced operator.
Please let me know if you are interested. The Hyack committee very much appreciates our contribution and count on us to provide an important service. Please mark your calendar and try to keep the date open if at all possible.
Thanks in advance,
