The DARC is planning a Winter Field Day 2018 outing. WFD 2018 runs for 24hrs starting 1 pm local Dallas time Jan 27, 2018. Additional details and rules on Winter Field Day can be found on the Winter Field Day Association site here.
Dallas CERT has asked their members to share the news about an exciting exercise TOMORROW night. It’s just about the only way you can hike through the DART subway tunnels around Cityplace without being hit by a train, and it’s fun and worth doing. Some volunteers will get to wear injury makeup!
You DO NOT need to be a CERT member, or even able-bodied, to participate. The organizers are specifically seeking participants with disabilities to help make the event more realistic. Everyone of all ages (minors must be accompanied by an adult) can take part.
Move fast—sign up here!
Our next and last “Lecture and Lab” for 2017 is October 28th. This is our “Anything Goes” day. Have a project you haven’t completed either as a L&L or something you would like assistance on. This is your day. Bring your HF buddi-pole for final check-out or completion.
The DARC needs you – please sign up below to help the DARC support the 2017 YMCA Turkey Trot. The “Trot” is Thanksgiving Day Nov 23, 2017 – more details on the event can be found here on this link.

Lifewalk is tomorrow! Water stop operators should be on location and on the air by 11:30 am. Other operators should report to the DARC net control station by 9:30 am. We’ll be in the parking lot behind the big, white house in Oak Lawn (formerly Lee) Park. Walk in volunteers are welcome. Bring an HT, a spare battery, and a mag-mount antenna (if you have one) if you’d like to join up.
The next DARC meeting is this coming Tuesday, October 3rd. Our program will be on the latest news from AMSAT, presented by Bill Reed, NX5R.
