Happy New Year

Submitted by nx2gw on

St Patrick’s day is coming up and along with it is the St Patrick’s Parade in Syracuse on Saturday, March 16th.  RAGS, Radio Amateurs of Greater Syracuse will be providing communications support for the event and they are looking for Hams to participate.  
I know that many of you enjoy public service operations and this is a fun one, much larger in scale than most of those our club supports.  
I remember a number of years ago I worked the 
Parade when it was windy and hovering around 0º It was amazing how tough some of those “Irishmen & Irish Women” were.  
I have signed up for this year and hope that the weather will be a little nicer. There is a link on the Upstate Ham Web Site www.upstateham.com you can use to sign up if you would like to help out.
Shameless Plug:  As you know, a number of our members are Freemasons, me being one of them. My Lodge, will be running Oswego County’s Best 
Fish Dinners every Friday from now through March 29th at the Lodge just South of the Fire Department in  Phoenix.   Maybe I will  see you there.
