Canoe Race August 7th, 2010 Pacarc Members to Participate

The East Texas River Runners will host the annual Neches River Wilderness
Canoe Race on August 1st.  Participants in several race classes will begin
the course just below the dam at Lake Palestine at 0800 hrs and continue
downstream 23 miles to the US Hwy 79 bridge.  There are two access points to
the river between the start and the finish where spectators can watch the
event.  Checkpoint #1 is located at the Cuney Bridge crossing.  Checkpoint
#2 is at the Carey Lake Road crossing.  Rest stops with food, water and
medical personnel as well as emergency communications are located at these
checkpoints.  Ham radio operators have customarily manned portable stations
at the start line, both checkpoints and at the finish line.  Ham radio
operators who participate will receive complimentary T-shirts, hamburgers
and watermelon.


EmComm / Red Cross NET

 The EmComm / Red Cross East Texas Net exists to establish a connection between counties in East Texas and to create communication opportunities for use during times of disaster.  

The directed net is open to all Ham Operators. All calls are made to the Net Control station. During the Net, and at the direction of the net control operator, Hams may seek help with relevant Ham radio problems, share an experience or make announcements. All Hams are invited to check in.  

The Net is held on the second Saturday of each month at 3.835 MHz.
