There was a discussion of the YARS special Event station.. maybe during the Almond Festival.. Darrin mentioned that the Almond Festival is often a zoo.

Other options might be the “Flower Train” on the Jepson Prairie- maybe at the Old Power Mill.

For ARES.. maybe a special event at Picnic day.. tied in with the UCD fire department.

There was discussion of maybe seeing if the Emergency communication vehicles from Sacramento or Red Cross come—either as a special events station or as a static display.

For YARS.. maybe have something at Community Park on the 4th of July.

Clinton and Bob will talk to Dave about setting up a meeting soon.

We should all try to get into the Sacramento Valley Net and maybe do something next Monday.
