The First Annual First Responders Cup Golf Tournament sponsored by the McMinn County Amateur Radio Club is scheduled for May 17, 2019. We need sponsors for the event of course. A list of potential sponsors is available for review. Please look over the list and pick an entity to contact if you possibly can. Some of these potential sponsors are already picked so make certain you check the list before contacting them so duplicate visits are avoided. Please provide feed back information once a contact is made so we don't have multiple club members trying to pursue the same potential vendor. Also available is a Golf Tournament Flyer and a sponsor letter that can be given to a potential sponsor that gives details about MCARC and the need for the tournament. There is also a receipt document. To obtain digital copies of these documents of which printed material can be made, contact. Steve, K4SRR, stephenrickerson@bellsouth.net, Gary, W3GME, gary@eiff.com or Bill, W4WPL, Sparky720@gmx.com. It is hoped that all MCARC members become involved in the effort to find sponsors for this event. Only through your help will our club be able to honor the First Responders as well as help provide funds needed for club projects and infrastructure improvements. Bill W4WPL

Greetings everyone,
Cherohala Challenge is June 8. This year the Challenge is looking like it could be the biggest that they have had. As of April 15 they have doubled the registrations of last year. Meaning that we are going to need additional SAG drivers (support and gear) as well as communication crew to work at all the rest areas. This is a good opportunity for community service.
If you are interested in helping or know someone who wants to help please let me know and I will get you on the list. Also, if you have any questions please contact me.
