      Good evening one and all,

      I'm proud to say we had representation from Red Cross and most of the area clubs (ARC2, IART, IRAC, NARC and WEARC). As well as our RACES Radio officer (Ray).


      I mentioned the fact that West Orange CERT will probably be joining us for some of the exercises we may have this year. I will also be working with other area EmComm groups to expand our access to training.


      Ron (KC2SOU) mentioned there will be SKYWARN training being offered in his area. He will get back with more info, and let us know if there is room for more. I am aware that Leon (N0TAZ) is working on offering SKYWARN training in his area. I was expecting him to fill us in but he had signal problems later in the net.


      As the Net officially closed Mike (WA2JSB) joined the conversation that followed. Mike was pleased to hear the turn out for the net. Let's keep it up guys. Great kick off for the year.
