1999 Scouting Spectacular Update
- Received 500 of the 25 pg. +ACI-Make a Personal Connection+ACI- primers from Kenwood
Communications today. These packets are really packed with lots of answers
to newcomers questions. Still waiting to see if the +ACI-VC-H1's+ACI- are going to
show up on my door step.
Dan (W4BNC) and myself, helped Chris Bengivengo of the +ACI-St. Petersburg
Association of Firefighters+ACI- put together a multi-colored banner for the
event. Seems that the program being used to guide the plotter doesn't have
spell check capability. Between telephone calls, politicians coming in and
out of the door, and calls to the company who produced the software (how to
convert a .jpg to .plt), we managed to misspell a couple of words. Worst
part of it is, the mistakes are in an area that won't allow a manipulation
of a couple of letters, as they we are using the vinyl background on the
banner stock, and not the letters themselves. Hey, we're hams, not sign
We will return tomorrow, and rip the face of the lower half of the banner
off and replace it.
Looks like Saturday will be a nice day. 10+ACU- chance of showers, and
temperature around 79 degrees for the high.
All is coming together quickly. Hope to see some of you at the Scout
Spectacular at the Harborview in downtown Clearwater, this Saturday the
27th. Stop by and operate or just see what Scouting is all about.
