Re: JOTA assistance requested in Canton, TX
- Thanks Dale,
Canton is in Van Zandt County within the NTX Section of WGD ARRL. Here in West Gulf Division, we have a Division Asst Dir - Radio Scouting and four Section Asst. Mgr - Radio Scouting. I serve as the WTX ASM - Radio Scouting. I am forwarding this request to our NTX ASM -Radio Scouting and WGD ADD - Radio Scouting for review, along with copying the sender with all e-mail addresses in the clear so they may take care of their business.
Note for Dale: I will be competing on the Croton Creek chuck wagon at the Lincoln Cowboy Symposium and Cook-Off in Ruidoso, NM this weekend.
