hollandarc.org content continues to grow
The HollandArc.org (http://www.hollandarc.org) website continues to
grow with new content almost every day. If you have not stopped by
in a while, be sure to do so!
The site is only as good as the users that visit it, and
contribute. Hope you will!
- And, having stopped by, I am pleased to see that the forums have been
dropped and that discussion will continue here.

Zeeland Community Hospital has again requested our services for it's annual
Pumpkin Fest Bike Tour to be held on Saturday October 2, 2004. The event
will again be starting, and ending at Zeeland Community Hospital going on a
northern route this year. The event has also changed since last year with
the removal of the long loop, and the addition of a second rest stop. This
year they have only the 10-mile family route, and scenic 35 mile route that
includes a stop at Kirk Park. This should also make for a shorter day for
all volunteers. Volunteers should be at Zeeland Community Hospital between
7:15 AM and 7:30 AM. For the geographically impaired talk-ins are available.
We are looking for a total of 14 people. Due to the shorter day, and
restructured event some people may be able to leave early should you not be
able to participate all day.
Zeeland Community Hospital has been very supportive of the Holland Amateur
Radio Club, and they are in need of, and very deserving of our support. Past
volunteers will also tell you that it is also a "fun" event with some
"unusual" communications mixed in with our mundane net operations.
At the least they feed you, and you get a shirt! So if you are a little
hungry these days, and/or your wardrobe is getting a little sparse reply
here, email me at n8wvn@..., or call me at 616-748-1348. I will repost
this as more details are available, and positions are filled to keep
everyone informed as to what to expect. Below are lists of positions (at
this time), and a list of people presently signed up, and their tentive
In addition to the normal "things to do" they would like to place people at
three intersections that may be unsafe. They are also open to suggestions
regarding any other intersections that hams who know the area feel may need
