The McKinney Oktoberfest will be held Friday September 22 through Sunday September 24. Once again MARC will have a public relations booth at the McKinney Oktoberfest. The booth will be located on the south side of the square on Kentucky Street, near Cadillac Pizza. We will also provide a public service to the City by assisting patrons access transportation from the parking lot at the First Baptist Church to the festival site downtown.
We will have an HF radio set up at both locations to allow volunteers to participate in the Texas QSO party.
We need volunteers to help man the booth as well as man the parking lot. You can sign up at http://tinyurl.com/mckinneyarc

The Texas QSO Party will be held Saturday 9/23 from 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM and Sunday 9/24 from 9:00 am - 3:00 PM. For more information go to http://txqp.net/.
MARC holds a simplex net every Monday at 8:30 or following the Ladies Net. We are planning on meeting on 146.540 MHz if that frequency is busy look for us on 146.560 MHz.
We will have a net control and he will pick some relays to help people check in. This is also good practice in the event there is an emergency.
I look forward to seeing you on the radio.
