RAC/ARES meet in Red Deer Alberta.

RAC/ARES members took advantage of the recent Central Alberta Amateur Radio Club Hamfest in Red Deer Alberta to meet and discuss issues ranging from recruitment training and organization.

Alberta ARES has had a busy period providing communication services to their communities with the recent floods in Calgary and High River and the Great Slave fire as only two examples.
