December Activities for NOARC
(See December Activities Newsletter for more info.)
The Christmas parade is coming up December 7th. Remember we do not have a meeting on November 28th because of Thanksgiving or December 26th as this is the day after Christmas.
The Tri-Club Christmas party will again be at the Northbay Baptist Church in Niceville Thursday December 19th at 6 PM. The Northbay Baptist Church in Niceville is at 4681 Highway 20 E. It is on the Northeast corner of the intersection of Hwy 20 and Cypress Streets in Seminole subdivision, or one block west of CHELCO on Highway 20.
All hams, XYLs, and harmonics are invited. This is invitation not limited to the three clubs in Okaloosa. We usually have Walton, Santa Rosa and South Alabama attendees. We will have name tag stick-ons but if you have a name tag it might be better that the stick-ons.
The general idea of the Christmas party is for all the area hams to get to know one another.
This is a pitch in and we will have about 60 attendees so please let us know how many attendees you will arrive with and what you will be bringing so we can make sure we do not have too many of one thing and not enough of another. As we get RSVPs there will be a list of what is committed and what we need. We have always had plenty of food.

The North Okaloosa Amateur Radio Club, Inc. (NOARC) is a service organization located in Crestview, Florida. It has members from Santa Rosa, Walton, and Okaloosa Counties in Florida and Covington County, Alabama. During the club's history, members have supported the community numerous times by providing emergency communications and were often the only means of communication in and out of areas affected by disasters. Club activities include participation each year in the American Radio Relay League sponsored Field Day event, hidden transmitter hunts, picnics, and hosting Technician Classes. Our goal is to enjoy amateur radio and to introduce and promote the hobby to the public to ensure that there will always be a pool of well trained and well equipped hams ready to support our community when needed.
