What to bring: SIERA people should bring two generous dishes - enough for their party - and for our Pony Express guests. Your choice of main dish, salad, dessert, appetizer, along with serving utensils. Our Pony Express guests often bring their favorite dish.

Please label all of your service dishes and utensils so we can get them back to you if they are forgotten when you leave.
Contact: Please contact Will Lewis (KD7NIR) for further details about this event.
NOTICE: No glass bottles, glasses, or dishes are allowed in the park, but wine in a box is OK. But don't get rowdy --- if the sheriff gets called out, or we break up the place, we lose our $100 deposit. NO DOGS please, except for service dogs.

We look forward to seeing all of you, along with family and friends.

Don Carlson, Nevada Section EC has provided information regarding his declaration of a "State of Drill/Testing for Potential Emergency" to all members of the Nevada ARES and/or RACES organization effective August 1, 2011.

Please see the referenced documents below for further details. It is recommended that all Nevada Amateur Radio operators print and carry these documents with them in their vehicles at all times. In the event they are stopped by law enforcement for mobile usage of their amateur radio equipment they should show both the Nevada Revised Statues document and the letter from Don Carlson to the officer making the stop. Don't forget to carry your FCC Amateur Radio license with you at all times too.

Above all, be polite to the officer.

When opening the Print menu, check to make sure that "Comments" are included to be printed.
Depending on the version of your Adobe Acrobat reader, it may refer to just "Comments" or "Document and Markups" or something similar.
Selecting this will then permit the document to be printed with the yellow highlighting in the text.

Additional Note: the PDF file containing the 484B.1 document contains 8 pages. However, there is content only on the first five pages. To save paper, just print pages 1 - 5.
