After it was brought up at the last club general meeting, I wrote a letter to the Editor of the Edmonton Journal in regards to the KPMG report released earlier that week by the Province that reviewed the Slave Lake fire disaster in 2011. The full report can be found here and a couple of Edmonton Journal stories can be found here and here. The letter was published on May 16th.
Please click on the "read more" link below for the letter as published.
Don't forget to sign up for some of our upcoming Public Service events. These events put the face of the club out in the community so the community gets to know us better and not just thinks we're a bunch of smelly old, Timmy-worshiping, anti-social geezers with funny looking porcupine-like vehicles. The public service events are also a great opportunity to work as a team under net conditions and to exercise and hone your radio skills. They can also be fairly entertaining at times too!
UPDATE: The decals have been ordered! We're ordering 40 pairs of the regular NARC decals, 1 pair of IC decals and 1 pair of NC decals.
To the right, here's an artist impression of our friend, Derp, demonstrating the IC decals.
Executive Board Update
