We had a great turnout for the Season Kickoff Meet and Greet. Even in the middle of March Madness, Real Time Sports did a great job of taking care of us and ensuring food and drinks were served timely. In addition, we managed to get a great start to the neglected “Stuck Jar” for 2018.
Scott Herold has officially accepted the role of Secretary and Treasurer for 2018. Oddly enough, no one seemed to be jumping up and volunteering or fighting in any way for the position.
Finally, Darrell worked his way around the crowd fighting hard to play show and tell with his FRS Radio. The topic has come up about transitioning from CB to FRS Radio while on the trail. There are some advantages to this, such as ditching unwieldy antennas or having poorly tuned CBs. FRS radios will provide a highly portable for issuing spotting instructions with limited visibility and ultimately have less chance for interference from other groups on the trail. It’s definitely worth a shot in our early runs to see how well it works.
We’re all looking forward to an exciting 2018 with Down and Dirty!
