Events:
For the 2018 Season:

  • Coming up!   Cottage Grove Half Marathon.   April 7th. (3rd running!)   It has been way fun every year, the athletes seem to like us out on the course, a very positive event for us and Cottage Grove!

  •  Don't Miss!  SLARA's 1st annual Home Station Simplex Test! May 12th, 2018. OK, maybe not annual, but we can hope! This will be fun and informatitve! 09:00 - till everyone quits! 146.46, with Bear for backup. This will hopefully give us a lot of intel for who can talk to where when the repeaters can't play.

  •     Coast Gravel Epic. May 19th, 2018. This is also Mudslinger events! Used to be in the Fall!

  •     Creswell Preparedness Fair! May 19th, 2018. This is at the Cobalt Building 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Fun stuff for the kids and good information. Come learn more about being ready for disasters!

  •   Can't wait!  Oregon Gran Fondo. Saturday, June 2nd. Mudslinger events. Same date as the first one - but on a Saturday - could be cold and wet!
    The Piccolo course is back,(new course location!) and a new "Sherman" course of 137 miles! Looks like we have a need for a few more operators with an additional Aid Station and probably ride-alongs with Sag vehicles.
    Las year was a rough day for propagation. Bring your plan "B" gear as well!

  •    Field Day! June 23th and 24th, 2018.     We usually just work Saturday - starting setup 0800! Burgers and goodies - potluck again, Please let ? (unnamed as yet!) the coordinater know what you are bringing!        

  •    Tri at the Grove. July 21st, 2018.   Should be pretty close to normal. Always a fun event!          

  •    Cottage Grove Emergency Fair. August 12th, 2017 Waiting for the 2018 date announcement! Worth attending - come show your support for what we support!      

  •    Lighthouse Weekend. August 18th and 19th, 2018. A wonderful event for a couple great causes! Lots of info on their website. And you can get a great coast weekend out of the deal!

  •     Waldo 100K. August 18th.   Matt, W7ARD heads up the radio portion on this one. Very organized, a great experience!

  •   Pine to Palm 100.   September 8th and 9th. An awesome event to work (and work hard!)- and they could use a few more good remote location ops, this is some tough terrain!  

******************************************************************************


Best Deal in Lane County!

The Masonic Center has the best breakfasts in the County on the third Sunday of every month - from 8 to 11 am. The cost is $6.00, or a can/package of non-perishable food and $5.00. They very graciously let us use the Center for our meetings, so let's support them by coming to their breakfasts when we can! March 18th is the next one.
