You probably noticed the guest book is missing from the menu bar.
With exactly 147 requests for new guestbook posts ( all from spammers) it was getting a bit overwhelming for me and my email inbox to process.
I’ll wait a while and reinstall the guest book feature again in the near future.
You can still leave comments in the posts, but you have to be logged in to do so.

Yarmouth A.R.C. Assists With 2012 Acadian Games
In late 2011 the Yarmouth A.R.C. was approached by the organizing committee for the Acadian Games (Les Jeux de l’Acadie) in connection with radio communications for the games which were to be held in late June and early July of 2012. More than 1100 young athletes and their support people were expected to take part. After meeting with the committee and learning just what would be required, several club members volunteered to assist. The volunteers were Bernie VE1UT, Max VE1IC, Claude VE1CB, Dave VE1JC, Claude VE1CD, Glenn VE1GBD and Dave VE1GM. After the organizing committee arranged for insurance against loss or damage, the radios and associated equipment were provided on loan from the RCMP. They were delivered to the club’s meeting place two days before the start of the games. That gave us time to charge the batteries and install one in each of the 70 hand-held radios. We then met with the end users and explained the operation of the radios and issued them to the users. The events were held at about 10 different venues and the radios were used at those venues plus at a central coordinating location. Club members looked after issuing additional radios and replacing and recharging depleted batteries at the central location.
The weather was ideal for the entire weekend and the games were a great success. One day after the games ended, all the equipment had been returned and was packed and taken to our club’s meeting place and on the following day it was returned to the RCMP. In all, 70 hand-helds, 70 lapel mics, 140 batteries, twelve 6-gang chargers and 2 TMR base units were returned in good order. Nothing was lost or damaged.
