It is time to start planning for the 2013 Hurricane Workshop. This year's workshop will be on Saturday June 1 at the George R. Brown convention center. I do not yet know just how many positions we need to fill. I would like for you to look at your schedules and let me know if you would be able to support the communications requirements of the workshop on June 1. As always I will try my best to schedule everyone where you have some time off to visit the booths and displays at the workshop. I am expecting the event to be structured much like it has been in past years so our support effort should be almost identical also.
I expect activity will really pickup after the BP MS-150. So stay tuned to your email. Please discuss with some of your ham radio friends and encourage them to also volunteer to support our communications effort.
Contact George Fletcher, AD5CQ at:

The Combat Triathlon is a swim, bike and run event that starts and finishes at the College of the Mainland campus in Texas City on Saturday, May 26. CLARC will only support the bicycle ride portion of the event. The swim is the first event and will start at 7:00 a.m. with the first bicycle riders exiting the changing area around 7:15 a.m. The course, which goes from the Mainland campus up the northbound I-45 access road and back, is about 10 miles long. The event will be over before 10:00 a.m. If you can support this triathlon, please send an email to me at
and include your T-shirt size. Thank you in advance for volunteering.
