The Tony Serrano Century Ride - http://www.tonyserranoride.com/ April 9th, 2016.
I am sure we will be discussing this at the next meeting of the Walton County Repeater Group (https://wc4rg.wordpress.com/ or https://www.facebook.com/groups/1066043030080902/) which is this Thursday evening (2-18-16) at 7:30 pm, at the Walton County Fire Rescue Headquarters. Which is located at 1000 Heritage Pkwy, Between, GA 30656. If you would like to volunteer ham radio services for this event it would probably be good if you could come to that meeting.


GA Orienteering Club - http://www.gaorienteering.org/
This was more of a skill oriented thing than a volunteer event. There is a calendar of events on the website. I did this one time and it was fun and enlightening. I only got lost a couple of times. :)


CERT
Spring 2016 CERT Class Announced
Plans are underway for the next CERT class in Walton County. This free, seven-week course is scheduled to kick-off on Thursday, March 31st, at 7:00 p.m. and run for seven consecutive Thursday evenings with the final review and exercise on Saturday morning, May 14th. Please visit www.waltonCERT.org for more information and instructions for applying. The class will be held at Fire Station 14 in Walton County located at 1760 Bold Springs Road Monroe, Georgia 30655


Fox Hunt versus Gwinnett Amatuer Radio Society (http://www.gars.org/w4gr/)
This will take place Sat, April 16, 10am – 4pm but there is no location listed on their website yet. I have contacted Kyle with GARS (kyle@kandka.com) to see if I can get more info.

For those who aren't familiar with fox hunting: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transmitter_hunting

I do not have any equipment for this type of event so we would need to look into getting something. I have heard of guys buying kits and building them as a group but I have no more info on that at this time. I will see if Kyle can give me more info on that as well.


AND your special bonus for this post:

Kung Fury! in all of it's glory. :)

Orienteering sounds like something my family would like to do. That March 26th Event sounds pretty cool. I'll check my schedule and see if I'm free the next few days. That may be an event we use for a preparedness event if possible.

The future is for those who prepare.
