On Friday 8th November 2013, I attended the North East Radio Club and gave a presentation on Summits on the Air (SOTA). The presentation did include the VK5 Parks Award, WWFF, & KRMNPA. But sadly I ran out of time to present the last part re those awards.
There were about 35 people in attendance, who all showed a keen interest in the SOTA program. Hopefully I have encouraged a few more hams to get out and about, and activate a summit.
Thanks to my mate Nigel VK5NIG, for asking me to come along. It was great to catch up with a lot of fellas that I had spoken to on air, but had never met.
I was asked to come back to complete the presentation, and let everyone know about the various parks awards.

Riverland Radio Club, September 2013
On Saturday morning, 21st September, 2013, I gave a presentation to the Riverland Radio Club, on SOTA, the VK5 Parks Award, KRMNPA, & WWFF.
The talk was held at the SES Headquarters at Berri, and a total of 17 people attended. What was really pleasing was that some members of the Sunraysia Radio Group from Victoria travelled across the border for the talk.
