Re: Ozarkcon event question

OK, so that's 3 VE's who are willing to try it out.� As I said, it's a little too late to try to do it for this year's event, but for 2014, I think it's something that could be added into things.� Looking at the schedule, I honestly think the easiest way to do it would be to allow for testing in the period of time between registration opening at 4pm Friday and the dinner at 6pm - that leaves 2 hours for testing that would not conflict with any other important stuff, and I think that would be a prime chance to allow for some testing.

I think it would definately be worth trying out for a year.� I'm the ARRL Team Liason for our club here in Iola, and it shouldn't be any problem for me to bring the test materials - as long as we could come up with one more Extra-class VE.� I'd even be willing to take the point in trying to organize it for next year, if people thought it was a good idea.

Hey guys!

Just a thought, was wondering if anyone else had ever considered
it....has there ever been thought of conducting a VE testing session
during Ozarkcon? I just started thinking about it as I was sending our
local club's testing sessions to ARRL for listing in their page of
upcoming tests. I'm sure we could come up with 3 people out of the
attendees who are accredited and could provide testing if anyone was
interested in it - I know I'm accredited with ARRL and could be one of them.

I know it's a little late to organize for this year, but maybe something
that could be considered for next year.
