Less than two months to go before the 2018 Winterfest Boat Parade.

Please volunteer now so every assignment is covered.

For those that worked the parade last year will get the same assignments if they contact Robin immediately before giving your location away.

This event is shown in many different Countries with over 1 MILLION VIEWERS
You will have a front row seat to the parade since all the parade boats
(100 of them) will pass right in front of you.  This is the best seat in the house!

Robin will contact you in a couple of weeks with more information.

It’s that time of year again!

The Winterfest Boat Parade will take place on Saturday, December 15, 2018. If you have worked the parade in the past, we are asking if you would like to work your same position again before we send out a general request to the ham community, please email, Robin Terrill, with

  • Your name
  • Call sign
  • Email address
  • Snail mail address (for our great volunteer party invitation)
  • Cell phone number,
  • Position you would like to work

We will do our best to accommodate all your requests.

If you have not worked this Parade before and would like to work it, I will pair you up with an experienced ham.

We also have an antenna party scheduled from 9:00 am to 12 noon on Tuesday, December 11, 2018.  If you can help, let me know.

The ham operator and control boat operator training (and dinner) will be held on Wednesday, December 12,  2018 in the afternoon at the Chamber office.  Please make every effort to make this meeting as credentials will be handed out at that time.  More details to follow for those who will be volunteering.

We are looking forward to another great event with the best ham operators ever!  Thank you all in advance!  This wouldn’t be possible without each of you.
