Hi folks -

More info about the upcoming April 5th Wal-Mart weather radio event below. We will be having a regular club meeting on April 3rd, but if you can make it to the April 1st training session, please do so! Also, at the April 3rd meeting, we will deal with any last-minute logistics and assign club members to each Wal-Mart. Chris P. is going to send a press release to the OU Daily, so hopefully we will get some campuswide publicity!

IF YOU CAN HELP ON APRIL 5th, please e-mail both me and David Grizzle ([log in to unmask]) ASAP!

The event will take place on April 5th from 9-3 pm.

Both stores will have a minimum of 700 radios.

Wal-mart has taken ownership of this event better than last year. They are going to establish an area in the front of each store, with batteries close by and a separate mean for the customer to pay for the items (I think).

They will provide some staff to do the radios, volunteers to supplement them would be great.

The radios will be the same radio as last year and they will have training on programming on the 1st and 3rd of April in OKC at 6 pm.  If you can go, it is at the Regional EOC for OKC by the OKC Zoo.  If you are going let me know.

I would like to establish a display somehow at least one of the sites.  My trailer should be done by then and I think we can do a nice display.

Please put this out to the groups and have them email me if they can support the effort.
