= New Shack September 28 2013 =

Saturday, September 28, 2013, Randy Smith VA3RKS, led his team of
CRRA members in the planned move of an 8' x 8' solid aluminum
"bungalow" generously donated to the association by the
Canadian Pacific Railway. The donation was engineered by Past
President Graham Patterson and the agreement between the CRRA and the

CPR was signed and became official just after the AGM in June 2013.
weather could be described as a perfect fall day and all team members
were at the site in Renfrew by 8am. Eventually the new shack will
become either a new larger home for the current VE3STP repeater or a
space for another repeater or other related equipment. 
Our other corporate partners were Marshall's (the crane) of
Renfrew and Dumpy'z Dumpsters (the transport) of Pembroke. The CRRA
would like to thank them immensely for their efforts on our behalf."
