The rugby World Cup is scheduled to take place in New Zealand 2011. It can be confidently expected that there will be an invasion of large numbers of fans, supporters and hangers-on in towns and cities where Cup events are being held. There will be radio amateurs from overseas in and amongst them.
Council is now putting out a call for a volunteer(s) from the membership to compile and to keep updated, a web page for the NZART web site to: List the venues where World Cup events are being held with the date(s). List the local amateur radio Branch/club meetings scheduled for (say) the week before and the week after, at these venues.
Encourage special meetings for the purpose of welcome and fraternity friendship.
Provide details of the correct name of the local Branch/club, with the name(s) of a nominated contact person(s), callsign, email address, phone number.
Advise who to contact to provide the details of any transport arrangements to give visitors a lift to/from meetings.
List the local VHF and UHF repeaters and organise active monitoring of the repeaters during the period.
Advise the arrangements for qualified visitors from overseas to operate in NZ.
Advise overseas radio journals and overseas amateur radio news outlets in a timely manner of the existence of the web page and its purpose and to advise visitors to BRING YOUR HAND-HELD rig.
And to organise and attend to any other appropriate matters. Anyone interested in doing this should please contact:
