The SKYWARN Training class that was hosted by SCARA this past week in Gallatin was a huge success! In total we had 55 people attend, which is fantastic. Mike Davis, the Information Technology Officer at the WFO in Old Hickory was a great speaker and kept the crowd's attention through the duration of the class, which started at 6:35 and let out at 9:10 pm. Thanks to Ken Weidner, Sumner County Emergency Management Director for the acquisition of the Administration Building for the class.

Due to a recent ARRL (Amateur Radio Relay League)rezoning of the ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Services) districts in Middle Tennessee, the former "Robertson-Sumner SKYWARN & ARES Group" is now just the "Robertson County SKYWARN & ARES Group" leaving Sumner County SKYWARN and SCARA as the sole SKYWARN Group in Sumner County. We will be working close with Sumner County EMA and other public safety offices to create the best SKYWARN Group that we can.

We will keep you up to date!!
