Still time to register for Skywarn!

There is still time to pre-register for the 2010 Ingham County Skywarn training to be held next Saturday, March 20th at 10 am. We currently have approximately 150 registrations for the skywarn training. Ernie Ostuno from the National Weather Service will be giving our talk this year. Ernie is one of the senior forecasters at the National Weather Service in Grand Rapids.

WLNS TV 6 Meteorologist Jim Geyer will be presenting immediately after Ernies presentation. We will have a short snack break. Please bring a snack if you wish to eat. There are also vending machines available.

The Lansing ARPSC group looks forward to seeing everyone at Skywarn this year!

Change in Skywarn Training

Due to some unforseen circumstances, we will not be able to provide a lunch this year as we have in previous years. We will have a short break between presentations, and should be finished with our Skywarn Training by 1:30 pm at the latest this year.

Our guest speaker this year is Meteorologist Jim Geyer from WLNS TV 6 in Lansing. Jim has over 30 years experience as a meteorologist and has a great program lined up for everyone in attendance. Jim also recently got his ham radio license. His callsign is KD8CHU.

As always, we would like to thank Lansing Community College for the use of their facility for our training!

New look for the Lansing ARPSC

The new look for the Lansing ARPSC site is here! This site is run with Drupal, which is a content management system. It will allow me to edit the site remotely and allow multiple users to manage the site.

For all members of Lansing ARPSC, please sign up for an account using the "Create new Account" link on the left under the login box. All accounts must be manually setup, which I will do as they come in.
