Registration for Idaho Rally 2019 is now OPEN       1/18/19
The dates for this year’s Rally are June 20-23 with the same stage roads being used as last year (Harris Creek, Meadow Creek,
Grimes Pass,  Spanish Fork) with the possibility of adding one more (Clear Creek). So we're going to need just as many
Radio Operators, if not more. If you were signed up for last years event, log in at www.rallydata.com and update your previously
saved information.  If you know of other Ham Radio Operators that would like to help out, please urge them to sign up, as well. 
Any questions or concerns need to be sent directly to n7ubo@msn.com
Here's hoping to see you in the hills in June.

Idaho ARES
This Idaho ARRL website is not meant to replace our ARES website; it is still the heart of where ARES activities take place. As before, new members
register, reports, rosters and more are still there. However, we would like for you to post your ARES activities on this website’s calendar, events
and news for all to see the services we provide.
