Community Service Activities
The BIRA has been very supportive of community activities in several different ways. We have provided communications support for several parades in our local area. In the past we have assisted community sponsored events by providing communications for go cart races, local floods and disasters. When needed we are available to assist and willing to help with any communication support needs.
Many of our BIRA members enjoy and support the social activities that are sponsored by our club officers. A monthly breakfast is held on the first Saturday of each month. Our monthly club meeting is held in the meeting room at a local restaurant. Many members enjoy a good meal before the start of the meeting. Summer fun activities include picnics with fox hunts, club contest operations and a field day operations at various location in the Southeastern Oregon and Southwestern Idaho areas. We hold an annual Christmas party with fun games and a gift exchange. Anyone is welcome to attend any of these activities and have a chance to learn about Amateur Radio.
