I drove 50 miles to take the General exam but it was canceled
I drove about 50 miles to take the General exam tonight but when I got there it was canceled. One VE showed up and 4 other people showed up to take a test. But it seems the club got kicked out of the Emergency Management office space they were using.
So I'm going to drive to another town Saturday morning in an attempt to take the exam. And if that one should be canceled there is one in a different town on Monday evening.
I'll get my General license one way or the other. Then I'll start studying for Extra.
Dang, that sucks. Good luck with the test, and finding an exam to take!
Sorry , that sucks. Just a reminder to all who might read it , though , it always pays to preregister , and to confirm a day or two before the exam session , in case there's any surprises like this . It shouldn't happen , but it can .

if all else fails you can drive to Vincennes and test, they set the vec up for me and i was the only one testing

Wow, not good. You should try for the Extra exam after you pass your General next time! I remember last winter driving 70 miles in a snowstorm to take my General, 4 VE's showed up, I was the only one testing. Sure glad I passed!

Why, back when I took my exam, I had to walk 5 miles, uphill, through a driving snowstorm, both ways! to take it!
Well, no, not exactly. But in those days, the exam sessions were only conducted locally a couple of times a year, and the dates for those sessions were a matter of public record. If you lived in a big city with a permanent F.C.C. field office, things were a little better, but if you lived in an outlying town, you either made the trip to the big city or made sure you showed up on a given date. Otherwise, you were just plain out of luck!

No time is ever wasted that is spent LEARNING something !
from what i understand. the club getting the boot. was total politics.

I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay: small acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins?
