    From Brian KB3ORS... Now an EXTRA Class
    [h=5]I'd like to thank all who helped with the Warren County RACES Ham In A Day class yesterday. We had an amazing turn out. 101 yes One Hundred One participants. 63 of those successfully passed there technician level exam. Please check out Warren County RACES face book page for photos, further updates, and stories. We are asking any Elmers willing to, sign up on our Warren-HIAD yahoo groups page, help continue their education and interest in the hobby. Congratulations to Bob N3MWD, Lisa N3TEP, and myself KB3ORS upgrading to the Extra class.[/h]

    I think that's great. But a 37% failure rate?

    A 37% failure rate is better than 100% failure rate in my opinion. Maybe a better way to phrase that is to say we had a 63% success rate. The class was 33% kids under 12. I would venture a guess that about 50% of those kids were under 10. That is 63 more people who are licensed and will keep the hobby alive and active. The people involved with this class worked very hard on it to make it a success. I understand some people in the hobby do not believe in the HIAD concept but if something is not done to promote the hobby in a positive way it is going to die and we will loose the spectrum we have out there. One of the good things that came out of this class is the creation of the yahoo group to elmer these new hams. Maybe instead of people disapproving of the concept they should join the yahoo group and mentor some of these people who want to learn what ham radio is all about. Elmer them, teach them, empower them.
