Upcoming tech rally - Saturday, October 13 at 0830

Good day all CCAR members. What beautiful fall weather!

It has been a couple of weeks since we executed the September tech rally for testing communications to the County municipalities, and the remaining testing is yet to be completed in this month's tech rally. I wanted to share with you some of the results of what has been tested.

We had an incredibly successfully participation in September, and managed to complete initial testing in 59 municipalities! A big thank you to all who helped out...that is phenomenal! That leaves us with only 15 municipalities to test in this month's tech rally.
