The Maccabi Games are just a week away and as yet I have not yet heard from you about your availability. At the moment we have an urgent need for operators on Tuesday morning (Aug 8). I am hoping you might be able to assist. All openings are indoors (basketball & swimming) with relief available at mid-day.
Please let me know if you can help fill these slots.
Hope to see you tomorrow at the orientation meeting in Clarksville.

A reminder that the orientation session for the Amateur Communications Unit at the Maccabi Games is TOMORROW EVENING. The session will be held at the Albany County Sheriff’s Office at 58 Verda Ave, Clarksville at 7:30 pm.
Credential and T-shirt pickup will take place at this meeting. Please note, for security reasons, that a valid photo ID must be in your possession at all times during the games along with your games issued credential. The T-shirt issued will also need to be worn while you are on duty.
If you are unable to attend please let me know ASAP since we will have to arrange for an alternate pickup of these materials.
Thanks and see you Tuesday evening!
