Update on SKYWARN training

SKYWARN Logo Hello to all…

Here is an update on SKYWARN training planning. Ipswich, Mass has been
booked so we now have 15 training sites left to complete for the 2004
season. There is a possibility that a “special” SKYWARN training session
will be done in early October for the 25th Anniversary of the Windsor Locks,
CT Tornado pending approval from Bill Babcock. As always, the sooner we can
get things planned, the better off will be in publicizing all the training
