NWS Spotter Training - Christian County

Wow! It was a blowout crowd at the Nixa Community Center. NWS Senior Forecaster Megan Terry (KC5YNO) did a solo appearance and conducted the training. She came across as very knowledgeable on the subject matter, and intelligent and witty, which made this educational presentation an enjoyable event.

The crowd was made up of all types, general public, law enforcement, fire and EMT personnel, amateur radio operators, SkyWarn spotters, and even TV meteorologists. Both Dave Snider and Brandon Beck from KY3 came, and even brought there sons. Brandon was behind me and out of my sight, but I can tell Dave is really into his son, and is a proud dad. He looks bigger on TV, though.

The count was around 107 people. Megan did a great job projecting her voice and a great job managing the large crowd by herself. Nice work Megan.
