Shop Night

Shop nights are held at Alameda FD Training building at 431 Stardust Place @ W. Midway Ave next to the Red Cross building. They consist of members bringing in tools, parts, and test equipment, so that they can work on projects together. This gives people a chance to use test equipment they may not own, and provides a chance to learn new skills. Check the ARCA home page for the Shop Night schedule.

Members and guests use tools at their own risk. Minors may use tools only under the supervision of a parent or guardian willing to assume all responsibility for the safety and conduct of that minor.
