Just a Few MORE Volunteers NEEDED for antenna setup on Field Day

We NEED More Volunteers to help us setup antennas on Field Day. As noted below we need about 15 volunteers to get all the antennas and stations set up quickly and “easily”. As of this afternoon we still need 3 to 4 more members to help:
Just as we did last year and the year before we are seeking a group of Volunteers who will show up on the Field Day site at 10 am Saturday June 22nd (the morning of Field Day) to help set up the antennas, and lay out power cables from the generator, for all of the Field Day Stations. No special expertise or experience is necessary, each station Captain will provide tools, equipment and supervise antenna construction for their station. We are looking for a minimum of 15 volunteers this year. It should be fun, as well as a good learning experience. To volunteer please simply send me (Tony WA8AR) an email:  tromito99@gmail.com  Subject: Antenna Crew Include Your name and call sign. Last Year we had all of the antennas up and operating just after noon, well before the start of operations! Coffee and doughnuts will be supplied for volunteers in the morning and Pizza at lunch after setup is complete.

Field Day Loggers for 20 Meter Station

PCARS Members:
For some reason we have no loggers for any of the operating slots. I know that there are a few ops that will log on their own. But I need two loggers. One for the very first two hour session to log for N8QE Bob and one for the 10-12 session on Sunday morning to log for N8QE.
Can anyone assist? Also, if you are signed up operate and really want a logger to help, please let me know so that we can get the word out. Thanks.

June Monthly PCARS Meeting

The June PCARS monthly meeting is coming up this Monday (June 10, at 7:00 PM at the American Legion, 1945 Mogadore Rd., Kent, OH) and I wanted to remind everyone that our speaker will be Hal Turley W8HC. He will be talking about the failed Bouvet Island DXpedition and the Oct. 2019 trip to Pitcairn Island. If you know anyone that is interested in DX or Contesting, member or not, invite them to come to this meeting. Hal will be giving a great presentation.
Have you picked up your PCARS mug? They look great and if you are a paid up member you get one free. If you would like more they are $5 each. They will be available at the meeting.
If you owe money for Field Day dinner or breakfast, please remember to bring it to the meeting and give it to Paul, KE8EGF.
As usual we will have our 50/50 and great a great time with our fellow club members. Come on out and have some fun.
Jim, AC8NT
