The DEADLINE, May 31st, to Reserve your tickets for Field Day dinner and breakfast is approaching fast. Since this year dinner is being catered we do not have ANY flexibility to extend this DEADLINE. We must have an accurate count to place our order. If you want to have dinner and or breakfast with us you MUST send an email to Tom, WB8LCD, as instructed below or we will not be able to serve you.

Dinner is free for all members, but again you must reserve your ticket not later than Thursday, May 31. Guests are also welcome to dine with us for the price of $5.00 each. A pancake and bacon breakfast will be served Sunday morning; the price for ALL will be $1.00; Ticket Reservations ALSO Required. The May 31 reservation deadline applies to tickets for dinner and breakfast.

To reserve your tickets: you must send an email to Tom WB8LCD, tomsly29@gmail.com “re: FD Reservation”, stating the number of tickets needed, which meals and number of guests for dinner. EXAMPLE: WB8LCD Dinner + 1 guest and Breakfast: 2 tickets

You may pick up and pay for your tickets at the June regular club meeting or on Field Day. However you must submit your reservation to Tom by email on or before Thursday May 31. This way we will have an accurate head count.

20 Meter Loggers needed for Field Day!

Loggers needed! Want to participate, but aren’t sure you are up to the challenge of the crowded band conditions? Logging for an experienced operator is a great way to work on picking callsigns out of the pileups and to get an understanding of how to hold a frequency.

Drop me an email at epelz0@gmail.com if you are interested in operating 20 meters.
