Freeze Your Acorns Off
PCARS Members:

This Saturday, Feb 9, PCARS will be hosting it’s 14th annual Freeze Your Acorns Off QRP Event.

As in previous years, the operating format will be a “contest” for all participants that set up a station and operate from the FYAO site. And as in years past, the host site is the shelter house at Fred Fuller Park in Kent. The winner will receive a certificate and his or her name and call sign will be added to the FYAO plaque displayed at the PCARS Club site.

We will also be having a contest within a contest…..the Best Recipe Cook-Off. So as many as you feel you are great cooks, whip up your best recipe of chili, mac & cheese, spicy meatballs, stew or whatever your heart desires and bring your dish to pass and have judged by our “expert” panel of judges. (Judges to be chosen during the event to assure “NO COLLUSION – absolutely NO COLLUSION with the Ru…err Judges”

So come on out this Saturday. The contest begins at 1500 UTC (10AM Local) and ends at 2000 UTC (3PM Local). For those of you setting up a station, you are encouraged to come one hour earlier to pick your operating spot. Remember, this is a QRP Event so keep your foot warmers at home.

Come on out and set up a station, bring lots of food, invite your friends to see what this is all about and just have a good time with your fellow HAMS. Most importantly, we’re here to have BIG FUN so I hope to see a lot of you there.

73 for now,

PS: Don’t forget to wear you best Hawaiian shirt!
