In parking lot, go to S/W corner of lot
If weather permits, it will
be at the Park or another location. If it's outdoors,
the following applies, otherwise all the below is just extra words!
Bring rigs, batteries,
antennas, etc., and we'll put some gear on the
air -- There are lots of trees in the picnic area where we'll be
meeting. There are also plenty of tables and barbecue grills, a
small playground area, and a basketball court.
What should we do about
food? I'd say, BYOF (bring your own food),
and, if you want, bring something to share. Don't worry about
bringing enough for everyone, because it's really hard to predict how
many will show up.
As always, spouses,
others, children, friends, and
prospective hams are more than welcome.
In case of forecasted rain,
check the site a couple of days before.
A rain date or change of location to Nicky's will be announced here,
by the e-mail reflector, or e-mail directly.
