Club Picnic

With the loss of the old meeting and hamfest site, we gave up on trying to hold a hamfest this year. The effort will instead go nto a Club picnic. The date is Sunday September 17, 2017 beginning at 10AM. The Club will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, and soda (aka pop). We do ask that you bring food to share with others. The picnic is open to all hams in the area and their families. There will be a donation requested to help the Club offset costs. The event will be held at the Olympia grove in North Park. More details to follow.

Olympia grove is located at the intersection of Pearce Mill Road and North Ridge Drive, northeast of the Skating Rink. This location was selected for its ample parking and proximity to bathroom facilities. Approximate GPS coordinates are 40.616595, -80.021811, or if you prefer minutes and seconds, 40°36'59.7"N 80°01'18.5"W.

Tickets for the Club's raffle of the IC-7300 and tickets for the Repeater Association's Icom ID-51A Plus will be available for purchase.

Club Raffle

The Club is holding raffle for an Icom IC-7300 HF radio. There will be a limited printing run of only 300 tickets. **UPDATE** The number of unsold tickets is decreasing quickly. There may not be enough to sell at the Holiday Party. For more information, check out the Raffle Link.

Club Breakfast

There is an informal gathering on the second Saturday of every month for breakfast. The gathering starts at 8:30AM and is held at the I-Hop in the Lowe's section of McCandless Crossing located on McKnight Road.
