Event Description: 

Field day is an annual event scheduled the last full weekend of June. That makes it the 27th and 28th of June this year. This is the single largest scheduled event for ham operators. Any suggestions on how we can make this field day better will be gladly entertained.
During the April meeting we took a hand count of 17 members that will help the club this year. Dave, K4DJW has already appointed a Field day committee and several items have already been taken care of. Ray, KI4SJ has reserved the Glenburnie Park site for the weekend. The bathroom facilities will be available all night for us. Dave will be announcing the time to meet there for set up of the antennas and operating stations.
When you enter the park bear left past the restrooms and we will be set up at the large pavilion on the left. Look for the club trailer and all the happy faces.
If you know an elected official, Red Cross, or Salvation Army person PLEASE invite them out. If you know of a Girl or Boy Scout please invite them. If you have a friend, neighbor or your xyl invite them also.
You do not have to stay at a radio operating for 24 hours straight (Except Bill Lindquist, K2UFC, who will be hammering away at CW as is his norm). If you would rather operate phone than CW we will have it set up also.
We only have two meetings before this year's Field day. Please bring yourselves and your ideas to these meetings.
We invite all of our members to come out and support us.
We need help setting up and taking down and we need operators and loggers.
