    What a GREAT idea! With all the newly licensed hams on the board plus those that have been around a while, this will be a good event. We have discussed something like this earlier and now is the time. Come meet others, see and learn about different modes and ask the questions you have. I know i have a bunch. I know there are some out there that do not fully understand their radios, so this is your chance. I'll be there.

    Two different events as far as I know...

    Did not set a time for Mark's house yet to my knowledge.

    The event at the church will be worth tyo attend, even if a church is used.

    geeze louise, just because t hey're having it there does not mean it's a church gig. No different than having it at the VFW hall or? It's about the radio stuff, t hat is all. There a re a LOT of new hams and what better way to met-n-greet? A shack party at my place will = a lot of empty beers but not much real hands-on radio tech.

    With all the new hams (myself included), I agree that the event offered will be best. But maybe a shack party/beer-fest down the road would be fun too!

    And to reiterate, this is NOT a religious function, they are just using the facilities available.

    This is a great opportunity for the new ham or old timers to come out and meet other hams and learn and see cool stuff.

    I am about 90 percent certain that there is one later in May.
    I was asked to help with it, but I will be out of town at a wedding.
    So, I kinda ignored the exact date.
    I think it is May 22.
    Listen to the noon net on 147.21 I am sure they will mention it.
    KA7LOZ is coordinating it ( I think )
    Was planned to be all day, with multiple sessions going on at the same time, so you could rotate thru the ones you want.
    I hope they stick with that format.
    I believe it works best.
