March Update

A big thank you to everyone who helped to make our Big Event a huge success last night. We had great turnout and a lot deals were made over the course of the night. FARC also held a license testing session last night. I would like to send a very big thank you to George Brown K3GBB for helping to make the session a success. Looking ahead to our next meeting April 20 Phil Stalnaker W3ICF will present his rescheduled presentation on D-Star. Hope to see you there.

THE BIG EVENT

Its finally here! The Indoor/Tailgating Event will take place on Monday March 16 at the Social Hall in the rear of the Independent Hose Company 310 Baughmans Ln. in Frederick. Doors open at 6:00 and we will be offering items for sale, license testing, door prizes and more. Admission is free to all! Non-members can reserve two tables for $20.
