When: This weekend, Saturday 22 June 2013 @ 14:00 EDT to Sunday 23 June 2013 @ 14:00 EDT
What: Field Day 2013 It is looming large on the calendar. It will be upon us before we know it!!
Why : Because it is usually a great deal of fun, and a chance to show what we know.
Where: We will be at the Walmart on 7400 Guilford Drive, in Frederick. This is just off 85. We will be at the right end of the store as you face the front of it, just past the Lawn and Garden section. At that end of the parking lot there are two picnic tables, and we will be setting up there.
Needed: We will need a few folks beforehand at Noon to help us set up which technically may not take that long, but mostly what is needed is folks to move items needed from the storage which is a few blocks away. Very short haul.
Then as we set up we can begin operating at 2:00PM sharp, and let the fun ensue. All are welcome, this is a fun and social event as well so we’d love to have any and all that can attend, even for a short while, to do so.
I am hopeful to get our hobby and our mandate of public service out there and visable, and hope to educate the public that is around us, who may or may not know what we do. This is also an opportunity for Frederick Amateur Radio Club to show the public we are here, involved in the community, and to show them what we do. So show and tell, and communications related items are welcome. We have the use of two picnic tables, and a couple of portable tables if the space is needed. So see you there.
Its our time to shine, so hope you can show up, even for a short while, be there or be square as they say.
