Fred - N7KRN wrote "Our set-up on Friday went smoothly with the wind waiting until evening to
blow. It had calmed down again by Saturday and we enjoyed nice weather
throughout the contest. A number of visitors came by and the GOTA station was busy all
afternoon. The 20, 15, and 40 Meter bands were working well, so we had a lot of fun
and made an impressive number of contacts. We enjoyed an enormous bounty of food at
the potluck - including some fabulous smoked BBQ brought by Paige. We had great club
member participation with a lot of hard work put into this. You are all Super Hero’s!"
Dave - AL2I "Sends his thanks to all who showed his grandaughter a good time at Field
Day. She was so excited and wanted to get her license “Tomorrow”! Really appreciated
how the club members worked hard to support this activity."
Rick - KG7PMV commented he "Had a great time – especially liked Paige’s brisket at the
potluck! Time to start planning for Winter FD."

informing and helping visitors with Ham Radio questions."
