Did You Miss the Picnic?

If you were not at Debbie, WA2LGZ’s QTH yesterday you missed a FANTASTIC time. While we all missed the ever jovial Fred, W2UB (SK), telling tales of radio adventures past, we forged ahead as I'm sure he would have liked. One of the coolest moments was W2KKZ receiving a meeting attendance award from President K2QQ.

The weather forecast for Saturday is sunny and 80 degrees. Bring your swim suit and enjoy the pool. Also remember a hat and sunscreen!
