Saturday In The Park & Directions

Post by Michael M »

No, this isn't Chicago's hit in the '70s. Due in part to the success of our picnic, we've got a new activity that's going to begin next month - “Saturday in the Park.” It will be the Saturday that follows our Wednesday monthly meeting, so next month that's going to be February 25th at 10:00 a.m.

While the weather is cool, this will be a monthly, informal get-together that will include radio work for those who are interested. All are invited. We are also going to coordinate this with our sister club, the Fair Lawn Amateur Radio Club (FLARC), in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, to make HF contacts up there.

On some months we will provide food and drink. Bring food, drink and snacks for yourself, and anything you may like to share, and radio gear if you’d like to participate. If you don't have any HF gear, no worries, we share!

As always, everyone is invited… members, non-members, participants and observers, come one, come all!

When you enter the park, follow Prince Dr for about 8/10 of a mile. You will see the parking lot on your right hand side. If you come to the end of the road, you've passed that by a few hundred feet.

Note: Saturday In The Park runs from October through May. Reminders are posted on our main page.

Hi,
Is this event and the monthly meeting open to non members? If so, where is the monthly meeting?

Are there speakers and presentations at the monthly meetings?

Absolutely, Jeff. We welcome visitors to our monthly meetings and activities, including folks who are thinking about getting their license. We are a very open and friendly club. For this event, bring your gear and come on out!

We meet for our monthly meetings on the fourth Wednesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. at the Cox Science Center and Aquarium, 4801 Dreher Trail North, West Palm Beach, Florida. Due to Thanksgiving, the November meeting is a week earlier, and due to our Holiday Party, there is no meeting in December.

Thank you for your interest, and we hope to see you!
