CVARC Virtual Picnic to be Held Saturday, August 29

Join us for a day of radio fun and friendship as we hold CVARC’s first virtual picnic on Saturday, August 29, 2020.  Because we cannot gather in a park as we have done for past for club picnics, we have gone virtual to keep some of the camaraderie and socializing of our in-person events.

Everything starts at 8:00 A.M. with a special VHF Sprint designed by Keith Elliot- W6KME who created the successful Terry Graves Memorial Event during Field Day.  The contest will run until 11:00 A.M.  Instructions and rules and are available here.

Then from 11:00 A.M. until 12:30 P.M., Brad Ormsby-W6VO will host a virtual barbecue on Zoom.  Set up your grill and come into the Zoom room to socialize with other club members and discuss the contacts you were able to make during the VHF Sprint.  “Winners” of the VHF Sprint will be announced during the virtual barbecue.

Paul Van Zuyle is coordinating the activation of SOTA Peaks for the CVARC Virtual Picnic.  Members wishing to participate in the SOTA aspect of the picnic should contact Paul at:
