Field Day June 24th

 Attention Members!!

For those that were not in attendance at the June meeting, we were informed that we WILL NOT be setting up at the Wayne County Fairgrounds for Field Day this year.  

Ron Weadick has mentioned possibly using the Club's station in the VFW.  He also mentioned he would look into whether or not we could access the VFW overnight.

Ken Reuth has also offered his property for us to use if needed.

If you are interested in setting up for Field Day this year, please let us know!

Repeating:  WVARC WILL NOT be setting up at the Wayne County Fairgrounds for Field Day this year!
