FIELD DAY 2019 June 22-23, 2019 Due to miscommunication with the City of Athens Parks and Recreation the lake pavilion will not be available again this year. Therefore the event will be held at Bill?s property between Etowah and Delano. The event will begin at approximately 1100 hours on Saturday June 22 and end on Sunday June 23, around noon. Overnight guests are welcome. Abundant parking for travel trailers, motor homes and tents is available with two outhouses available this year. One has been downgraded to a four star while the second maintains its five star status. Plans for an evening meal on Saturday and a breakfast on Sunday are in the works and details will be forthcoming. Directions to the property: See map below. Ideas for antennas are welcome. We will have the emergency trailer available with voice and digital communication for anyone who wants to make contacts on all available bands and frequencies. Questions, Comments or Suggestions are welcome. Bill W4WPLimage

Greetings everyone,
Cherohala Challenge is June 8. This year the Challenge is looking like it could be the biggest that they have had. As of April 15 they have doubled the registrations of last year. Meaning that we are going to need additional SAG drivers (support and gear) as well as communication crew to work at all the rest areas. This is a good opportunity for community service.
If you are interested in helping or know someone who wants to help please let me know and I will get you on the list. Also, if you have any questions please contact me.
