Field Day 2016 is fast approaching us on June 25th and 26th, 2016. The combined OCRA/DFMA Field Day event will once again be hosted by Wilson, W4BOH at his QTH in Hillsborough, NC.
Please see the Field Day information available from either club for specifics. These details will be discussed at the respective club meetings prior to Field Day and you can also look at the various club websites and reflector. A significant amount of setup is done in advance of the actual Field Day(s). Please volunteer to help setup and breakdown , your help is appreciated.
Setup day this year will be Friday, June 24th , 2016 at the Field Day site. Following the days setup activities, Wilson will be hosting a joint club, Potluck Dinner that will begin at 6:00 PM.
Wilson will be cooking three pork butts in his smoker and the rest of us will provide the accompanying items for dinner. Please bring your favorite vegetable dishes, baked beans, potato salad, cole slaw, etc., to compliment Wilson's fine cooking. Chips & dip and vegetable platters are always welcome too.
If you do not prefer the BBQ pork as your main entree, feel free to bring your choice, but be sure to bring it early enough so it can be ready for dinner. A gas grill will be available. A charcoal grill will be available too, but you’ll have to build your own fire.
We will have Iced Tea, Water, and assorted sodas available (Coke and Sprite, diet and regular) as well as ice. If you prefer something else, you are welcome to bring your own sodas.
NOTE: The clubs do not provide BEER or other alcoholic drinks but you are welcome to bring your own. (Please note that the consumption of alcoholic beverages during the FD setup activities is discouraged for safety and liability reasons)
Please contact me by email, phone, or face to face to let us know you plan to attend the potluck.
We would appreciate your letting us know in advance so we can better plan for the number of guests. Spouses are welcome.
I need your Callsign, Name(s), number of folks attending, the dish you plan to bring, any special requirements you have, your phone # or email address and if you can help setup for dinner or clean up after dinner. Please let me know as soon as possible.
