SARC in the Park August 10th 2019

We had another good turn out for last weekend’s SARC in the Park, with a nice mix of regular and new faces.  Band conditions were difficult, at least on 20m and 40m, which made it hard to make too many contacts, especially running QRP.  The Maryland QSO party helped a little, and I did manage to work a station in CA, but it took a lot of patience!  Bob W9DXR had an equally tough time on CW (also QRP), but his perseverance paid off and we all ended up making contacts.

Club Dinner: Sunday, September 29

The Lucky Monk is located off of Barrington Road, by the South Barrington AMC Theater, and has been kind enough to allow our club members a private room to enjoy a great time with our spouses and each other. It will be an evening to relax and enjoy each other’s company with good food and drink.

We will start the party at 4:00PM. Everyone will be responsible for their own dinner and drink charges however SARC is ordering and covering the cost of appetizers. We will be able to choose from a limited menu.

The room will accommodate 40 people so please advise me if you would like to attend and if you will be bringing your significant other. Since the room limit is 40 people, please only sign up if you actually will attend as others may be turned away.

Further information will be coming in the days ahead as plans are finalized.
