It's time to wrap up the yard work, get cleaned up and head out to the club meeting tonight atat the Nixa Fire Station at 711 N Main in Nixa.
We'll be giving you detailed information about all the club's repeaters, with some exciting things coming that we weren't expecting!
Plus, we have the club trailer! Just picked it up yesterday, you get to see it before we get started customizing it. We plan on bringing it to the meeting every month so you can check out the progress as we strive to have it done in time to use it at the Tour de Bass bike ride in October and for the Baldknobber's special event station being planned for the hamfest this November.
Hope to see you all at the meeting !

Well everything has been taken down and FD 2015 is a wrap. We could not have asked for a perfect weekend, the weather could not have been ordered to be better. I just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who was able to make it out. It all started looking good from set up time, plenty of people showed up and worked together to have all stations up and running in time for people to get a break before starting to operate. Plenty of people come out and spent time operating and visiting. We saw alot of good friends that always are able to make it and we also had alot of new faces. We even had some visitors from other clubs drop in. We ended up putting well over 1000 QSO's in our FD log. All and all I would say we could not have asked for a better event. I will go over and get our scores put together and let everyone know the exact numbers.
Prior to the beginning of the meeting videos from previous Field Day events were shown. Members enjoyed looking at past events.
Ending Balance: $8238.49 with $30 in petty cash
