Fall Picnic THIS Saturday at 5:15 p.m.

It's that time of year again - time for our annual fall picnic. The weather is looking really good for Saturday, with a high of 76 degrees and sunny!

Here's the scoop: Nixa City Park (the original park - behind the Super 8 Motel). We have the pavilion rented from 5:15 p.m. to dark. Here's how you can get there: Take US Hwy to Wasson Drive (there's a Braums, Ozark Bank, Price Chopper, and Cody's gas station on the 4 corners at this stop light). Then, go East on Wasson to Fort St. At this intersection, turn left and travel North to the city park, which will be on your left. For those of you that came last year, this is the same spot and same pavilion as last year.

Everyone is welcome! The club is providing the hamburgers, hot dogs drinks and paper plates / napkins / silverware, all we ask is that if you come, please bring a desert or side dish or both.

Dale Bagley, K0KY, and Keith Haye, WE0G, will be at our picnic representing the ARRL and awarding the club it's Special Services Club certificate. Please come out and give them a warm welcome.

If you have kids, the playground is nearby and they had a blast last year playing. Some of the kids also kicked a soccer ball around and played frisbee. We even had a couple of guys bring out their HF rigs and set up their portable stations and show off.

If you have a new "ham" toy from the recent hamfest, ebay, etc., feel free to bring it out and show it off, or get some assistance with getting it programmed, or using it. I'm sure there'll be someone there that will know.

Also, for those of you that ordered the Nixa ARC "Hamster" shirts, Rod Kittleman, K0ADI, will have them at the picnic and we'll be getting those to you. Please submit your check or exact cash for your shirt at that time, cost is $15 per shirt. We do have several extras (larger sizes) if anyone is interested. We will try to have those there as well.

Looking forward to seeing you all Saturday!
