Sunday November 16th - 11:00AM - 2:00PM - Fall Frolic Picnic by West Palm Beach Amateur Radio Group
This is open to everyone, club member or not. There is no charge to attend or eat, but a donation jar for guests or members so inclined is available. Our world famous chef, Jerry Grant, has agreed to do the cooking again. The burgers are great, the cheese fresh, hot dogs all beef, and plenty of condiments and sides. Anyone wishing to bring a favorite side dish is welcome. Some of our members make the best beans, cakes, cobblers, salads, and assorted dishes of any place in the county. (Maybe we should open our own gourmet restaurant and call it "Sides"?).

Plenty of cold water and sodas. If you prefer some something more "adult" you are welcome to BYOB. The club is not permitted to serve alcoholic beverages but you are allowed to bring your own.

There will be a Fox Hunt and a Rabbit Hunt so come armed with a 2M HT and a directional antenna if you have one. We will have a short instruction period for those who are new to "hunting".

The location is once again the Island Pavilion in John Prince Park. Come in the main entrance from Congress and just stay on that road until it ends. You will pass the big pavilion (where we do field day) and there will be a bend in the road and you will pass the Sheriff's station and at the end there are 2 pavilions on the left. We are in the last one. So come on out and have some good food and fun.

Wednesday November 19th - 7:00PM - West Palm Beach Amateur Radio Group

One of the biggest names in Ham Radio will be coming to us live via Skype. Someone almost every Ham has heard at least once and some frequently. You do not want to miss this one! Note it is on the 3rd Thursday to not conflict with Thanksgiving dinner preparations the following week.
