We need several people to cover the three days of the show. Volunteers who arrive before 7:30 each morning will receive a mouth-watering country breakfast; complimentary, or course. Later, lunch will also be served to the volunteers. Please help with this project. THANKS!

Due to accessibility issues, we have changed our meeting location from the Salvation Army to the Lee Company, which is only a couple of blocks away. The meeting time is still 6:30 on the first Tuesday of each month. Click the Meeting tab at the top for directions.
Nelson has made a list of nets he attends and they have been posted here for others to view and participate in them. Click the Local Nets link in the menu.
The club will be volunteering by ringing bells and collecting donations for the Salvation Army this holiday season.
Jeri has suggested a project. If enough people are interested, we can have the boards made. Click on the Club Projects link in the menu.
Suggestions are welcome for other project ideas.
The club will be participating in the ARRL Field Day competition on June 25-26.
The club will set up at in the Kicker parking lot next to Boomer lake.
This event will be fun for those Hams wanting to compete as well as those who want to operate more casually. This is also a great way showcase amateur radio to the public and find people interested in becoming amateur radio operators.

It was reported that our members did a great job of managing the sell of tickets and administrating the entrances to the show grounds.
The show happens annually. More information can be found here: http://www.oklahomathreshers.org
