Hi folks -

I coordially invite you and your friends and family to our joint OUARC/SCARS ARRL Field Day 2008 at the Reaves Park pavilion. Field Day is our biggest event of the year, and we're pleased to team up with SCARS this year to bring this great ham radio demonstration to the City of Norman. Even if you've never attended a meeting, even if you don't hold a ham radio license, you are welcome to come out to Reaves Park anytime Saturday afternoon or evening and see what ham radio is all about! Visitors of all ages are welcome. You can even get on the air under the guidance of a control operator. And yes, there will be food!

The ARRL's Field Day site is here: http://www.arrl.org/contests/announcements/fd/
The W5NOR Field Day site (with map) is here: http://w5nor.org/Field%20Day%202008.html
Pictures from previous Field Days are available on the OUARC Facebook group.

Our VP-elect, Jerrod F., has been heavily involved in coordination for this event. This past week, I joined SCARS president Bill Lockett at the Norman City Council Meeting as Mayor Rosenthal declared this week "Amateur Radio Week" in the City of Norman.

To those in OUARC - Thank you in advance to those who have volunteered to cover the night shift. However, we can use help at all times of day between 1 p.m. Saturday and 4 p.m. Sunday. You may volunteer for as long or as short a time as you wish. If you haven't worked a contest before, don't worry, it's easy, and we'll show you what to do! And please don't forget to help with setup (which begins 8 a.m. Saturday) and tear down (after 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon)! We need all hands on deck to make this event a success!

See you there!

"The reward of the young scientist is the emotional thrill of being the first person in the history of the world to see something or to understand something... The reward of the old scientist is the sense of having seen a vague sketch grow into a masterly landscape." -- Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin
