Saturday, August 11th is the date of the 2018 ACARTS Picnic. The picnic was a great success last year, so this year’s picnic will be pretty much the same. The Picnic will be start around 4:00 p.m. with the food served around 5:00 p.m., and will again be held at the Jefferson Township Park on Webster Road, east of New Haven. The club will provide the hamburgers and hotdogs, chips, and drinks. Salads, desserts, and other goodies will be a pot-luck carry-in.
The ACARTS Picnic is a family affair, so plan on bring your spouse, kids, or grandkids. Let me know if you have any ideas for activities to be held with the picnic. Members of ACARTS, the Fort Wayne Radio Club, and the Fort Wayne DX Association are invited, with a special invitation to the new hams in the area. The picnic provides an excellent opportunity to have casual conversations and get to know your fellow hams and their families.
I need to get a head count of those members and guest will be attending, so we know how much food to purchase. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if you plan to attend and how many guests will be with you. Please let me know no later than Tuesday, August 7th.
An article giving more details, as well as a map to show the park location will appear in the August issue of the Allen County HamNews.
I hope to see you there.
