Thoughts about Field Day 2020

small_ARA_Logo.pngDuring the 6/2/2020 business meeting all newly elected officers and directors were installed into their respective positions (click here for a list of the directors and officers). 

A lively debate took place concerning what the club felt was the approrpiate to handle Field Day 2020 -- after much thought, about 2/3 of those checked in determined we would feel better holding Field Day at our home QTH, rather than holding it as a group.

The remaining 1/3 was split between holding a modified, yet traditional Field Day, or had no comment at all. Because of the uncertainty of the Covid-19 coronavirus, we determined the best plan of action was to look at the issue one more time during out next regularly scheduled meeting.
