Annual Summer Potluck - August 2nd @ 7pm

In place of our August meeting we will be having our Summer Potluck. Alan Fielding K7EFZ and Nancy Fielding KE7MUU have reserved their family park for the event. This is the same place we have had it the last few years. This open to anyone who would like to attend including family members. The club will provide meat, potatoes, soft drinks and water, and chips. Please bring a side dish or dessert. 

The park is at the base of the foothills near Goshen east of Firth. Google maps lists the address as 1114 Landfill, Shelley, ID
