Field Day

D.E.A.R.S. will be participating in Field Day on Saturday, June 25 – Sunday June 26.

All Disney Cast Members and anyone visiting Walt Disney World this weekend with an interest in amateur radio is invited to attend.

Our location will be on the field behind Reedy Creek Fire Station #4. This is across from Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort close to Disney Springs.

We are planning to meet for breakfast on Saturday morning at 8 am at the Golden Corral located at Vineland and 535 next to Bahama Breeze. We will head to the field after breakfast. We should arrive sometime between 10:00 and 10:30 am.

We would love to see everyone come and participate. Bring whatever radios, antennas and other equipment you think you might need to enjoy this event. Stay overnight if you dare!

We will be providing a picnic dinner for the whole family. Bring everyone around 5:00 pm on Saturday. We are planning to eat about 6:00 pm. The Club will be providing the hamburgers, hot dogs and possibly pork along with the needed buns and condiments. We will also provide some water and soda.

We are asking everyone to bring a side dish if possible to round out our meal. I believe Daisy is planning to provide some fabulous dessert items for us. I can hardly wait!! Yum!

Invite any friends and family you know who may be interested in learning more about ham radio. We would like to showcase the fun and excitement of our hobby.

I hope to see everyone there!!
