July Meeting: Steak-Fry
Our July meeting, instead of a regular meeting, will be UARC's annual
steak-fry to be held Saturday, July 15. The cost is $15 for the full
steak dinner. Reservations must be made by July 8. Send a check to our
new Secretary, Tom Kamlowsky, WA7ZRG, at 4137 Clover Lane, Salt Lake
City, Utah, 84124.
Location is The Spruces Campground in Big Cottonwood Canyon, Area 7. The Big Cottonwood Road is State Highway 190. One route is to take the 6200 South exit from eastern I-215. Go east until the road merges with Wasatch Boulevard. Then watch for the signs pointing to Brighton and Solitude ski resorts. At about seven miles up the canyon watch for the turnoff to “The Spruces” on the right. Tell the folks at the entrance station that you are with the radio group in Area 7. If you get to the Solitude resort, you've gone too far.
Parking is limited, so car-pooling is recommended. If you arrive after all the parking places that go with Area 7 have been taken, your choices are (1) to park out on the highway and walk in to the site, or (2) pay for a parking spot inside the gate.
People typically start arriving about 2 P.M. Steak-cooking usually starts about 5 P.M. You may wish to bring your own table service if you would prefer something more sturdy than a paper plate.
Field Day: UARC will be entering the annual Field Day contest from a site near Payson Lakes. It is a great opportunity to combine radio operating with a family campout. Activity will go on from June 24 through 25. Go here for more information.
Thursday night meetings will resume on September 14.
