Field Day 2015 - Think Spring!

With all the snow and ice out our windows, it can be comforting to imagine that some day...some day...we’ll be able to actually see our yards again, we’ll be able to make those antenna repairs, and yes, we’ll be able to put together another winning Field Day! Field Day is without doubt DELARA’s premier event, mixing contesting, emergency preparedness, GREAT food and friends into one eventful weekend!  Our typical March meeting is the first set aside for planning Field Day activities, and we have some planning to do. With the retirement of our very successful and fearless leaders Sandy and Gary, we find ourselves at an opportune point in DELARA history. It’s easy to say, “Yeah we have Field Day in the box- got it down! No need to get crazy with this!”  But that complacency can lead to problems...and problems during the weekend will make it NOT as fun! We’ve always been able to balance fellowship with the contester’s drive for more points and a big win, and we need to keep that balance. But the big win part doesn’t just happen. It takes planning that needs to begin now!  So if you’re one of our many Field Day champions, now’s the time to get involved!
