I made the reservation for the pavilion this morning. Thanks to everyone
who contributed towards the rental! Some information:

Remember this is a QRP event. That means 10w on SSB and 5w on CW.

There are picnic tables, and a charcoal grill. You are welcome to bring
snacks or lunch/dinner if you'd like. I'll bring along a flat of water
bottles to share, anything beyond that is up to you!

There are bathrooms a short distance from the pavilion. There is a paved
walkway between the parking lot (where the bathrooms are located) and our

Preferably, no antennas in the trees. While the rangers have never given me
any trouble at Colt Creek for hanging small diameter wires in the trees,
since we are likely to have a bunch of antennas up, it would be best if you
brought some kind of self-supporting antenna. I'll be using an 80m end fed,
with a 20' fishing pole for support.

I am planning to get there around 12-12:30 after church. I will be paying
for the reservation when I get there - so if I'm not there yet, you can
just go ahead down to the main pavilion area on Lake Mac. We are in the
first non-enclosed pavilion on the west side of the lake, "Snowy Egret" I
think it's labeled. Here's a map:

I've also registered the club call for the contest. You are welcome to use
it (as long as someone else is not on that band already), or register for
your own skeeter number. Info on registering, rules, and the contest
exchange can be found at http://www.qsl.net/w2lj/

73, and see you on the 19th!
