2018 FIELD DAY NEWS

Effective immediately, Warren Kappenberg W2WGK has been appointed to the position of PARC Field Day Manager.  We are currently investigating alternate sites in Southold Town including the lodge at Bailey's Beach in Mattituck. A PARC team surveyed that site on October 24 and found it to be an excellent FD location, located right on a LI Sound Beach. We are currently negotiating with the Mattituck-Laurel Park District to secure the facility for our 2018 Field Day. The General Membership will have an opportunity to vote on this new site at the January 2018 meeting.
