The 2013 club Roster has been updated. In an attempt to get this document as accurate as possible I ask for you (if a club member) to download the last version and check for accuracy with your information. If corrections are needed please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. If your entry is missing please let me know that as well. Our goal is to get the roster up to date as quickly as possible, and as accurate as possible, your help is needed for this. If you do not know the roster password to open the document please shoot me an email and I will get it to you.
Aloha to one and all!
It’s almost here! Field Day that is. Finally!
Only five more days to go and for those who are going to participate those days will drag along very, very slowly like the countdown to Christmas when you were a kid. For those who have been planning and organizing this year’s event, these next few days are going to go by in a flash and we’ll be wishing we had more time just in case we forgot something.
We had a file size problem with website or the hosting service. I trimmed the photo sizes and I think this should work. Hopefully you will see an attachment. Posted on behalf of newsletter editor Milford, N3WYG.

An initial version of the 2013 roster is now available. I managed to dig myself into somewhat of a hole, which I am working my way out of. However, since I got behind updating the roster, not everyone is listed at the moment. I am going through all payments for 2013 but may still miss a few. If you do not receive an email by Friday afternoon with the password for the roster, and you have paid your 2013 dues, please send me an email at email@example.com so I can fix it.
Here is the May 2013 issue of the Ham Arundel News.
Greetings to one and all!
As of this date, there are only 51 days until the start of Field Day.
Do not visit the club’s Field Day website expecting to find up-to-date information about this year’s Field Day operation. Until further notice this BLOG will be the club's official source of Field Day 2013 information.
I think most, if not all of you, know by now that Field Day will be held the weekend of 21-23 June 2013.
Update: Thanks to those that participated in this event. Out of the three events we have had this year, this event proved to be the hardest as band conditions were not favorable. The weather was also a factor for us, as the nice weather had many people outside enjoying the day. The turn out was light at the clubhouse with 9 people showing up. We ended up working 22 counties out of 67 available. It was decided to end the contest early as more than 2 hours had past without anyone else showing up. The radio's were turned off at 5PM.
