Madison-Oneida Amateur Radio Club Pageradio tower image

Hi Folks,

I'm sorry I'm so late with this. Originally we had planned on having our picnic on September 19. Unfortunately I completed the paperwork in June,

but didn't get it filed until August and by then our Sunday was taken. They did have Sunday the 26th available, so I snagged it. If you'd like to gather

on Sunday, September 26th (day after Elmira/Horseheads) for a picnic at the Verona Town Park from 2-4pm that would be fantastic.

I already requested the day off. Please let me know if this is okay and I'll send in the deposit. They are holding the day for me tentatively until I confirm.

Thank you!

~Rick KC2ABQ
