2013 Club Activities
September 28 at 7:00 AM - Fox Hunt inside of Fiesta Mall
Steve, N7CPU reports that Superstition ARC is going to have a hidden transmitter hunt inside of air-conditioned Fiesta Mall in Mesa at 7:00 AM. Fiesta Mall is at the corner of Southern and Longmore in SW Mesa.
Everyone will meet at the food court at 7:00 AM sharp.
The entrance near the food court is on the west side of the mall and south of the parking garage. The easiest entrance would be on the west side off Alma School Rd, just north of the US60 ramp.
Prizes will be announced, but we have 2 or 3 planned, with 1st place being a $25.00 gift certificate and others being all the materials needed to build a tape measure yagi with printed plans.
K7A USS Arizona Tribute Special Event Station
K7A will be operated from the Superstition SuperFest™ hamfest grounds in Queen Creek, at Schnepf Farms.
Lost Dutchman Marathon Sunday, Feb 16
Visit the mcecg.net web site to sign up to provide amateur radio support for this annual event, a 26-mile marathon starting at Peralta Trailhead in the Superstition Mountains east of Gold Canyon, passing along Highway 60 and looping through Gold Canyon, back to Highway 60 past the west face of the Superstitions, then into Apache Junction and finishing at Prospector Park in A.J.
Lost Dutchman Legend Special Event Saturday, Feb 22
The club has a radio outing every February for one day up State Route 88, North Apache Trail. In 2013, we set up in the north end of the Goldfield Ghost Town, near the church. That didn't draw a significant crowd to our tables, but with better signage, directed at the person who knows nothing about the "ARRL" and the like, we may draw more people.
We may have to face the fact that we don't have an old 1883-style storefront from the horse-and-buggy days to run our sales pitch from! :)
We do have the K7D callsign reserved for the day.
Club Pot-Luck Picnic Sunday, March 9
The picnic is open to club members and their guests.
In 2012 we had some games, in 2013 we did the club's first hidden transmitter hunt, perhaps we can do both this time around with advance planning!
We will shoot for the Dove Ramada in Red Mountain Park. Truth be told, we could have had it in 2013, had we looked at the date on the reservation slip that kept us out of there in 2013. That ramada was reserved for part of the time we wanted to use it -- the day before!
The idea is to reserve the date on your calendar, sign up at the meeting or otherwise RSVP with the number of guests you plan to bring, and list what dish you plan to bring, and leave your name and phone number for us to reach you. We need to organize and determine who is willing to perform the RSVP data collection and become the contact point for this task.
We want to thank Gene, K8WQ and wife Jo Wilson, for always being there in the past, but we really should be thinking seriously about someone new who wants to organize the picnic. Your job is to determine how much meat (hamburgers, hot dogs and brats), buns and condiments we need to get, plates and plastic "silverware," lemonade or soft drinks and the like, and who is going to cook it on the grill. --Larry, WB7C
