RaRa Annual Picnic

July 14th, 11AM to 2PM

Mendon Ponds, Stewart Lodge


It's time for the annual RaRa Summer picnic! This is always a great occasion and an opportunity to enjoy good food, good company and play with radios! RaRa provides the food and beverages and we’ll have our club radio set up. Mark the date in your diary and come enjoy the fun!

If possible we will also organize a Radio Fox Hunt as in previous years. That is lots of fun and you don’t even need a ham license to take part. All you need is your 2M handheld so remember to bring that.

Feel free to bring any other radio gear that you would like to demonstrate or use – the more the merrier.

The picnic is at the Stewart Lodge in Mendon Ponds Park on Saturday July 14th (11.00 am – 2pm). For directions and the latest information please check the summer picnic page on our website. We will be setting up around 11:00am, the grill gets ready around noon and the burgers and hots will be ready soon after that. You are of course welcome to get there early to enjoy the day and each other’s company. We invite you to bring a dessert to pass so we can have an assortment of treats to choose from. In the past we have had some impressive goodies. Please take this opportunity to show off your culinary skills!

There will be door prizes—gift certificates for magazine subscriptions.
