Due to the current Covid surge, the Columbia Amateur Club is not planning for a group event. However, anyone interested in participating at an outdoor location is welcome to meet at Sesqui State Park camping site 69. You can set up a station and operate or just look at what others are doing. It will be more of a fun day than a typical WFD. For more information contact Jim Lathan W4JLP by email at W4JLP@arrl.net
