SJCARS Lopez BBQ
Saturday, September 14, 2019,  
Odlin County Park

Dear SCJARS members and Friends, 

Our next SJCARS monthly meeting will be the Lopez Club BBQ, which will be on Saturday, September 14. Mark your calendars! The BBQ will be at the Picnic Shelter at Odlin County Park on Lopez Island, from about 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, or as your schedules permit.  The park is lovely and is right on the beach.  Click here for a map from the ferry.  

The Summer Ferry Schedule calls for an early start, and potentially early departure for those coming from off-island:  
– Depart Orcas at 9:15 am arrive Lopez at 9:50 am
– Depart SJI at 8:30 am arrive Lopez at 9:50 am 
– Depart Anacortes at 9:35 am arrive Lopez at 10:15 am

Returning: 
– Depart Lopez at 2:40 pm arrive Anacortes at 3:20 pm
– Depart Lopez at 1:30 pm arrive Orcas at 1:45 pm
– Depart Lopez at 1:05 pm arrive SJI at 1:55 pm 
(Next inter-island boat leaves at 3:45 for those that wish to stay until then / explore more of Lopez.)

Lopez hams can provide transportation if you choose to walk-on the ferry, or for those who fly-in. 

This is a modified potluck: bring food to share and something of your own to grill.  Our Lopez contingent will provide a grill and a cooler with drinks. Bring something to grill and a side dish, salad or dessert to share. We encourage folks to prepare for a no trash event by bringing a reusable plate and utensils.  As always, friends and family are welcome!

We will table the usual meeting business items such as minutes approval and committee reports, and instead will simply touch on any upcoming calendar items and “Stories from your Shack”. Of course, bring you HTs and any interesting ham gear to show off.
The August minutes will be posted to the website.

Monitor Cady Mountain Repeater 146.700, Dup-, Tone 131.8 for coordination of rides to Odlin County Park from the ferry or airfield.    

73, 
Scott W7SLM
