During the last Tryon ARC meeting we had a vote passed to have field day dinner and breakfast catered by the wonderful and ham friendly restaurant Rob & Crystal’s – All American Diner. They will be taking care of all the cooking so we can do all the talking. They will be serving Dinner on the 22nd and breakfast on the 23rd.
For dinner we have the following choices:
- Prime Rib – $20
- Beer Battered Haddock – $15
- Chicken Cordon Blue – $15

Love it or hate it, Facebook is a great tool. It help us connect with friends and others who work, study and live around us and across the globe. It is almost like ham radio, but not as fun
It is my honor to announce that our Facebook page on may 10, 2013 reached the 100 likes milestone. Congratulations!!
On another note, our Twitter page has 550+ followers.
The Tryon ARC was featured on the WNYT website.
The article talks about our public service provided at the Cerrone 5k this past weekend and how events like these help us prepare for when (not if) disasters happen.
Special thanks to Steve Kuck K2ALS for coordinating the special events.
