We will need volunteers to man the caption, as well at at least 10 people to man the parade. This year two other radio clubs will be participating in the event with us - the Gopher radio club and the Minneapolis radio club. You do not have to be in any club to help out with either event. Just show up. The field day location this year will be in the southeast parking lot of the Blaine City Hall. Currently we are planning on running a 2A station. We especially appreciate any help with tower setup, late night radio operation, and tear-down

Setup for field day begins on Friday, June 24th at 5:00 PM.

Tear-down begins on Sunday, June 26th at 1:00PM

Rules for this year are available at the ARRL website: Rules.
