Perseids Meteor Shower Aug. 11 - 12
This is a fun side trip, not radio related, to break the dog days doldrums of mid-summer.
All we are doing is to go out to a remote location, at high altitude, and watch the Perseids
meteor shower. Anyone is invited. Bring your spouse and/or kids/dog/cat, whatever.
The location will be between War Eagle mountain and Cinnabar mountain above Silver City
at an altitude of about 7600 ft. It will most likely be rather cool during the night, so be prepared for temps in the 40's.
This is a "bring your own" event, so bring everything you think you will need to spend an
overnight in a remote location. Food, water, adult beverages, sleeping bag, etc.
As a reminder, this will be a REMOTE location. The road is not that great. You should plan
on using a reasonably high clearance vehicle such as a pickup, SUV, Jeep, etc.
You can probably use a passenger car, but you won't like it very much.
You have been warned!
Meetup for the group caravan will be at Dan's Ferry Service on Walter's Ferry at
4:00PM Saturday, Aug. 11th. See you there!
Club Picnic Aug. 18th
Every year we have a club picnic, to meet outside , enjoy the weather and
visit with friends. This year it will be held at the Oregon Trail Church.
To reach the church take exit 25, turn right then left. You can see the church
from the freeway exit. We will start meeting at 10:00 and start cooking
around 11:30 or so. The club supplies the meat and buns, we request
participants bring a side of some kind to share with everyone.
There will be no meeting Aug. 15 at the Sunrise Cafe for the month
