Last year both El Paso Radio Clubs (W5ES and K5WPH) hosted a joint club “ARRL Ham Radio Picnic” at Memorial Park with the ARRL West Gulf Division Director and Vice Director, and it was a huge success!


Another ARRL El Paso Picnic is being planned for Saturday, August 26 at Memorial Park.


This year we will again be joined by the ARRL West Gulf Division Director, Dr. David Woolweaver (K5RAV), and the ARRL West Gulf Division Vice Director, John Robert Stratton (N5AUS).


This is a great opportunity to come out and meet the ARRL Directors, as well as enjoy a great picnic with the other El Paso area hams.  The location is great, with lots of grass, shade trees, and play area for the kids.  Make plans to attend this year!


Stay tuned here, at the club meetings, and on the evening nets for more details as they become available.
