2022 SUMMER FIELD DAY
The BRARA Board asked for volunteers to coordinate the 2022 Summer Field Day.
Since there were none, and the event has different rules than WFD, the board decided to look into how the event could be handled from the shack. Please watch for updates. If you would like to step in and be the coordinator, please let any board member know.
