Finally, after a 2 year hiatus due to Covid, our Ham Picnic will be taking place on July 17th at Low Island.  We are SO looking forward to seeing you all there!  (directions from the Swing Bridge below)

As always, this will be a potluck picnic, so please be sure to bring a dish to share with everyone.  Hot or cold it is up to you.  Of course, if you are making a dish with mayonnaise in it, it may be best to wait to mix it up.  The club will once again be providing coffee and tea, water and some soft drinks - if you have a special preference please bring it with you. 
As in other years, there will be tickets sold for prizes, and we would greatly appreciate any donations you can make toward this.  
I will have masks on hand for those who would prefer to wear them, and we will have the tables spaced out as much as possible given the space we have.  If at all possible, please let us know if you are going to be able to make it so we can plan accordingly.  Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you!!

The Manitoulin Amateur Radio Club appreciates all the support that the amateur
community has given us over the year as members and in general the donations
we have received. Now that the club has entered the digital information
technology world, we have created a donation page on our website. This makes
things easier if you live afar from the club and wish to donate. We appreciate all
the members paying their dues and others that have donated to the upgrades we
have done to the repeater and equipment. By no means is there any obligation to
donate to the club. This page was created by Rusty VE3WVA as our webmaster
that if someone wished to donate it would be easy to do so. Again, we appreciate
all the support amateurs have given us throughout the years. We look froward for
you to participate in any club activities and look froward to hearing you on the air.
Happy hamming
