Operating in adverse conditions is neither comfortable nor convenient.
Winter Field Day 2019 was held over the weekend of January 26-27th at the Miami County Emergency Management Agency from inside the EOC. Participants had the opportunity to utilize the brand new RACES room as well as fellowship with others while competing against one another for the title of making the most contacts.
They and others anxiously await an announcement of the winner which will be revealed at the February Club meeting.
