The Kirkreit Summer Picnic is held for the membership and their guests every year at a location in or around Tacoma.

The 2019 Summer Picnic will be held on Sunday, August 25, at Fort Steilacoom Park, Shelter #1, in Lakewood.  The park is right across Steilacoom Blvd. from Western State Hospital, our Field Day site.

We'll set up between 11AM and noon, with the picnic proper extending from noon to about 4PM.  The Club will provide grilled hamburgers, franks and chili.  Participants are encouraged to bring pot luck salads and desserts.

The Picnic is always a great opportunity for socializing; and if the weather and ionospheric conditions permit, we may set up for some low power operating.

By popular demand, we'll repeat an activity introduced last year:  a game of ham radio trivia.  Last time we divided into five teams of several persons each and competed to rack up points with answers to questions about famous hams, FCC rules, elementary electronic theory, etc.  No doubt there will be fabulous prizes and kilobytes of fame (if anyone takes pictures).
