Another Winter Field Day has wrapped up and the emphasis is clearly on the word winter! Saturday was very cold but sunny and fairly calm. However, by Sunday morning, it was very snowy and extremely windy, as a storm blew in to our area. However, our goal was achieved, to establish and operate stations in extreme winter weather conditions. An additional success was in public relations. A visit to our site by the Mayor of East Gwillimbury (where site is located) and visits from the Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Newmarket were a great exposure for the club. President Chris, V.P. Steve, Public Relations Director Eric, ARES Director Mike and other members conversed with the officials and I believe we made a good impression about what we have done and can do in the future for York Region. As for WFD results, I will post them when everything is finalized. I think we may be down a little on QSO's but I need to "crunch the numbers" to confirm.
