Friday Morning Coffee at Dee-Ann’s Tea Room is no more…

For many years, many of our club members would meet at Dee Ann’s Tea Room for coffee and breakfast (and just social chatting) on Friday mornings at 8:30AM. Unfortunately, Dee-Ann has closed the doors

Our new Friday morning meeting place is Beach Front Bistro, 16011 Boat Basin Road, still starting at 8:30am on Fridays.

Azalea Parade

Always Saturday prior to Memorial Day

Pelican Bay Amateur Radio Club has been participating in organizing the start of the Azalea Parade since 1980. It’s a fun service to our community and a good way to keep your radio skills sharp. If you have your technician license and a hand-held radio, be sure to add the next Azalea Parade to your calendar!

This year, due to COVID-19, the event was postponed until July 17th. As the date approached, we weren’t sure of the state and the county would be “opening up”, but we all planned to be ready. When the date came, we had two Net Control stations, and ran the event using the Incident Command System (ICS) model so that we could practice formal message handling.

We have pictures!

Holiday Brunch

A fun get together during the holidays has been held at SeaQuake Brewery in Crescent City during the past two years, with members, friends and family. But, in 2020, we’ll be having the celebration at Beach Front Bistro, 16011 Boat Basin Road. We will have a $10.00 gift exchange, which always brings a lot of laughter. This is still on the calendar for December 5th, please mark your calendar to hold that date.
