strongly encourage attendance by as many young folks as possible. Our
sessions will include active participation by our young hams to help us
determine what brought them into ham radio, why they like it and what
aspects they don't like. Our Gaylord venue was chosen to centralize
travel for everyone, as we expect attendees from both the upper and
lower peninsulas of Michigan. (Special thanks to Pastor Norm and the
members of Mt. Hope Church for hosting our event).
This will be a fun event and include a Special Event Station as well.
