In the ARRL propagation bulletin there is the note that the particles from the big solar eruption are expected to arrive at Earth around 10:00 UTC tomorrow, plus or minus 7 hours! there may or may not be a an effect on worldwide propagation.

Thanks for the great interest in attending our QRP IN THE PARK event at Kollen Park in Holland on Saturday! I would advise all of you to keep watching the K8DAA reflector and monitoring the 147.06 repeater on Saturday for any rain delays or event cancel. We usually will broadcast this decision by 1:00 pm Saturday on the reflector and on the repeater so folks will know if it is scrubbed or not.
Note: If cancelled, we will reschedule for the next day! (Sunday July 15th 3pm to dusk)
As you may know a recent cold front has set up shop into West Michigan this afternoon and has placed our region favorable for scattered showers for tonight and a possible rainy Saturday afternoon and evening. Already here at my QTH we received 3/4 inch of steady rain and it was very welcome to say the least. We could still use several more inches so I am no way complaining on the needed rainfall!
Thanks again for your interest and we hope the cold front will move off quickly and our event can continue as posted. Rest assured we will be monitoring the radar and will make the determination by 1:00 PM on Saturday.

- Hi Everyone!
QRP IN THE PARK IS A GO!! I should be at the park by 3:00 pm
or so, and setting up QRP camp. The Radar looks to be free from rain so we are going ahead with the event as planned!
We could use a few more items on the dessert/snack area.. So if you would like to stop by a mini-mart on your way out to the park and grab a bag of chips, 2 liter soda, etc that would be helpful!
Note: Our temperatures look to be in the 80's today so dress with light colored clothing and shorts!
See you there!
Grill time 6:00 PM
