River Radio Campout 2016
 (Pateros WA.)       POST MESSAGE
River radio Camp out   
On May 21 2016 (always the weekend before Memorial Day) Ham operators, and their friends and families attended the annual traditional River Radio Campout celebrating our continuously running 16th year. Our campout began as a one afternoon potluck allowing hams to “eyeball” friends they had been communicating with on the local 
North Central Washington Repeaters.

For the last 3 years our numbers have grown smaller and we have leveled out at about 30 folks attending. This year we had 36 attending the potluck. This was the year for desserts. 

Around 16 overnight campers some were there camping for 4 days or more. Our Friday night Hot dog feed had about 16 attendees.

Late Friday and early Saturday the rain tried to dampen our spirits, causing many to retire early. Saturday’s early morning rain pretty much ruined our Tailgating session but later in the day a few items started showing up for sale.


The PUD had earlier in the year planted about 3 or 4 rows of greenery and Trees along the river bank. In the next few years we will have plenty of Shade, or trees to tie antennas to . These plantings moved us back from the river a few feet so we lost some space but it will be nice in the future.


About three years ago we had our first Sunday morning breakfast. This year the generators came out powering waffle irons and such. Hot coffee, Waffles, Biscuits, Sausage Gravy, scrambled eggs, monkey bread, fruit and juice’s along with many more items to choose from ,trending to be a big hit.


Come join us next year

 (always the weekend before Memorial Day) A great outing for friends and family!

Thanks
