Summer is here and it's time for our annual Meet and Greet. We have selected a perfect location - the Bass Pro Shops in Rancho Cucamonga.

We will meet for lunch at the BPS restaurant at noon, followed by Amateur Radio testing at 2:00PM. For those interested, we will be holding an informal meet and greet in the parking lot after testing. When we are not busy with lunch or testing, most of us will be hitting the store and emptying our bank accounts.

If you are not familiar with the BPS, they have one of the finest selections of outdoor gear, boats and boating gear, and, of course, firearms and related equipment. The opportunity to visit the store and stock up on stuff you need, is enough reason to join us.

IMPORTANT NOTE:If you plan on attending, we need to know so we can reserve enough space at the restaurant and for testing. Post your attendance below. The testing will take place in the parking lot. The best way to locate us is to join us for lunch or meet us at about 1:45PM at the restaurant and follow us to our location. We will also be monitoring the Keller Peak Repeater (146.385 + PL. 146.2) and simplex 145.570. You can also look for our banner. If you have any questions, PM DaveK.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's smiling faces again :lol:

The OAUSA meet and greets are always a fun time - getting a chance to check out all the different vehicles and the various ham radio configurations - a pertect way to get some new ideas or to hone current projects.

I had a fantastic time yesterday at the OAUSA Meet & Greet at Bass Pro Shop in Rancho Cucamonga. I had the opportunity to see folks I usually only meet over the radio, or on-line, so it was nice to match faces to the voices. Of, course, lunch at the restaurant was good, too - I always enjoy good food with good friends, and yesterday filled the bill.

As we usually do, we offered amateur radio testing - and we end up with 4 new hams, including one who took all three levels, successfully, earning his Extra ticket. Congratulations to all off our new radio amatuers !!!

Here are a few pics of the Meet & Greet:

It was great to meet everyone at the Meet and Greet. I'm sure glad I did not bring my Jeep Wrangler TJ as I might have felt out of place :o
All kidding aside, it was a pleasure to see all those nice Toyotas!!
