It's time again for the annual BARA Picnic at Lake Township Park. The date will be August 11 at 6:00 pm. Due to the Berrien County Youth Fair, the picnic is being held one week earlier, the second Thursday of the month instead of the third Thursday. Please come and bring a dish to share (salad, casserole, fruit, vegtable, dessert, etc.). Your BARA Board is supplying the hot dogs and beverages. We will be featuring the on-foot fox hunt again. It's a lot of fun and gets us up and moving after enjoying a great meal. We meet at the pavilion on the north end of the park by the fishing pond. Enter the park via the north drive and go to the stop sign. Turn left and follow the road to the pavilion, which will be on the left. You can't miss it. Look for vehicles with antennas and call sign license plates! Hope to see you there!

The August Breakfast will be August 27, 8:30 am at Romas Pizza Restaurant in Bridgman on Red Arrow Hwy just north of the traffic light. Great breakfasts at reasonable prices. All are welcome, BARA members or not.

September Meeting: Annual BARA Board elections and ACC preparations.
Your Executive Board members have all served on the Board for at least five years. Some are hoping to take a break or to change office. New people on the Board can bring in new ideas and perspectives on the club operation. Will you consider running for an office on the Board?

October Meeting: Homebrew Show and Tell.
Bring something you made to show and tell about at the October meeting. It could be radio related or not. Have you built a kit, gadget, tool, or device of interest to the club? Bring it to the meeting on October 20. Who knows? There may be a prize for the best homebrew project (as voted on by those at the meeting).
