"Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers."
Greetings All! We now have tentative plans for our Annual ARMS Meeting to be held on September 10, 2022 in Oak Park Heights/Stillwater, MN.
Bruce K0GE and XYL Pamela are the hosts this year. Their address is 2977 Leyland Trl, Woodbury, MN 55125-3428 and contact information is; 651-578-0355. While in the area we can utilize the 147.120 repeater, + offset, no tone, to communicate with each other.
Tentative schedule is; anyone who is in the area Friday, the 9th, can gather at Bruce’s QTH in the afternoon for fellowship and maybe plan a supper outing for the evening.
Saturday, the 10th, everyone is welcome to come early to Bruce’s QTH where he will have snacks, bagels, and drinks available. Other short activities may be available if time allows and members are up to them. Around 11:30 we will leave to travel to Pizza Ranch for our meeting and lunch.
Pizza Ranch is located at 5785 Minnesota Ave N, Oak Park Heights, MN 55082. Some mapping programs call the location Stillwater, MN, but Pizza Ranch’s website lists it as Oak Park Heights. The plan is for the Annual Meeting to occur first, after everyone gathers there at 12:00 PM, and then eat.
After the meal Bruce has offered to take those interested down by the Waterfront in Stillwater. There are antique stores and malls, jewelry shops, and other sites there to partake of.
No hotels are reserved for us, so you are on your own. A google search turns up 8 hotels/motels with Woodbury addresses with many others nearby. AA0LF has reservations at a Choice Hotel in Oakdale, MN.
We look forward to seeing everyone there! If you need more information, contact Tom – AA0LF at: [email protected]
