Please be there by 0800, so everyone can order at the same time. This is a time for members, non-members, prospective members, anyone who may be interested in Ham Radio, to come together and have breakfast and chat, and get to know each other, and possibly learn about the hobby, in an informal setting. It is not a meeting, but sometimes there might be discussions about club business, or ideas to bring up at the club and board meetings. Right now, it's about the only time we can actually get together in person to socialize. We always have a good time.
