Field Day 2004 - Year of the rain!
The Aloha site gang kept comfortable in the "Aloha Yurt" that KA3RDZ secured for us through the Bear Creek Lake Park authorities. The Rampart Range gang kept warm in cars, campers, tents and under tarps! - Roger, WBØJNR

John Hewitt, KA3RDZ, will be coordinating our Aloha site effort this year. Thank you John!!
John will probably have a site set up at Bear Creek Lake Park, just south of Green Mountain
in Lakewood. John needs to reserve a site so please contact him so that he can make a
determination on how large of a space we need to reserve!
Email John at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We'll post more "Aloha Site" details, right here, once John has it all organized...
