2020 Traffic Net Picnic Canceled
The Coronavirus has forced us to cancel this year's (2020) picnic.
A date of October 2, 2021 has been set for next year's picnic to be held at the same location in Rockdale. All other arrangements remain the same
If you would like a refund on your BBQ reservation please email Jim W5IM and he will refund your reservation. Other wise he will carry it over to the 2021 date.
