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