On November 18, we will operate from Oracle State Park to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Arizona State Parks system. This is a lovely park located in the town of Oracle. We have reserved the group area which has two large picnic ramadas with AC power, BBQ grills, shade trees, and a separate parking area. There is an admission charge of $7 per vehicle at the park. K4WBR is planning to bring lots of food and drink to make this a social event suitable for the whole family. This is the same date as El Tour de Tucson, in which many OVARC members participate, so we will have lunch around 1300 and later to allow El Tour participants to make it to the park. We have submitted Special Events listings to QST,, and and we have submitted a request for special callsign K7T, which we have used for Field Day for years.

For those of you who have not been to Oracle State Park, the Kannally Ranch House tour is a nice to visit.  The Kannally Ranch House was built in 1929-1932 and is of Mediterranean Revival Style with Moorish influences, patterned on Italianate villas of the 1920s.  You can tour the house yourself or take the guided tour at 11:00am.
