FL AM Luncheon – Nov 4, 2017 at N4GUI

Posted: November 5, 2017 by nz1q in Group Meeting

Maury reports the Rum Cake brought by Stan, WA4NFY  and Mary, the expert baker of the highly sought after dessert, was fantastic as always.  The Bubbly, once again provided by Rodger, K1HH was a real treat and always a big hit with the AM’ers.   Maury’s pulled pork disappeared and was a great success.  Maury started smoking the pork at 4 AM and was well worth the early morning start.  Another successful Florida AM Group luncheon.

Many thanks to Maury and Katherine for hosting this years FLAM Group luncheon.  Hope to see everyone next year.

FLAM Group Luncheon, June 2017

Posted: June 18, 2017 by nz1q in Group Meeting

The group met at Caledonia Brewery in Dunedin FL.  There was plenty of food for lunch and refreshments from the micro brewery run by Dave Dally’s son.  Dave, N2ORL was a wonderful host telling us about the brewery, his beautifully restored 1939 Ford “Business Coupe” and he also brought some vintage equipment that found new homes.

A special thanks to Mauri for helping to make the arrangements and Lona for bringing/organizing the food.

This is the annual Florida AM Group’s informal get-together and will be held at a new craft brewery located on Main Street in Dunedin, Fl, just north of St Pete on the Gulf of Mexico.

This micro brewery is owned and operated by Dave Dally, W2ORL. Dave invites us to have our summer outting at his brewery, which has been newly opened to the public for the last several months . He will accomodate us with one table set aside for a radio “tail gate” and plenty of seating for the group. The outting will include our usual pot-luck arrangements.

Bring your other half and RSVP to Lona, please.

We need everyone who will attend to contact Lona via e-mail to confirm so the appropriate amount of pulled pork and chicken can be ordered. Bring a “cover dish” as usual. Needed are appitizers, salads, deserts and anything that goes with BBQ pulled pork and chicken sandwiches.

The brewery has craft beer, wine, cider and water. No food served as of yet. On the agenda is fellowship and food.

Many thanks to Lona, W1GUD and Mauri, N4GUI for working on the arrangements for this year’s outting. I’m sure we will hear more from Lona on the Sunday morning net. We also need to hear from those attending so the appropriate amount of BBQ is ordered by Lona – do it now!
