Fifth Saturday Breakfasts

In any month that has a Fifth Saturday, we select a location for a no-host breakfast. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet and socialize with other members and friends. Free to bring any current project(s) you may be working on, show it off, or ask for help. Spouses, family, friends, and guests are always welcome. Watch this site and the LCARC Email reflector for announcements.

Castle Rock Thursday Net

Every Thursday, 6:30 pm on 2m and 440 frequencies. For neighborly communication and emergency preparedness around the Castle Rock and Skyline area. Also welcomes all amateurs able to reach K6FB. Check in to this net for more information.

American Legion Post 380 Net (Thursdays)

Every Thursday, 7:30 PM on 2m and 440 frequencies. The American Legion is always looking for interested amateur radio operators who are also veterans to join their ranks. Check in to this net for more information.

Member's Meetings

The Board would like to resurrect the club meetings but needs help. The Club needs interesting topics and speakers. If you have an idea for a topic or a speaker, or if you have a meeting room to offer, please contact one of the Board members -- see the BOD list to the left on this page.

Director's Meetings

These meetings are held for a few minutes at the 5th Saturday Breakfast. If you wish to bring buisness before the Directors or the Club, please contact the Club's President (see his email address to the left).

Holiday (Christmas) Party

This traditional event is a no host event at a local restaurant. We meet to give thanks for family and friends, and enjoy a nice meal among the camaraderie of your fellow hams and their families. Plan to join us in early December. If you are interested in joining the party committee please see any Director. Watch this site and the LCARC Email reflector for announcements.

Members Picnic

Each summer we schedule a potluck and picnic. This is a good opportunity to socialize with members, spouses, and family members. We are always on the lookout for locations and someone to help organize this event. Are you interested in helping out? Please contact any Director. Watch this site and the LCARC Email reflector for announcements.
