## THE BIG DAY - GW SOTA
ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW:
Just over a week and most of us will be calling ‘CQ SOTA’ from a hilltop in Wales. I’m also hoping to hear the phrase ‘S2S S2S’ across the VHF/UHF & HF band Wales aren’t the only SOTA group having some fun on this weekend, GI/EI SOTA & GM OARC are also out on the hills playing radio, so let’s see if we can fill our logs with S2S contacts and speak to some really good friends - make hay while the sun shines!!
Saturday 8th July 2023 is the big day where we will take part in a S2S party in the morning and then meet up for a ‘Hog Roast’ and gathering in the afternoon. The gathering will commence at 3pm normal time at the following location in Mid-Wales:

This link will take you to the field gate entrance where you will enter through the gate and park on the left hand side in the field. Please take your time entering the field, its not perfectly flat!
I’m sure you will spot the marquee’s, look for high flying Welsh & SOTA flags blowing high in the wind there will also be a toilet on site!
Can I please ask everyone to bring your own drinks - we will have tea, coffee and water available, but that is all. Also, I only have 12 chairs, so if you want to sit down, please bring your own chair just in case!
I’m hoping the wx will be on our side, nevertheless, I’m sure everyone will have a good time chatting and meeting each other if it isn’t.
The food will be served at 4pm normal, so please try and be there by that time. One Hog roast bun each with a side plate of potatoes. We will also have macaroni pasta for any vegetarians attending.
I believe a couple want to camp, I will send you a pin to this location privately - so keep checking your messages
I’d like to finish off by saying - If anyone else would like to call by from this group and say hi, please do so. Use the location link above - it would be great to meet more activators and chasers at this event!
I wish everyone a safe journey, a safe ascent to the activators climbing mountains and I look forward to seeing you all very soon!
