On Saturday, 16 October 2021, the BARC had a dedication ceremony for their Radio Shack. The Shack was built during this past year by member volunteers and paid for by financial and material donations. There were 23 attendees consisting of members and their families. The Fall weather was fabulous for the gathering. Grills were brought by Amee & Nathan Tanksley (KI55ORQ & KI5EDP) and Kevin Wallace (KD5DZO) and the grill masters put their skills to work, yum! Brother Allen Brown (K5ANJ) offered the prayer for our meeting, food and fellowship. President Steve Shelton (AE5RU) gave the dedication comments. It was a great time to see the accomplishment of the completed Radio Shack, enjoy the delicious food and visit amongst friends. A special thanks to Joe Swafford (WA5NFC) for allowing BARC to place the Shack on his property. After everyone had cleaned up, George Cavaness (AG5CC) and Nathan Tanksley both set up stations at Jacksonport State Park and did Parks on the Air (POTA) activation. Several club members attended, and they met another operator from Beebe AR.
