The Lewisville Amateur Radio Association (LARA) announces that the Go Box Challenge is back for 2021. It will be held on May 22, 0900 - 1300 at L.L. Woods Park, Pavilion #1, 1000 Arbour Way, Lewisville, TX 75077.
Surely you are proud of your Go Box and would like to show it off. This is the place to do it. If you would like to establish an antenna there is plenty of open area adjacent to the pavilion.
Last but certainly not least, there will be a People's Choice Award for the first three places.
Even if you don't have a Go Box, come out and see what other operators have done and take those good ideas home and make it happen.
Direct any questions to LARA at W5LVC.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Held the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 5:30 P.M. Meetings are open for all members to attend.

Effective with the May 18 meeting we will return to in-person meetings. Due to restrictions still in place by the City of Lewisville the meeting location is changed to Spring Creek BBQ at 571 E. Round Grove Rd. in Lewisville. Meeting time remains at 7:00 PM. It should go without saying that we should do all we can to patronize this local business for allowing us use of their facility.
The presenter at the May meeting will be Frank KG5ZNJ talking about getting started in various digital modes.
LARA will hold an in-person field day this year. In addition, the rules provide that individuals can work from their QTH similar to what was done for the 2020 event. The in-person portion of the event will be held at 4611 Birch St. Flower Mound TX 75028
The MS Bike Ride to be conducted on May 1 needs Amateur Radio Communicators. More details on the Public Events page.
We are again gathering for in-person breakfast. Join us at the Main Street Cafe, 208 E. Main St. in Lewisville at 8:00 AM on Saturdays. Masks are required.
June 26-27 Stay tuned for specifics. It will be in-person this year for sure.
