WCF SECTION PRESS RELEASE #20-32
WEST CENTRAL FLORIDA SECTION FIELD DAY CARAVAN GOING VIRTUAL FOR 2020
After much consideration, and in consultation with the members of the Field Day Caravan team, Darrell Davis KT4WX, Section Manager for the ARRL West Central Florida Section, has decided to cancel the in person ARRL West Central Florida Section Field Day Caravan for 2020, out of a sense of precaution to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The ARRL West Central Florida Section Field Day Caravan will be held virtually, most likely using teleconferencing, instead of conducting the caravan in its traditional format. Details of the virtual ARRL West Central Florida Section Field Day Caravan will be published on the Field Day Caravan webpage on the Section website which is at http://arrlwcf.org/wcf-special-events/west-central-florida-section-field-day-caravan/ as soon as they are finalized.
The ARRL West Central Florida Section Field Day Caravan has been conducted by the Section Manager and other section cabinet members since the creation of the ARRL West Central Florida Section in 2000. For many years the caravan was conducted by the Section Manager and the Section Emergency Coordinator. Starting in 2017, the caravan began to operate in multiple teams of two section cabinet members each to allow the caravan to visit all the Field Day sites on Saturday during daylight and evening hours.
