We attempt to schedule the trips around other activites and try to land on contest weekends to maximize HF activity.
Tentative dates for camping trips:
July 13-14 Location – Dinkey Creek (old Camp Mar-y-Mac site) IARU HF World Championship
Aug 17-18 Location: TBD North American QSO Party
Oct 5-6 Location: TBD Califorina QSO Party
These trips are typically to to a “dry” campsite location which means no running water and no toilets. We try to find sites that can accomodate camp trailers and RVs for those of you don’t want to “rough it” too much.
If you are interested in going let Rob AE6GE know (firstname.lastname@example.org)

On Saturday March 2nd, 2019 the Clovis Amateur Radio Pioneers in conjunction with Fresno County ARES and members of the Tulare County Amateur Radio Club provided amateur radio communications support to the Sanger Blossom Trail 10K Run.
The ARRL September VHF Contest starts January September 19th at 11:00 am and ends January 20th at 8:00 pm PST.
The Clovis Amateur Radio Pioneers will be participating in the Club Gavel Competition for the contest. All club members are encouraged to operate the contest from their home, portable or mobile station as they would normally during the contest. When submitting your logs, add “Club: Clovis Amateur Radio Pioneers” to the log file and let us know that you participated in the contest. Your scores will count towards your normal individual or group awards and also be added to the club’s score to compete with other clubs in the area.
To thank members for their support throughout the year, CARP will host a Pot-Luck style Christmas Party. The main dishes of Ham, Turkey and Tri-tip will be provided by the club and side-dishes will be brought by attendees.
