Special Event Dates for 2021

At the MPARC Board meeting in February the planned dates for special events this year were decided upon. We are looking forward to having our events again this year after having to move them around due to COVID-19 in 2020.

The Walter Reed Special Event will be held on Saturday April 17, from 10am-3pm at Walter Reed’s Birthplace on Hickory Fork Rd. Click Here for a map to the event location. Set-up will begin around 8:30 am so we can try to be on the air by 10am.

The Sally Tompkins Special Event is set for Sunday July 25, from 10am-3pm at Williams Wharf Landing on Williams Wharf Rd (Route 614) in Mathews County. Click Here for a map to the event location. Set-up will begin around 8:30am to try and be on the air at 10am.

There is not a date set yet for the Captain John Smith special event, normally held later in the year. It is tentatively scheduled for sometime in November, and will be announced once a date is finalized. The location will be at Abingdon Park, next to Abingdon Elementary School on Powhatan Drive in Hayes.

We hope to work many stations at our special event stations this year. More information about planned operating frequencies will be announced as the event dates get closer.
