Marty has read the announcements

since Terry NĜGOI started the MAGIC net.

Terry asked Marty to come up with some

announcements for the net at that time.

2021.

Breakfasts and Luncheons.

This Saturday, June 13th, we will be trying out a... real...  live... in-person...

DMR Breakfast at Fat Nat's Eggs in St. Anthony Village.

The forecast calls for sunny weather with a high near 75 degrees :-).

I spoke to restaurant  management and learned they will open at 7:00 AM Saturday.

I will be there at the opening, but breakfast officially starts at 8:00 AM.

Due to COVID measures, seating will be limited. Behind the restaurant, there will be outdoor seating with 12 tables 

 Two persons per table, so maximum outdoor seating (in back) will accommodate only six persons.

In an attempt to extend capacity, Galen KC0BBK and I will  bring our motorhomes, additional

tables and a few chairs, so BYOC&T , Some of us may have to order take-out with this arrangement.
