The North American CW Weekend
1-3 June 2018
Fairview Park Marriott
Falls Church Virginia
by Don Lynch, W4ZYT

The 2018 CW Weekend will take place June 1-3 at the Fairview Park Marriott in Falls Church, Virginia. The weekend is open to all hams or others with an interest in CW or Morse code communication – FOC, CWOPS, SKCC, the Morse Operators Society, and FISTS. It is predominantly a social event and provides a great opportunity to connect with old friends, make new ones, and enjoy eyeball QSOs with folks you have worked on the bands for years.

We’ll begin with an informal pizza dinner on Friday evening, followed by a brunch Saturday morning hosted by Jim N3JT and Nina KE4PSV at their home in McLean. Dinner will follow that evening at Clyde’s in Tyson’s Corners. There will be a hospitality suite with refreshments at the hotel Friday and Saturday evenings. Sunday morning, many attendees meet informally at the hotel for a leisurely breakfast before heading home or on to other activities. It is likely Frank, W3LPL, will make a tour of his world class station available to those interested on Sunday afternoon.
