From Saturday, Jan. 27 to Sunday, Jan. 28 from 11 a.m. to 11 a.m., a small contingency of vans and recreational vehicles were parked in the city lot at NE Seventh and Harney. Using generators, the operators began to make contact with other groups around the country participating in Winter Field Day.
