The CARATELS has become the "fun" group within CARA. Because we have noon-time meetings, most attendees do have grey hair and are, in fact, retired. However, in no way is the group restricted to grey hair and retirees. Don't attend if you don't want to have a good time. If you are free at noon once a month, come to CARATELS for an inexpensive lunch, some good laughs, interesting programs and plenty of time to eyeball and yak with fellow hams.
