I thought Field Day was about beating your rival club and drinking beer.

I dunno. I've never done one (And my neighbor, who owns a guitar shop and is a ham is going to lace into me for not doing field day, he says it's the duty of every ham to be active for field day, to support the local clubs).

Last year, a local club held their field day at a smoked BBQ restaurant.
