It will likely be far easier to rent a park site than have Sierra College grant permission. Plus, I think Sierra College charges for parking.
Sierra College is a huge site. How much space do we need?
Besides Recreation Park in Auburn, there's also Regional Park out
here near me (off Dry Creek Rd.) Two large picnic areas that they
rent out, lots of trees, if we want something on the small side.
There's also the main part of the park, over by the Gym. Not sure
how one would rent that, but my wife's Quilt Guild holds their event
over there. They've also had large events - concerts, even a Ren
Faire, etc. out there.
Just a thought.

Additional info, the Mini Maker Faire should be
adjacent to the Sierra College Campus Center. We were at the
southwest corner in past years. Have yet to get word on where we
will be this year, but it is likely the same spot.

Count me in.
Perhaps consider the same spot as the Mini Maker Faire?
I have yet to visit the site myself, but Dr. Milazzo
provides photos that give an idea of the site:

Mark you calendars for Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) on
October 19th, 2019!
JOTA is THE biggest amateur radio operating event of the
year. Last year over 1.6 MILLION scouts participated in
152 countries. Truly an event you are going to want to be
a part of!
Our Club hosts a JOTA site each year. Last year we had
the good fortune to be at Beale Air Force Base as a part
of Scout Expo.
This year, I need your help! I am looking for suggestions
on where to setup up our station, W6BSA. The IDEAL site
should have the following features:
If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them. I
have left a message with Penyrn Park.
- Easy drive from the Sacramento Metropolitan area
(biggest draw will be here, but scouts from areas
north may come too)
- Open area free of RFI and power lines to erect
- Trees to hang antennas
- Access to one or more local repeaters
- Ample parking and up close to unload and load
- Does not conflict soccer or baseball games
Thank you all!
