Why would you think that? For longer than I have been a ham, Field Day has been the fourth full weekend in June. Usually there are only four full weekends in June, so the fourth is also the last, but every so often the stars and calendars align, and there are five. And when that happens, there are folks who don't bother to read the rules, and are caught short. The next time it happens will be 2024. Just watch..... ---- One of the classic elements of Field Day is "folks who don't read/understand the current rules". Many, many times I've had to tell folks "that's not what the rules actually say" - to the point that I'd bring a copy of the rules along to prove it. And it's not the newcomers who gave me a hard time about it - it's the "oldtimers", who often hadn't read the rules in 10 or 20 years and ASSUMED there were no changes. All part of the game.
