Interesting, I always thought that QRP was 5W or less regardless of mode. There is some discussion about this variable on Wikipedia:
I'm not sure about that date offhand but so far looks good. You may want to send a reminder the day before as well.

Good morning, TLARC!
Saturday, April 20 marks the traditional first major QRP field event of the year - QRP To The Field. Rules are available at this link:
This year's theme is "Any Ole Park" and the TLARC Field Nuts plan to activate at Lenoir City Park overlooking the Fort Loudoun Dam. No specific times but I would anticipate the afternoon hours being prime for 40 and 20 meter propagation.
This event partners with Summits On The Air so there should be a number of SOTA activations that day to provide additional contact opportunities. Not sure about low power operating? Come on out and see what can be done with a full QRP gallon - 5 watts CW or 10 watts SSB.
We hope to see you there - it's been a wet spring so let's hope for a nice day on the 20th!
