There were three days of great presentations, demonstrations and wonderful Ham Radio conversations.
|One of many Technical Conversations|
The main events were on Saturday and Sunday, but many of the die-hard's were on site Thursday through Monday. I think the sign-in-sheet only listed about 60 attendees, but I think there were more.

The long distant traveler was John - N0AR and his family from Minnesota.
Jeff and I were up early on Saturday to set out the Fox for the Fox Hunt (see below).

Saturday Morning was started with Curt - WR5J cooking a wonderful breakfast (with a little help from John's Boys). I remembered Curt's breakfast from last year, so I made sure I was up on time.

A Fox Hunting with one Radio is like Canoeing.
After the Fox Hunt, Jeff - K07M, gave a presentation on the Propeller Microprocessor showing its architecture and how it could be used in Amateur Radio - the Fox Hunt was a good example.
