Mary and I got there at 7:30 and Tom was already there, unloading the chairs, canopy and generator. Charly arrived on scheule and Bill Preen also showed up. Bill, Charly and Tom all did a great job of talking to visitors to our booth and we had 9 people sign our log sheet indicating that they were intersted in becoming hams.
Tom invited several Boy Scouts to the booth and they got an opportunity to talk on the 2 meter radio.
We saw some familar faces visit the booth, Dan Beffa, Joe Kelman, and both Randy's. Jon and Pasty came by near the end of the day and helped tear down and pack up. We also had some on-air visitors, with James and John checking in.
I think the day went well and I am looking forward to doing it again next year.
Okay, the day we have been waiting for all year is almost here
As you know, we have been putting in a lot of hours at the farm and now have a world class ham shack with a 115' 10 meter vertical, a OCF dipole hung 50' up, a 10 meter yagi on the ground and ready to put up and a variety of other antennas. We will be putting them to use starting at 7:00 pm Dec 13th going thru 6:59 pm on Sunday in the ARRL ten meter contest.
In conjuction with the 10 meter contest we are holding our annual SARC Christmas Party on December 14th starting at 3 pm. We have purchased a 54 pound pig and Dan Beffa has volunteered to smoke it. We need a ten dollar donation from everyone attending.
If you have never been to the farm before and need directions, follow this link.
