Last Minute Info: Saturday's FoxHunt at the IRA Hudsonville Swap
- Be sure to stay around after the IRA Hamfest in Hudsonville Saturday
for the "My Money's All Gone" Foxhunt put on by the Grand Rapids
Amateur Radio Assoc.
Meet the "Official Starter" Jim Leys, KD8CAN, in the Park Avenue
Parking lot by the IRA ticket booth by 12:45 PM to record your
odometer reading and to get the latest instructions. The Fox (the
team of Tom and Sheila Bosscher K8TB/K8AJ) will begin transmitting
their taunts exactly at 1:00 PM.
See the GRARA website http://www.w8dc.org/FoxHuntMain.htm for rules
and all kinds of useful links to foxhunting info.
In the words of Jack Kunnen, GRARA President.... "The hunt should be
a good one, even if you don't have fancy equipment come on out we can
match up and car pool as needed. Fox hunts are a good time, putting
some of our Ham skills to a test. Everyone is welcome."
What do you win, you ask? Just the unending respect of your peers
and the first option to be the fox at the next GRARA fox hunt.
In addition, you will have the extreme pride in knowing that you
brought the current championship back to your Grand Rapids Club. The
current reigning champions are Tom and Sheila Bosscher from the
Holland Amateur Radio Club. (The HARC couldn't win twice in a
row..... could they?)
If you get a chance, sign-up on the W8DC website so we know to expect
you. This is a beginner level fox hunt. No computer aided or
doppler tracking systems are allowed.
Come on out and enjoy ham radio! Saturday at 12:45 at the IRA
