Last RFTB for 2006
- Well, folks, this is it - the last RFTB for 2006. This is a busy one
too, so I hope and pray that the ionosphere will calm down enough that
we'll actually be able to hear one another!
First, in addition to the normal 1st, 2nd and 3rd place certificates
that will be issued, the winner of the December RFTB will be receiving a
special Holiday Piggie treat courtesy of Jeff K3OQ. Second, after this
RFTB, the "Big Pig of the Sty", "El Numero Uno Hog" will be determined.
This fine porkster will achieve a Certificate of Achievement as well as
a special Piggie memento. Second and third place point accumulators for
the year will receive something special also. And for those of you who
participated in at least 10 RFTBs throughout the year will receive a
"Piggie Attendance Award" So, here and forthwith begins the formal
announcement. Roll the tape!
