      There's no internet at the TIROS building, where the party was to have been held originally.
      Wifi coverage around the hotel is limited at best.
      I think the access point is actually at the cottage.

      So thanks to everyone who was able to make it to the party
      and contribute to it's success.
      I think we all had an excellent time -- some more than others.

      As cold as it was on Saturday, I preferred that to the deluge we had on Sunday,
      especially when I was trying to load my car and got soaked.
      Normally, that wouldn't have been a problem if I'd have driven straight home.
      But I decided to stay at InfoAge for a few more hours.
      The payoff: being able to use the ham radio to talk to my friend at the South Pole.
      Thrilled to log this rare DX contact, I drove home with a big grin on my face.
      Now imagine if that was your very first contact as a new ham. (Congratulations Steve!)

      When's the spring party? I'm already looking forward to it.
