CQC's 2000 Picnic Meeting was held at Daniels Park, southwest of Denver. Conditions were HOT and a great time was had by all. Highlights were--
The third annual Run for the Trees-- which NOBODY WON! Three stations on 15/20/40M for 45 minutes without a QSO. It wasn't entirely unexpected due to massive geomagnetic storms, but still disappointing. Last year we had a balloon antenna, this year a kite. And Prez Dick, ABØCD skirted a DQ for attaching his antenna to the dumpster. The rules prohibit attachment to any "permanent structure" and using loopholes is fine!
We had to share the site with a wedding-- 130 guests and
wedding party in the hot sun about 50 yards away from the pavillion.
None of us caught the bouquet, but a couple guys were heard speculating
on the use of the flowered arch as an antenna.
It may take awhile for the thumbnail images to load...
please be patient!
