Chapter 36 - Northwest Indiana

~ Creaky Knees and Rusty Keys ~

Yet again we had a terrific turnout for our October 22nd meeting, with another new attendance record of 35 members and guests (includes two youngsters). I had high expectations that Kelsey's Steakhouse would be a good choice... but unfortunately they only gave us one waitress, and though she worked hard to serve us, she needed more help. So I apologize for this one, and I hope that we don't run into too many problems like this as we go along.

It was a pleasure to present Jim Harney KF9EX with his QCWA 50th Anniversary Award! Jim is a great asset to our chapter and has provided us with many photos, QSL's, and other material that are shared on the website. See his collection here.

The Open Photo Contest had some outstanding entries, but I goofed again and should have put a limit on how many. There were so many good photos (submitted by many of our large crowd) that there wasn't a clear winner. I will try to make this a lesson learned and be more focused on future contests. Thanks to all of you for sharing your pictures with us!
