Chapter 36 - Northwest Indiana

~ Creaky Knees and Rusty Keys ~

Keep those recommendations coming! The Dynasty Buffet in Valpo (Chinese) was suggested for our October meeting, and I think it is a keeper too! The food was very good and moderately priced. Service was also very attentive and we had adequate space reserved for us to all sit together. Some of our group are regulars there, and for others it was their first time... but all of the comments I heard were very positive. We had a very good crowd of 32 people, and welcomed Valpo Tech graduate, Lowell Katz (from Ohio) who came in to visit his former professor, Gene W9CWG.

As I feared, it was not a good place for a show-and-tell, but I did get a corner spot for our banner. I don't think anyone brought anything anyway, but we also did not have much in the way of a meeting either, concentrating on food and fellowship instead. Danny, W9DWS, did loan me over three dozen old QSL cards to scan and add to our website. These cards are all to Steve Gormley, WN9/WA9EZJ, and include a 1968 card from W1AW, and a 1963 card from Herb Brier, W9EGQ. Thanks Danny! Click here to see this set of cards.
