Chapter 36 - Northwest Indiana

~ Creaky Knees and Rusty Keys ~


Here are some pictures from our June 4th meeting at the Z Grill Restaurant in Crown Point. Thanks to George K9WWT for arranging this meeting... it was excellent! The SMALL Contest was declared a tie between the tiny Morse keyer paddles by Bill N9CEG and the beautiful workmanship on the 160m mobile rig by Chuck K9GSV. Some of the other entries were a small straight key by Troy KC9E, a homebrew Fox Hunting device (attenuator and more) by George K9WWT, and a 10-minute ID timer by Stan W4SV. Thanks to all for bringing them in!

The Gang included 10 members and 9 guests (listed below)... many attending tonight for the first time. I think that everyone had a very nice evening and enjoyed seeing people that had not been seen, in some cases, for many years. Everyone had very nice comments about our new banner too.
