 SO HOW DID WE DO ON FIELD DAY?

Maybe not the best in the US/Canada, but the food was great and we sure had fun! We had a total of 499 QSO's for a final score of 2,440 points. During the day we had smoked Boston Butt, ham, roast rump, great hot dog's and hamburgers. It was very HOT during site set up and our tent #1 performed quite well as a day long sauna. While the pool would have been nice, only the ladies and the children had time to get in the pool. With some good publicity, we had 21 visitors at our site.
