Thanks for the GREAT picnic!

We could not have asked for a nicer day for our annual ARES picnic at KDØCNC’s place today.  Sunny skies, cool temperatures and great company!  It was good flying weather for the RC gliders, too.

The food was plentiful and tasty, and I ate more than my share!  Almost everyone ended up with some kind of giveaway, and the two rigs were raffled off to well-deserving new hams.

Rick KDØCNC and Sally KDØCND deserve lots of thanks for all the work they did to make the picnic a success.  Thanks also to the following contributors:

Newman’s Country Mart
Orschelin Farm and Home
Lucas Oil Speedway
Cable Xperts
MFJ Enterprises
Associated Radio
Wade’s Plumbing
Comet Antennas
and everyone who showed up and had a great time!

The food, fun and fellowship are always a blast. It’s a great chance to meet the people we hear on the radio.

Rick has promised great weather, as usual. He will be grilling burgers and hotdogs. Bring a side dish or salad if you can.  A chair would be a good idea, too.
