Enjoyed the fellowship. I think we will end up with 948 contacts. 500 more bonus points this year than last year. Comm trailer and antenna trailers worked out great. Site visit by Served Agency Official and elected official for 200 bonus points. Alternate power message to SEC and education for the other 300 bonus points. Thanks to Kenneth Teague and CERT members for setting up the climate controlled, 12X16 shelter and for the use of Caldwell County EM generator and light tower. Paul Robinette-KD4OZI, ASEC of the Western Branch ARES/Auxcomm visited us on Saturday morning. Thank you Paul and your wife for taking pictures. We were also visited by N2ZZ-Dr Jim Boehner, the ARRL Roanoke Division Director, and his navigator Charlie-AE4UX. They started in Aiken SC then went to Myrtle Beach with other stops up the coast. They made a Westward turn on I-40, to the Foothills of NC, where the found us! Thanks to all who participated and made this FD another great event.
