Thanks to everyone who came out and made this year's Field Day a
success! I want to especially mention Mike, N6MRS, as well as the
entire Holzer family who put in who knows how many hours setting up
antennas and then operating - and then cleaning up afterwards on
Sunday! Leon's generators also saved us after our primary generator
developed an issue halfway through Saturday.

Kevin N4KWR and Patrick did a great job with the food, and thanks to
Bill Johnson for organizing everything on site and heading up the
cleanup efforts on Sunday.

Rich, N4ESS and Bill Busbin again provided their tower trailers, which
is no small undertaking to get to the site and then set up/tear down
so thanks for that - as well as Rich bringing his station and
operating the entire event, after spending Friday evening and Saturday
setting up everything. I'm glad we had lots of coffee available...

Last but not least, Fred Delaney and Bob Doherty for heading up both
the technical and the organizational side of things, with Fred
prepping all our wire antennas and storing/hauling all that gear out
to the site, setting up, tearing down...lots of work, but with a good
amount of people to help this year I think it went really well!

We will be holding our celebratory dinner at the north 98 Golden
Corral in Lakeland, starting at 6pm this Monday, July 2. Hope to see
you there! For more info and directions, visit
