Orlando has 49 degrees this morning, 100% chance of rain, a high of 55, and snow in Medder, Ga today.  Weather has been in our favor so far although a little cool.

W4CYJ Mike ran our group’s net this morning.  By 8:05 eastern time, Mike had 40 check-ins.  What a great group we have at Hamcation from RV SVC Net, with over 45 rigs so far.  Will Mike be able to get everyone in before the Bell Ringers take over the frequency at 9:00 (hi hi)?

Potluck at Hamcation 2010

Yesterday we had a wonderful potluck luncheon, saw almost everyone here and shared great food and fellowship.  Great thanks to KD8KOT Gloria for suggesting the potluck and for her delicious dishes she shared.   And thanks to everyone who attended and brought so many different and tasty foods.

A special benefit of having this group is the Net Controls amongst us.  Tab KR4RR ran yesterday’s net for 56 check-ins, and Mike W4CYJ did well today with 52 check-ins.  Don’t know what happened to the other 4, they must have slept in and missed this early net.

We’re looking forward to our annual Skycraft Surplus visit this morning.  We’ll walk around and fill our bags with all the things our xyls wish we weren’t bringing home.  This promises to be a good morning for Skycraft, but they’re going to be pretty crowded with our group descending upon them.  My budget is $10, should be enough to fill at least one bag.
