Once again this year, LCRC's 2012 Field

(VA3PGW) and his charming wife Marg, in Gorman City Park
immediately adjacent to their spacious home in Oil City,
We ran two stations
in the 2A Category (emergency power) using the Club's call
sign (VE3SAR), plus a "free" satellite, VHF/UHF
and "Get On The Air' (GOTA) stations. As in previous years, our operation in
the contest was for "fun" and not necessarily
for "points" although a log of contacts was kept for eventual submittal.
members and their families enjoyed a Saturday evening supper
and Sunday morning breakfast "on the house" thanks
to the work of our resident "culinary
VE3CFK and his able staff, including Vera (his XYL) and Kate,
Once again, our sincere thanks to Gary
and Marg for offering us their gracious hospitality and
especially to Don Farrar, VA3ZV, and Bill Bush (VE3BXI) for serving as
co-coordinators for our Field Day event this year.
Needless to say, because of the good work
of all of these fine folks...and a whole lot more who
joined us to operate or simply to help out...a fun time was had by all.
