Another fantastic FD ! WX was nice again, just a 5 minute shower passed through on Sunday. We had a bunch of new operators join us this year, and we easily beat our score from last year, making over 2300 QSOs! The setup went smoothly, we had a radio on the air by 10 AM Saturday. The VHF station made 60+ QSOs on 6 mtrs, and the GOTA station turned in a solid performance with over 100 QSOs.

        We placed 8th overall in the 2A category !
