Brrrrr... The weather was cold, the people were warm!

That title really sums up this years event. Out of all the days this summer, RASC had picked this chilly one. The marine layer hung in late, the wind was brisk and the sharpness off the water had laid out the setting of an early spring day..... At the end of July!

Don't let that fool you. It was the warmth of the club members that really unfolded into a nice event. There was Hamburgers and Hot dogs on the grill and the trimmings to match. The pot-luck approach allowed for the a diverse menu selection.

We were lucky to have some "Ole Timers" in presence. Ed (W7JGM), Greg W4TER formally N7HOC) and Rich (N7FDM) to name a few. Needless to say, this allowed for a wide range of rag chew topics!

I took some pictures and placed them in a site album at http://www.kg7hq.wetnet.net/node/266 .

I like to take a moment to mention that it is events like this in which we capture the spirit of Amateur Radio. If your local club or organization doesn't do things like this, they are missing something special.
