— June 15, 2019 Fox Hunt hosted by N7LN was once again a success and fun for all.
Hunters were from Lt-Rt, Thom WA7JUL, Steve, W7BJX, Matt (Fox) W7LGN, Rich (Fox) W7BOI, Mike W7RWJ, and Steve W7OSG. First place was won by the team of Steve and Mike. In a tight race (not really) Thom and Mike came in second. Matt and Rich did an outstanding job of being the fox. They had us all on the run.
— On April 20, 2019 N7LGN hosted its first fox hunt of the season. Four two-man teams participated. Thom WA7JUL hosted, along with Bill N7OCV and Mike WB7RWS playing fox. The group met at the Veterans Memorial Building in Meridian for doughnuts and coffee before the hunt, and pizza afterward. It was unanimous that all had a good time and it was lots of fun. Bill N7OCV did a great job of hiding and used just about every trick in the book to fool the hunters. The winners of the Fox Trophy were the team of Steve N7BJX and Mike W7OSG. Second was the team of Rich W7BOI and Matt W7LGN, Third was Eric N1SRC and his co-pilot Bill. Fourth was Joel N0DNE and Judy NC0DNE.
