UPCOMING LOCAL EVENTS
We will be hosting our first fox hunt of the year on March 14, 2020. We will meet at the Veterans Memorial Building, 22 W. Broadway, Meridian at 0900. We will have coffee, donuts, and social time while the fox goes out and hides. The winning team will receive the world famous and highly coveted Fox Trophy. Entry fee is $5.00 per two-man team. Entry fee will go towards a 50/50 raffle. 50% goes to the raffle winner, 50% goes to help defray the cost of the donuts and support the club. You do not need to have an FCC license to participate. If you would like to come and see what ham is all about and to meet some really neat, fun folks, you are more than welcome to attend. We’ll hook you up with a licensed operator. Hope to see you there.

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.
