The foxhunt at Blount Cultural Park was a great success. The winner was 10-year-old Hayden Kelley, the son of a friend who was brought to the event by Steven Bragg, KA9MVA. Steven and Hayden used only a handheld radio and a rubber duckie to win the event.

Lance Kelley, Hayden's father, took second place. It was outstanding to see new and aspiring hams who are not yet licensed and not yet club members, do so well in this hunt!

Third place went to Steven Bragg KA9MVA. He had led his team to a nearby tree within 50 feet of the fox when Hayden, with his eagle eyes, spotted the fox and won the competition.

Marissa Robledo W4AQT was on a team with Jeff Johns WE4B. She won Best Under 16 Hunter and Best New Ham. She also showed off her satellite antenna.

Jeff Rogers W4JFF and Ryan Fontaine KN4LGO worked hard and were successful in finding the fox. Dave Toellner KK4GNG and Ken Brittin AK4KN, as well as Jere Whitehouse W4CRS lent their support and hunted eagerly.

John, KJ6MTJ, watched over the weather and was ready to alert all to any possible lightning danger. Joe, W4JTB, came by to offer moral support and encourage the participants, and Fred, N3AZ, assisted the fox and the overall organization of the event.

When it was time to deploy the fox around 7:30 AM, there were patches of rain lining up to ruin the festivities. But then, as 9:00 AM approached the skies cleared and the weather could not have been nicer!
