August 11 our Annual Picnic!
A great day for a picnic a Henes Park in Menominee! About 30 Hams, spouses, and others came out for our summer event enjoying burgers, brats, and hot dogs along with a wide variety of potluck!
With Jim (k8ir) at the grill, and Char Conover organizing the potluck, a mountain of delicious food was served! Ham of the year awards for last year and this year, Gayle w9gcg and Steve k9stt respectively. And what can be more fun than a Fox Hunt? AJ - kb7kz was the finder of the fox!
AJ also provided awards for the 13 colonies special event station for those who participated, including himself, kd8fue and myself (k9stt)!
Lots of goodies were won at the silent auction, and a nice variety too - not all ham related! 
All in all it was a great day at the park, giving us all something to look forward to next year!

August 8 Fox Hunt
Several of us participated in the Fox Hunt this month thanks to Eric (KG9GH) organization for our 'meetingless' Thursday fox hunt! WN6KHG, KD9MXH and K9STT each participated, with Tim, WN6KHG finding the fox - thereby earning the privilege of hiding it again at our picnic this weekend!
