August 2, 2014 was another great day for our annual Metro picnic at the home of N9LAH in Chebanse. Phil and Cindy did a great job in welcoming the happy and hungry club members and guests. There were 27 attendees who enjoyed the appetizers, burgers, brats, fried chicken, salads, fruit plates and many desserts. What a feast! Later in the day Mike, K9AJ, hosted the “CW Pileup” competition. Six club members attempted to decipher the calls and the winner with the most correct was Jim, N9TK, followed by Carl K9CS and Bob K9CJ. Prizes were awarded to these top finishers. Later, Bob, K9MDO was surprised with a plaque acknowledging his years of service for our club. Bob was really surprised and quite speechless…quite a rarity for Bob!
Here’s a listing of those who enjoyed the festivities: Jim N9TK and Laura, Bob K9MDO and Karen WB9YBL, Don K9NR and Billie K9QT, Mark K9TP and Roxana, Bob K9CJ, John W9ILY, Bob N9ORD and Trudie, John K9DRS and Joan, Jan WG9V and Sue KC9RWX, Jerry WB9Z and Val NV9L, Mike K9AJ and Sue K9XYL, Carl K9CS and Chris W9LIZ, Joe KA9IIE, Mike K9LSH and Velda, and our gracious host Phil N9LAH and hostess Cindy.
