When I arrived at Haynes Park about 10:30, set-up was well underway. I looked around the site and started shooting photos for documentation purposes. Our classification was A2NM One transmitter was powered by batteries and solar arrays. The other transmitter was powered my a portable generator.
The CW operator was on 20 Meters and seemed to make a constant stream of contacts. The operators on 40 Meters and other bands did not make as many contacts.
About 2 PM, my brain had had enough. The temperature was climbing, too. I packed it up and was home about 2:30. Relaxed, re-hydrated, and took a nap. Had dinner with my cousin at Billy's Long Bar. On the drive from the house to the bar, the thermometer in my car peaked at 104 degrees.
Sunday, I processed my photos and e-mails them to our Field Day Chairman, Webmaster, and President (Newsletter Editor).

While it was my first time attending this luncheon, I think they get much larger attendance than we did in Omaha. Today's lunch was a special lunch tribute to the classes of the 60s and 70s.

I am happy to say they have been gotten their stuff together...I had their Southern BBQ Burger. Burger with an onion ring, cheese, and bacon. As a side, I had creamy cole slaw. Beverage was 2 pints of The Local Brewhouse Amber Ale.
It was a pleasent lunch with just Bill, Larry, and I, though I was hoping a larger attendance. The group desided we would come back again.
