2013 Flagpole Comp wrap up!

What a great weekend!

As the dust settled and the flags were packed away for next years activities I collected the logs, photos and evidence for review at a casual club meeting. Firstly I have to say for our first comp things went really well, we had contacts from across the land in conditions that were difficult to say the least.

By popular vote points for flags, setup and effort were awarded and the I am happy to announce that the winner is …… Geoff VK2MIA with 152 points.



Not only did Geoff have a flag pole station, he also had a pirate hat, pirate dreadlocks, a sea location, made SSTV contacts and emailed through photos that he had a random by passer take. If that wasn’t enough he also had to deal with someone telling him he couldn’t do “what ever it was he was doing”…

Special mention goes to VK3BQ for his awesome efforts in getting the word out in VK3 about our comp and his great sstv images. VK3YE and VK3BQ for the YouTube video and everyone else who participated in this fun event.
