Woody K3YV at Fort Indiantowwn Gap, PA

Can you find K3YV Woody, in the picture above? For the past four days, Rooster Woody has been teaching a class of 15 students for the Air Force, at Ft. Indiantown Gap. Our hobby now has 2 new Generals and 13 new Technicians. Hopefully, there's a future Rooster or two in the group. Way to go Woody!!!

Nice crowd again in EPA. If this continues they soon may have the place filled. Good showing in WPA too. Almost seems like they have a little competition going on. We'll let you decide, if they are lolly gagging or just having a good time? In the east they have been meeting at Brother Paul's Restaurant in Eagleville, in the central area they meet at Hoss's Family Steak & Seafood in State College, and in the west at the Iron Bridge Inn, south of Mercer, PA. We highly recommend that if you plan to attend, you should check in to the net to confirm the date, time, and location, or in case of inclement weather.

By now I guess you've noticed the site has pretty much been brought up to date. My apologies for the site falling behind, and in the same token I would not wish what I was/am dealing with on anyone. I am currently working on a crawler to display the rest of the pictures I received from the picnic. This same script is working on another website I host, so at this point it's still a mystery and subject to change at any moment. In the meantime I set up this link to give access to the same directory / folder the pictures and files are stored in. This includes the zip file and it's contents. As things change I'll update this post.

Quite the turnout on the first, however on the eighth we think these guy headed directly to their own watering hole. We'll let you decide, if they are lolly gagging or just having a good time?
