John Grace - KD5VSB -
Yes, John had some kind of magnet to the camera lense.

Thanks to Doug Lee - KC5ZQM for the following report:


Overall, the Fair Parade went smooth, despite late-arriving line-up sheets.  We had a few entries show up late, and so we had to put them at the back of the line.  But everyone that showed up got to take part in the parade.

            Thanks to Mark Conklin N7XYO for providing doughnuts, fresh-brewed coffee, and juice so the volunteers would be alert and energized.  Ben Joplin WB5VST once again did a good job of running the net (with help from Jesse).  I think Ben may have a life-time position.

A big THANK YOU goes to everyone who helped.
