CQ Worldwide Foxhunting Weekend Results
May 14th, 2013 by WA4IDI
Reports of activity in the 16th annual CQ Worldwide Foxhunting
Weekend are starting to come in. Thanks to the Ski Country
ARC of Glenwood Springs, CO and the West Texas Repeater
Association for being the first to submit reports.
The official Worldwide Foxhunting Weekend was May 11-12 this
year, but as you know, we're not picky about the actual date. If
your club hasn't had its spring foxhunt, now is the time to plan it.
The annual announcement is in the April issue of CQ Magazine
and on my Web site: www.homingin.com
The wrap-up article for last year's FW was delayed, but it's in
the June 2013 issue of CQ which is now headed for subscriber
mailboxes. The turnaround time will be shorter this year.
I look forward to receiving your Foxhunting Weekend reports
