After setting all of the transmitters, Bob Cooley KF6VSE waited for finishers to arrive and to download their e-sticks. (KH)

Some competitors make few very marks on their maps but others, like Patrick Sears AK4JE, are very methodical.  Here is his map after the two-meter competition. (PS)

After finishing, competitors compared their course routes, as Jerry Boyd WB8WFK and Ruth Bromer WB4QZG are doing here. (KH)

The traditional awards banquet took place Saturday evening in the event hotel.  Banquet Coordinator Tom Gaccione WB2LRH was happy with the taco bar from Golden Rotisserie, a local restaurant. (PS)

Young James Harker celebrated his seventh birthday at the banquet with his parents Jen W5JEN and Ken WM5R. (PS)

Everybody had a chance to enjoy James' birthday cake. (TG)
