Foxoring results were strung up at the equipment shed.
Almost 30 participants were on hand Friday morning for the sprint competition. There were ten fox transmitters in the field, transmitting for 12 seconds each in cycle. Because this was bow-and-arrow hunting seasion, everyone was asked to wear some orange for safety. The organizers provided orange headcovers for everyone, but some had not donned them when this picture was taken before the start.
Joseph Huberman K5JGH explained the rules and procedures for the sprint. To his left was Marvin Johnston KE6HTS, who coordinated the finish and to his right was Ian Schields, who coordinated the start.
