Bumblebees: the initial roster
|By Russ Carpenter, AA7QU
The ARS Sojourner
|In the April issue of The ARS Sojourner we accounced the 2001 Flight of the Bumblebees, to be held on July 29 (which is our standard date, the last Sunday of July). The roster now includes 62 stalwart operators who will give their all to the cause of beedom.
As always, we held a drawing for the first 25 persons to sign up. We are pleased to announce that Bees number 5 (N6MM) and 18 (AC5K) were the winners. Congratulations to Harvey and Wes! Each will receive a year's subscription to Backpacker Magazine.
ARS is on the hunt for a few good bees. If you would like to participate in this wonderfully rewarding event, email me at email@example.com.
And here is the initial roster of 2001 Bumblebees.
