SOTA VHF Fun Day 2010
It’s fair to say that anyone who took part in this years NP Fun Day (2009) enjoyed it. I returned home with 9 activator and 52 chaser points. A superb effort for those involved, you know who you are and I thank you again. In my opinion there is something about being on a hilltop in freezing temperatures playing radio that appeals to me. Others may agree, some will say that I’m insane.
The 2009 NP Fun Day was organised by quite a few people even though I was given most of the credit. For some time after the event I was thanked by quite a few people and not once did I try and claim all the credit. I always explained that it was a fantastic effort by many.
So,with all the disagreements involving SOTA over the last few months I would like to put forward my idea of a VHF Fun Day 2010 for Sunday 3rd January at 13:00. I am aware that some people travelled considerable distances last time so this time rather than a NP Fun Day how about a SOTA VHF Fun Day? That way people can activate their local/favourite summit and save time as well as money.
The 2009 event idea was attempted to be hijacked so before anyone thinks of stealing the thunder this is again the idea of Chris 2E0FSR. Hopefully this will bring some much needed fun back to SOTA and perhaps re-ignite the fire in some activators stomachs.
Although it is against my religion I have put my choice of NP-017 Fountains Fell on the SOTA alerts page. Anyone interested I suggest you do the same. For those who can’t access the alerts feel free to ask and I will do it for you.
So how about we all start batting for the same side for a change? Maybe too much water has gone under the bridge and this thing won’t happen but hey, WX permitting I’m going out there regardless of support for this event or not.
