ST. PAUL RADIO CLUB ANNUAL AUCTION
About 60 hopeful buyers, sellers and spectators
braved the weather and road construction for
our second auction at Our Lady of Guadalupe.
A good time was had by all, helped by the
coffee and homemade goodies.
A special thanks goes to Mary Hunt
whose generous donation of numerous items
from the estate of John Hunt Jr. (KG0JD)
raised $181 for donation to the ARRL
Spectrum Defense Fund!
Net proceeds were over $400.00, so we’ll
be making asubstantial donation to the ARRL
Spectrum Defense Fund.
A big thanks to our volunteers:
Dallas (NØLKD), George (KØGCP) and
Allan (WØNLY) shared the thankless job of handling
the paper and computer work. Dale (NØPEY),
Ralph (NØAWN), Jay (KØQB) and Don (WA6ZMT)
shared the live auction responsibilities. Deb and Jean
sold the great treats and several others helped with
setup and cleanup.
A General class will be held for
eight Thursday nights beginning
on February 13 at Highland Park
Jr. High School.
