It’s time to start a Marshall County Fox Hunt!!!
This hunt will be educational for those who are interested in learning how to fox hunt.
Come out if you want to learn, but don’t have equipment or if you are a seasoned fox hunt veteran.
Greg is going to suggest that our next tech day be a fox hunt antenna build.
Hope you can join us. It’s a lot of fun and great learning event.
Don’t want to drive. Hitch a ride with one of the teams!
Sunday, August 13. Transmitter will be turned on at 1pm. Show up a little early for some training and to get your equipment prepared.
Foker Park (Pond Park), Argos, IN 46501, On Kenilworth Rd. At the Railroad tracks.
Radio Transmitter Hunt (Fox Hunt)
1). The transmitter will be turned on at 1pm.
2). The transmitter will be within 5 air miles of the starting location. (This is a driving hunt, reset your vehicle’s tripmeter before leaving the park)
3). You will have 2 hours to find the fox.
4). The team that finds the fox within the two hours and has the least amount of mileage on their tripmeter will be declared the winner.
5). At the conclusion of the hunt we will meet at the Argos McDonalds to talk about what everyone learned and to enjoy whatever food or ice cream you might want to purchase.
If the weather is bad, we will postpone the hunt. I will post the cancellation on our Facebook page and make an announcement on the K9ZLQ Club Repeater 146.670. I will make every effort to make that announcement at Noon the day of.
Looking forward to seeing you at the park August 13th.
