To all the MAARC members who came out early this morning to help, a big thank you. While the totals are not in yet, we did have 134 paid entrants and the 50/50 gave $192 to the winner and $192 to the club so I think we are on track to have the best flea market yet. Larry will let us know what the final take is on the raffle and canteen and we will post some pictures of the winners of the door prizes and the raffle.
I am glad to report that our own Oscar, VE9OSK won the raffle prize. The prize was a new Yaesu FT-2980 hi output (80 watts) 2 meter transceiver. He told me that at first he said to himself that he just missed the winning number of 273 as his ticket was 271 but then he remembered he had bought 3 for $5 so he had 271, 272 and 273. Congratulations Oscar and enjoy the new radio.
The door prizes were won by Kevin, VE1KEV who decided on the Tri-band hand held radio and VY2REG, Reg who got the dual-band mobile radio. Congratulations to all. - Ross VE9GCS
