    A good time was had by all.  
   It is so nice to see so many faces to go with the voices you hear on the radio.
    For the third year in a row, Fred Lloyd (AA7BQ), founder and CEO of, has gifted 2 premium one year subscriptions to QRZ.
   You may recall that Fred was here 3 years ago and spoke to a well-attended meeting of PSRG at the Salmon Bay Cafe.
   To this day he still speaks very highly of the PSRG having had a wonderful time here in the Pacific Northwest with PSRG and Field Day.
   Last night winners were....
    Insert drum roll and rotating spotlights roaming on the audience --
            Bruce Sherman – N7EQL
            Steve Lough – N7GWG

    Congrats to both and we certainly do hope they have a great time on!
     Certainly more to come next year!
    I have no pictures but there were many flashes going off in the cafe.
     Perhaps you can snag a couple of jpg’s from some of the attendees and post on the PSRG website.
