The 1st Night Fox Hunt.
By Kevin, N9REG

This is N9REG  reporting for the winning team of
N9REG AND N9QXZ.   No that is not a misprint
N9IO did not win this one.   We got a big jump on
the group but then got stopped behind someone
who did not know how to turn right on red.
There was a sign that said no turn on red but
who reads now a days?

From that stop sign we could see all of the other
hunters turning out of the parking not more than
a block away getting the jump on us.   In fact we
sat there so long we saw K9NR go north and
then south.   When we finally got the green we
went like the wind until one of Bradley's finest
spotted us with my yagi hanging out as I was
making a left turn in a right turn lane.
He was nice and let us go.

At this point we had made our wide turn and were
heading west on 102.   We had made it about 1/2
way to the State Park when N9QXZ asked me to
pull over and take a reading sitting still.
So I turned off on a side road and waited.
The fox came to life and we got our reading,
he was west so I started to turn the van around
and backed right into a ditch.

As we felt the tail end sinking fast I floored it and
started to smoke the tires.   We were still slipping
backwards and I knew we were done for,
another hunt that N9IO would surely win.
But as our tail lights were sinking and our head
lights were pointing towards the stars some
rubber started to grab and we slowly inched
out of that grand canon of a ditch.

Boy O' Boy that was a close one!

As we flew past the State Park we could see N9IO
taking the scenic route though the park and we
knew we were still in it.   We turned south on
Warner Bridge Road and stopped at 113.

We then got a reading heading west and were off
again, but not for long. We saw a small Rd and
turned in to get a good reading and there he was,
THE FOX!   By the time we parked and said hi to
Mr. FOX N9IO was pulling in.

I then turned and went to greet
Clay (N9IO) with a big smile and a loud

                                      NOT TO BE OUT FOXED
