September fox hides in urban lair

foxhunt cartoonSeptember’s foxhunt occurred on Sunday 10 September, again with a reduced number of hunters in the game because that Sunday was also the date of the Findlay Hamfest. So the hunters that participated consisted of the team of Linda and Steve Nardin, K9’s LAN and SAN and their grandson Alex, the team of Charles Ward, KC9MUT, Fred Gengnagle, KC9EZP and Phil Hooper, AB9IZ, and individual hunter Clarke Derbyshire, KG9FM.

Serving as the fox was Don Glick, K9LI, who situated himself in Reservoir Park (now known as Ivan Lebamoff Park) on the corner of Creighton Ave. and South Clinton St., a few blocks south of Parkview Field. Don used a 5 watt hand held to taunt the hunters who were initially situated at Cobin Memorial Field. He emplaced the microfox within a metal birdhouse on the grounds of Reservoir Park and both he and it squawked on the usual foxhunt frequency of 146.430 MHz.
