Contest Club Ontario held its annual general meeting and BBQ at the world-class contest station in Grassie, Ontario owned and operated by John, VE3EJ.
Contesters from across the province showed up at this gathering and this year we set a new record with just short of 100 in attendance.
CCO has grown over the years and is now a force to be reckoned with when it comes to club-to-club competition against American clubs and some of the best in the world.
Contesting is more than just a pain in the butt (which it is when you’re doing a 48-hour contest solo) but is a test of station design, contesting strategy and physical endurance.
But even if the contester only gets on and works a few contacts we all have fun and well learn new things about contesting.
Thanks to all the sponsors who provided door prizes and to RadioWorld for the demonstration of the FlexRadio 500 and Yaseu DX 5000.
Thanks to John, EJ, for the use of this place and thanks again to the CCO executive who help make this one of the great contesting clubs in the world.
