Remarks

Robin made it a simple hunt with plenty of lighting and parking; we even provided golf clubs for the first team in but it might have been a little cool outside to play. We setup the 13 element beam right next to the parking lot so it would be easy to find once you got there and the second transmitter was a simple Altoid box stuck by a magnet on the dumpster about 100 yards away. So hunters got fooled and went the wrong way at the start but knowing how this hider has done this before they turn back West and got to the hiding spot quickly but didn't avoid the graveyard, at least no one got out of their vehicle and did any sniffing in the graveyard. Everyone got there fast except one team who forgot to pick up their meds, so they had to split. Joe stayed warm because his windows go up now after many of hours figuring out the wiring schematic and repairing the problem in his hunt vehicle. We have some video on the Go-Pro that was taken in the dark with some overhead lighting so it will be available soon. We all got to El Patio mexican restaurant except for the (in-n-out boys) for some great chow and libations especially the Chile Rellano I heard was outstanding. Thanks for coming, ZM
