"2016 ON FOOT T-HUNT SUMMARY: The fifth annual San Diego T-hunt Group's On Foot T-Hunt was held at Lake Murray on May 21st. 2016 and in conjunction with the 2016 World Wide Foxhunting Weekend and brought out a total of 46 people, 36 ""Hams"" & 11 other folks related somehow to participants in the event. This was quite a jump from our normal 20 or 30 that we have had in the past! Joe N6SZO & Joe KE6PHB were on site about 7:15 AM to start unloading supplies for the BBQ and other equipment. Tony WA6ZMZ arrived about 7:45 to provide security for everything while The ""Joe's"" put out the 5 hidden ""T"" that had been programmed to start at 10:00 AM sharp. Thanks to Tony WA6ZMZ for his presence and assistance or we would have not been able to stake out a nice picnic table under a gazebo close to the tot-lot in the park. It turned out that during the day there would be at least 300 people or more occupying areas of the park close to where were set up. I actually missed two phone calls due to the noise of all the kids screaming & yelling on both sides of us. As usual we had advertised that we would have ""Limited"" equipment to loan out and that went really fast as we had 10 -12 people that had never attempted ADRF before. We tried to pair up people and get them on the right track. Our Practice T on 144.100 was on all day and many people located that with assistance. But, explaining the techniques while looking for the practice T resulted in some discrepancies in our paperwork as we were not at the starting table all the time and able to smoothly transition everyone out on the course. So this summary has been pieced together and somewhat simplified, we hope we have not omitted anyone in the process.
