Subject: [4sqrp] No Ozarkcon for me...



Well, we were headed out from Decatur, IL this morning at about 9:30 AM
- excited to get out of town and looking forward to a little R&R: my
wife at Branson and me of course at Ozarkcon. We were second in line to
cross an intersection and a car blew through the red light and T-boned
us at about 50 MPH.

We were spun around 1-1/4 times and they had to cut me out of the car.
Fortunately neither my wife nor I were seriously hurt but we are very
very very sore - scrapes, bruises, etc. Mostly seat belt bites. I have
a knot on my shoulder that looks like I'm growing a second head! The
kits and stuff I was going to sell in the trunk (I kit the O'Patrol and
Designer Dream Boards) did not fair so well. The pine boards in the
Ozark Patrol some - were split in half. I was bringing a Drake 2A to
sell and it's wadded up like a potato chip.

But we live to fight another day. Thank God for His care. Pretty
amazing day - and no, not April fools joke.

QSL CARDS & UN-BUILT KITS

Kent Trimble, K9ZTV
 

Guys and Gals . . .

Be sure to bring a stack of your own QSL cards, especially if you're participating in the DUMMY LOAD QSO PARTY (floor to floor, room to room).

For me this year, it's a KX1 and a mag-loop.

I'm also bringing several UN-BUILT, NEVER-OPENED Four-State kits I've won or bought over the last several years, some of which are now out-of-stock or retired.  I'm offering them FREE to whomever wants them . . . with one catch.  See me for the "catch."

Sadly, it's a BEAUTIFUL day in the hills of the Ozarks.  Wx forecast is for more of the same for the weekend, with maybe a little spring chill at times.

Hey Dale
We had some pretty strong BOOMERS early after noon, but hopefully the last snow was Easter Sunday here in the Midwest!
No twisters though, that's a good thing!
Sorry you guys are snowbound!
Have a listen Friday and Saturday for K0N at OZARKCON, you might catch up with the station Master, Bart W0iit!!
He will write you up a QSL card!!
72, stay Warm 
We're all headed to Branson to play radio for a weekend!!
