KK9H Winner of the 2019 Fox Hunt


Annual Fox Hunt

For our July Meeting we will be at:

The Glen in Glenview

Tuesday July 9th 2019

We had a great group of hunters armed with various tools and antennas. In the end, Don Whiteman prevailed over the pack as the Fox was hidden right behind us, in the parking garage. Everyone ran off for the fields to the east and Don walked west to get his first bearing. The tricky part was determining whether to go below deck or on top. He went up with his team mates, Mark Klocksin and Matt Teichert and found the Fox buried in the back seat of a Jeep. Thanks to Ben Orr and family for hiding the Fox. Rob Orr, came in 2nd; Marty Boroff, 3rd; Warren Pugh 4th! It was a great night for the Hunt.
