2 metre Fox Hunt part 3. Further details via club reflector. NOTE: LPH CLOSED.


Hi everyone

Here are the details for this Wednesday’s fox hunt. Please note that Lancing Parish Hall will be closed. Details below.

I will be acting as the hidden station call sign G3WOR/P and intend to be on 145.525 (S21 / V42), in the event of that frequency being in use I will identify a free channel and advise on 145.500 and GB3WO.

Please note that the Parish Hall will be closed so we are meeting in the bar at the Lancing Harvester, Grinstead Lane afterwards.  For those not taking part (I hope you all are J) people will be meeting there from 2000 onwards.

This hunt is the third of three of a championship for the G8FMJ Fox Hunt cup. The winning individual(s) will receive 2 points, if the fox is not found before 21:30 the fox(es) receive 1 point. At the end of the year the most points wins with the fastest time being taken into account in the event of tie.

If you haven’t taken part in a fox hunt before and would like to, please post on the discussion list as there are most likely seats available in other vehicles. You may want to find or print a map to draw bearings on.
