Excerpt from the November 2016 Newsletter:

I would like to congratulate last month's winners.  There were three door prizes.  The first was an LED Driver Kit won by Pete Wright KB5PWD.  The second was a Baofeng dual-band HT won by new ham and new club member Dan Bradshaw KG5PNN.  The big prize was the Yaesu FTM-3100R,

and the winner was... NOT KYLE WAYNE GOODSON N5KWG!  

If you missed the meeting last month, you missed a good laugh!  Mr. Carroll KB5TCH drew the tickets, and when he called the numbers, Kyle Wayne read his ticket wrong.  He thought he won that radio!  He jumped up and ran and took it from Jim.  He got back to his seat with his loot when the real winner, Floyd McCall KD5NRI, piped up that he had the winning ticket.  The humor in this "easy come, easy go" situation definitely overshadowed his disappointment.  At the tender young age of 9, I asked Kyle Wayne how he felt about it, and he just shrugged and said, "Maybe I'll win it next month."  Win or lose, the door prize drawings are fun.

November 2016 Drawing:

Mr. Carroll drew the winning ticket again this month.

and the winner was... KYLE WAYNE GOODSON N5KWG!  

We couldn't believe it!  Of course, everybody hopes they win, but since they didn't, they were sure glad it was Kyle Wayne after what happened last month.  This time, his ticket was verified.  Kyle Wayne was, in fact, the winner!
