Nick Roethe DF1FO of Germany shows off his two-meter Visitor gold medal.

The were some special awards just for fun at the ceremony. Karla Leach KC7BLA (at left) presented a toy limousine to Barbara Johnston (wife of KE6HTS) because she had teasingly asked for a limo to get her to the two-meter starting area.
Brigitte Roethe, Vadim Afonkin and George Neal KF6YKN are ready for the 80-meter starting tone. They will win gold medals again on this band.
Emily DeYoung K4MLE carefully studies her map before the 80-meter start. Competitors receive their maps only ten minutes before they start. Emily will win another gold medal.
Bill Smathers KG6HXX of Santa Barbara waits at the 80-meter starting line.
Brian DeYoung K4BRI led this group in the starting corridor, followed by Harley Leach KI7XF and Nick Roethe DF1FO. All will win medals.
