Egg Hunts/Fox Hunt every hour 10AM – 5PM
Vista View Park – Shelter 1
“The Only Egg Hunt In America With Kids, K9’s and Radio Direction Finding”
Bring the kids for a FREE* event guaranteed to be fun and educational
Egg hunt = something people immediately recognize and kids might be interested in. The fact that we mix a fox hunt into it as a radio club is what makes our egg hunt unique.
Fox hunt = an activity unique to amateur radio where people use radio equipment to locate a hidden transmitter. Radio location goes well beyond amateur radio, but hams do “fox hunts” for fun. Fox Hunts are sometimes part of Civil Air Patrol looking for transponders on downed aircraft. A fox hunt is part of our egg hunt event.
Seeking volunteers (hams) to provide fox hunting equipment, and to participate as fox hunters for teams that participate in hunts.
