Club member Royce Seymour, AJØJD, submitted the following photos of our club’s participation in the Double Dirty Thirty Run held south of Silverton, Colorado, in September, 2016. Aid Station 3 was at 11,300 feet above sea level.
Club members Tom and Kate Palmieri, whom we see during the summer months, are safe in the East Coast flooding. They send this picture and note that their home is high and dry and that they have all utilities, even though there has been flooding and utility issues near them. The newspaper headline reads “We Weren’t Quite Expecting It.”
Our club, continuously active for over 50 years, is an ARRL-affiliated, general interest club serving a large swath of beautiful southwestern Colorado, including Montrose, Delta, Cedaredge, Paonia, Hotchkiss, Olathe, Lazear, Ridgway, Ouray, Telluride, Naturita, Nucla, Gunnison, and others. Our meetings are the third Friday of every month (except December) at 7:00 p.m. at the Olathe Community Center.
