1999 Awards:

"Hounds on paw" KB1DMR and N1QOV 3rd place on foot at a mobile hunt 10/24/99!
"Most creative Hound"  KB1DMR on bicycle !

"Rookie of the year Award" goes to KB1EAA For first season attempts at hunting, We had two new hunters and they were both new ham's this year. Pierre (KB1DMR), was our first ever Biker/hunter. Pierre, while teamed up with O.B. was also the first team to finish a hunt while on FOOT (third place to boot!). Clearly KB1EAA and RoAnne were at the top of the heap enough. New ham and New hunter. All 5 hunts were finished in the top3! With his wife (RoAnne) driving they are quite a team!
Since this years award for "We Try Harder" was won by the same team the award was merged.
"We Try Harder" goes to KB1EAA Dave, and RoAnne for getting 2nd place 4 times in the 1999 season and no firsts! (Humor). One third. This team has done the near impossible. These folks have been in the top three for 5 of the 8 hunts this season.

"Frank Woodstock memorial hunt September 1999",  Winner was John WA1ZHM. Since this is a club memorial award I printed a special one.

These two were merged as well.
"ESP" award, For the T-Hunter that seems to do well for unknown reasons! John WA1ZHM.
"Best Fox" 1999 John WA1ZHM for the Dead fox hunt in the cemetery.

Left over from last year:
"Best Fox" 1998 N1XHR/KB2SAE for the Ski Basin at Jiminy Peak ?

Awards un-claimed:
"DNF" Did Not Finish award ? most times or worst attempt that resulted in a DNF? (Humor)

"Largest team" (Shows some effort in getting others involved) ?

"Longest hunt" longest time to have first place team find the fox. KE3HT Pittsfield Parking garage hunt?

"Fox on the prairie" Easiest fox to find ! KB2SAE 8/22/99. 39 minutes for all 6 teams to touch down.
