Flight of the Bumblebees 2012

After a couple of private e-mail inquiries, I've decided to address this here.

To be honest with you all, the fate of FOBB 2012 is unclear at best.

I sent an e-mail off to Rich Fisher KI6SN asking if he wanted me to manage it again this year.  So far, I have received no response.  Also the ARS Wiki and the pages containing last years' results and those of prior years seem to have vanished.

Maybe Rich has decided to do something different with FOBB for 2012 - not sure what is going on.

If I hear anything, you all will be the first to know.

  1. How about just having the event anyway? Without a response we have to assume it's not important to anyone but we who want to participate. Why not call it FOBB Enhanced or Evolved or just leave the title as FOBB?

  3. Larry, if anyone can take the bull by the horns, errrr, the bee by the stinger, it's u. You're probably tired of being dumped on, yet at the same time you don't want to appear as a bully. Beeing the event is drawing near in time, I'd say go ahead with it. I understand a bee number is good for life. Do u have the bee list? 72, Ken, WA8REI
