Congratulations John Sluymer VE3EJ!

I was delighted to read that John, VE3EJ had been 'inducted' into the CQ Contest Hall of Hame this weekend at the Dayton Hamvention.Here's what the citation had to say:"The 2011 inductee to the CQ Contest Hall of Fame is John Sluymer, VE3EJ. Sluymer has been an active contester and DXer since 1973 and is a founding member and current President of Contest Club Ontario, which has grown from 16 to 250 members in less than a decade. He also holds numerous Canadian domestic and DX contest records, was named the 2006 Radio Amateur of the Year by the Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC). A frequent host for single- and multi-op contest operations from his station, Sluymer is a longtime member of the CQ WW Contest Committee and a frequent speaker at hamfest forums and club meetings"Congratulations, John! I had the genuine pleasure of getting to know John when I worked in Toronto, Canada during the late 1990s. John is everything it says there, but lots more too. He's a genuinely warm and great guy. He and his wife, Hazel have welcomed me to their house on many occasions - radio related and non radio-related! Though I've not seen John in a few years now, we run across each other on the bands from time to time and it's always great to hear from him.Well done John !
