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.

    Larry, the Adventure Radio Society seems to be relying on a blog-based website now, at least as far as the Spartan Sprint goes (http://www.arsqrp.blogspot.com/). Considering that someone (Richard?) just updated it with the latest Spartan Sprint results, maybe this is the way to go to establish communications.

    Does this help at all?

    FOBB is one of those events that I want to do, plan to do, and will do when the planets align just right for my schedule. I hope it remains on the calendar for next year.

    Followup: Richard just posted this month’s Spartan Sprint results on QRP-L. The e-mail address he used was his callsign at aol.com.

    Does anyone know what is happening with the Flight of the Bumblebees event? Will there be one in July as in previous years ?
