    WRTC 2018 was for me a huge event, it was 600 kilometers away from my home, i worked there as volunteer (my VOTA nr is DL-226), only as a simple working bee but felt happy to keep the generator running, building up the tent, make the driving for the competitors and the referree etc etc etc. On my site we had an american team from Oregon, the behaviour of the american guys could not be better, they were the best ambassadors a country can send to Europe, and as referee there was YU1LA (an excellent man!!!). Many stories could be told e.g. in the night when i was guarding the equipment i felt down over a sleeping rabbit, saw two foxes who tried to open the door o fthe camping toilet, and a lot of bambis (what is the correct word for that?) in the morning hours. I will never forget that event!!! By the way... the next WRTC is 2022 in Italy, area Emilia Romana, the HQ hotel will be inBologna.

    I was impressed by the huge effort of all the DL hams who showed up to volunteer for WRTC 2018. Many slept in campers and tents for the better part of a week to serve as site leaders and site crew people. It was pretty hot on certain days and rather rainy on one day (Wednesday). I certainly appreciated the efforts of the site team at my side (HLZ-2) who kept us fed, caffeinated, and in good spirits. The team for which I was a referee (OR2F and ON5KA) appreciated it as well.

    Well done DARC, BCC, and the amateur community in DL as a whole.

    Fawns. But lots of people call them "Bambis" here, too.
