    Good Luck Shawn ! Cold and possible rain on Saturday. The pavillion should give you all plenty of cover. The fireplaces might come in handy to.

    I heard them on 2 meters this morning guiding people to the pavaillion where they are set up. Very foggy up on Mt. Cheaha, but they have their antennas up. Several other club members are headed up there. Clearing weather this afternoon. If you do go up, take rain gear and a jacket or coat. It gets windier up there than it typically is down here in the valley. And the temperatures are going to drop later today.

    Good luck. I wonder how the contest is going to effect your event, hopefully you'll be able to find a sliver of bandspace to work.

    I'll try calling, not sure if I'll be able to make the trip or not. I'm afraid I'm in that window of being too close for skip and too far for groundwave, we'll see.
