> Hi all,
> this link may interest some of the long time local foxhunters on the list: http://youtu.be/JDRbKTilXXM
> It is a video of the very first EMDRC Balloon Launch which took place in 1991, the actual video shows the launch process and a little bit about the foxhunt process followed by a long presentation at the EMDRC meeting.
> There is vision of plenty of the foxhunters from around that time including some of the VK3YQN team. What surprised me was the images of Robert Broomhead VK3DN (TRB in those days) and Bryan VK3YNG (no wonder VK3AW nicknamed you "school boy" Bryan you looked so young.)
> The video does go on for a bit but is great to reminisce. (especially 28.09)
> This was the first launch and it was followed by another 3 over the next few years. I have seen vision of the following launches but not sure where the tape got to.
> Cheers, VK3WWW Jack.
