Nice writeup.  One caveat - you said KU8E help start the the Ohio QSO 
party.  Actually the Ohio QSO Party existed long before Mad River Radio 
Club took it over.  I'm sure of this fact because I help mediate a 
controversy between two rival groups, one from the Dayton Area, another 
from Central Ohio, each which put in to sponsor the event back when I 
was Section Communications Manager in the 70's. I think that was 1976 or 
so, maybe earlier.  Even before then, the Ohio QSO party existed.

However, it must be said that continuity of sponsorship, and placing the 
date firmly on the calendar from year to year really helps with the 
participation.  So, congrats to the Mad River Radio Club on another 
great event.  CU from some portable location (if the good Lord's willin' 
and the creek don't rise), in Central Ohio on August 23, 2014.

Have fun in Dayton!
