The History of the Whitney Nugget
(As told by Jane Eastman WA5JFZ)
We never had prizes, but as Net Secretary, I wrote everyone's name on a piece of paper and put them into this big coffee can, just in case we did have a prize.  Sometimes in April it is pretty windy, so I went out in the yard at Lake Whitney, picked up a big rock to hold the names down in the can.  I brought the can home and for "kicks" said "who would have won if we had a prize", I pulled out Lee Ulrey K5HZR, so when he and Emma visited us next I presented him the "Whitney Nugget".  He was so honored, we chose the most deserving one for the next year and so on.  At first it was just the rock that the recipient signed and passed on.
