The MGEF Roster

This is the un-official MGEF roster... this is a partial list of the folks that are a part of, or have been part of, the MGEF group directly or indirectly. Because of the dynamic number of people that this entails I am always adding names as I get them. -ed.

The roster includes the folks that come to the mountain for the contest weekends as well as other contributing folks whom are condidered part of the "MGEF family." One such category are some of the rovers whom without we would not have had continued success that we have to date. In addition the roster also includes those that we consider to be MGEF alumni of the group.

Are you part of the MGEF crew and not listed? Your info out of date? Want to be removed? Send your info/request to john @t barenys.com and I'll gladly take care of it.

The roster sorted chronologically:


Note: The roster is sorted in a rough time line. It is a rough chronological sort based on when the person got involved with the MGEF group. If I did not have the "exact" date I took a guess as to where in the order a listing was. - ed.

The roster sorted by call sign:
