The below email went to the 140+ Arizona Outlaws today. Several of the  
members thought it would be good to share with CQ-Contest and N0AX as  well.

To all Arizona Outlaws;
Five years ago today, June 5, 2009, email  invitations began the  
for the Arizona Outlaws Contest Club. It took  less than a  day to attract 
56 paid members and 83 members within 3 days. It grew   to over 120 members 
within a month.

Since then we have grown to one  of  the finest contest clubs in the USA. 
Check out our Accomplishments,  on the club  webpage. Some fairly 
line items   there:


The   original AOCC "Founding Five" group were;
AB7E, K7WP, K8IA, KC7V and   N7RQ

The November/December 2010 National Contest Journal had AOCC  as  their 
Club Spotlight". Great history, 

The above were  joined by W7ZR  making our first group of officers/BOD, and 
they served  in these positions thru  May 2013

help our scores. Help is available to   all.
