Well the 2017 AARC hamfest is now in the books. Thanks to all that attended and special thanks to all the members that helped out in the effort to make this event happen.
In general the hamfest was pretty successful. The club made some money! The attendance was down by about 10 to 15% this year. We sold all the inside tables but there were a number open flea market spaces. The weather on Sunday was just absolutely fantastic. In fact one of the vendors said the weather was too nice? He said you want nice weather for a hamfest, but not too nice. Unseasonably nice weather has a way of changing peoples schedules. I will take the nice weather any day!!
I apologize for not taking any pictures but thanks to Dan WA8TVN for supplying an aerial photo. Dan piloted one of the two planes that I was aware of that flew in for the hamfest. There may have been more.
