There will be a $5.00 per table charge for hams and vendors with a two-table maximum. Set up a table to make some room in your shack for that new radio you have been looking at and recycle some of your older equipment to another Ham. Maybe set up a table to show off your favorite aspect of the hobby. (Free tables will be available for anyone wishing to present only No selling!) Can you demonstrate your logging program, do a satellite demo, showoff your home brew antennas? This day is for "us"(you), to socialize with each other, make new friends and catch up with old friend.

STARC would like to thank all of the AROs and their families that showed up yesterday for our annual hamfest. The weather was near perfect and the new location provided for a most enjoyable time.

There were many door prizes given with most every one present getting at least one. Thank you to HRO, DX Engineering, ARRL, Shaggy's Pizza, MFJ, and others for the door prizes. A big thank you to Steven KC1USA for picking all of the door prize tickets for us. Thank you to all of the vendors that had items for sale/to buy in the fleamarket area.

Nick KB1RWB was the first ARO to find our hidden fox transmitter. Good job RWB!

If you were not able to attend, you missed a good time. We hope to see you next year.
