at Dayton Hamvention - May 2009
The 2009 version of the Dayton Hamvention was a great success
with great weather, large crowds, loads of interest in the BB-62 and Museum
Ships Weekend. A very rough count indicates upwards to 700 attendees visited
the booth during the three day event.
|| A new site at the BB-62 Booth this year
was a new "display wall". We divided it into the different areas
of the ship we have worked on and showed the progression of each area over
the last 8 years. Margaret, KB2BRR and Beth, KB2EAL did a great job getting
this display together for the event.
| Thanks to the efforts of Martin ??????,
new Museum Ships Banners could be seen from a great distance away and really
drew in the people. We talked to lots of people who were very interested
in the event. In addition, we even collected a few more ships to be added
to the participation list.
Harry AAZS2WN, Charlie N3NQX, Dave WA2TVS
and Margaret KB2BRR manned the booth, when not roaming the other vendor
booths. We had a nice visit from member Gary Hollenbaugh, NJ8BB, who lives
in the Dayton area.
We also have to congratulate BNJARS member
Tom Williams who passed his "license" test at the Dayton VE session
and is now KC2VGB.
All in all a great trip and a lot of fun.
