I am sorry I missed out on it at the old location. It is not the

That's a good thing -- the HARA location had several important virtues
-- 1) large outdoor areas for flea market and parking, 2) large indoor
areas for exhibits and presentations, 3) geographic location within a
day's drive of many hams, 4) it was CHEAP.
Do be sorry that you missed the Hamvention so far, but don't be at all
sorry that you missed out on HARA -- it was a DUMP. It's a tribute to
those who put on so many Hamventions there that they made it work for
us. When the announcement that it was closing was posted, one prominent
NCCC member volunteered to contribute to the dynamite to blow it up!
