I am sorry I missed out on it at the old location. It is not the location that makes Dayton, Dayton, it is the people!

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!
