Now we can put to bed every winters rumors on IF/WHERE/WHEN the Dayton
Hamvention is going to be held or moved to.

> The Dayton Hamvention will be staying put for at least a few more years, and 
> definitely through the year 2000, when it will be the site of the ARRL 
> National Convention. Hamvention and Hara Arena officials this week announced 
> a five-year contract to keep the Hamvention in Dayton. That's the longest 
> contract in their business relationship. According to a report by Angela 
> Townsend in the Dayton Daily News, there had been talk that the Hamvention 
> might leave Dayton for Columbus, Indianapolis, or even Atlanta after its 
> current contract expired in one year.
> Hara Arena President Johnny Walker estimated that the Hamvention brings in 
> $7 million in revenue each year to the Dayton area. Approximately 28,000 
> attended the 1997 Hamvention. The 1998 Dayton Hamvention will be held May 
> 15-17. Advance tickets are on sale now for $15. Write Hara Arena Conference 
> Center, 1001 Shiloh Springs Rd, Trotwood, OH 45415.--thanks to Bev Priest,
