Well, I sure hope they don't move the date again. When they changed the last time, they moved into or close to the date of several good local hamfests, which then had to change dates too, of course. The Wheeling hamfest (WV) in particular was destroyed and ceased to exist. The ones shifted forward into colder weather could not afford all-indoor facilities, but it was too cold for flea-marketing, so they fell to half their previous size. So the last Dayton date change was a disaster for hamfesting around Western PA.

It always rained ( or 12 years back it did snow ) in April - thats why they
shifted the date. Nevertheless, at least the last two years it was a real

This was the first time in 18 years I missed it. There is always 2005.

Any truth to the rumor that this is the last year at the Hara. Probably just
another urban legend like the one about them moving the Hamvention to
Cleveland. HI.

Butler, PA. is only a few weeks now.
