Hamfest 2013

The MARA Annual Christmas Hamfest, one of our most enjoyable activities, was held this year on December 21, 2013. This popular event always draws participants, including dealers and sellers for the swap tables from surrounding area and states. As always, there was plenty to see and do for everyone, including testing sessions, great food, and many door prizes and main prizes to provide that "hamfest fix" during the Christmas season.
