Hamfest 2010

The MARA Annual Christmas Hamfest, one of our enjoyable activities, was held this year on December 18, 2010. 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, special classes and great food. Door prizes and main prizes were given and provided that "hamfest fix" during the Christmas season.

Putting on a hamfest is tiring, especially if you were up all night helping to make it happen.
