It has been a couple of years since I had been able to attend. This is one of my favorite fests, not necessarily for the size, but for the array of amateur equipment, pretty fair starter pricing, and most of all, the friendliness of the vast majority of attendees. Gish, it is great! I was able to reconnect with several of my freinds, as well as made some new aquaintences. The sponsoring club does a wonderful job. If you get the opportunity to attend the next one, don't pass it by. Dayton (xenia), Orlando, and Belton are my three favorites for this end of the country.
