    Listen up, because here's another problem:
    Anyone that is handicapped or in a wheelchair is completely screwed when it comes to the flea market area. They can't even get in there, let alone get around in the muck! That's a red flag as far as I'm concerned.

    Is that an opinion based on observation? :)

    IMO DARA did an excellent job for the scooter-dudes.

    Any complaints from the scooter-dudes?

    I definitely saw some golf carts tooling around in the flea area...I assumed that was part of the solution to the issue you mention.

    Heading to the flea market area...
    That's not a solution, that's a Band-Aid on the problem. If you want to get around in a wheelchair you by yourself you can't do it. My observation was there weren't any 'scooter dudes' as you so eloquently put it.

    Your criticisms lack merit, IMO.

    The picture is a silly attempt to convince others by portraying an image that did not exist from Hamvention 2018.

    I was there brother. I have no idea where you, your downed tree, and quicksand/mud came from. NOT from Hamvention.

    For decades, DARA has gone out of its way to help and accommodate the handicapped-- which includes several of its own members--at Hamvention.

    I can't explain your assertions other than to say, that, IMO, they are not informed by the weight of the reality..

    I think you should apologize to the good folks at DARA for this bogus characterization.

    The weight of the reality is, IMO, you're going to need your rubber galoshes when you go out there. Have fun, Chip!

    That picture was a joke, to make people laugh. It obviously didn't come from the Hamvention! Don't be stupid. It's all in fun so give me a break. Lighten up.

    All in fun.

    Some people can't take a joke. And if you can't accept criticism then that's not my problem.

    Need hip-waders for this thread as well. Perhaps Elon Musk will develop a hover-chair and rent them out for cheap next year?

    Can't remember how many car swap meets I've been to where it rained, and besides slogging around in the mud, you had to get Bubba to drag your car out when you got stuck. Just part of the fun. Like doing Field Day outdoors in 100+ degree weather, and Winter Field Day when you sweaty butt freezes to the stainless toilet seat at the campground.
    W1YW and KC0IVF like this.

    Yep, like I said before 'Goodbye Arena, Hello Fairgrounds'. Oh well...
    And yes, DARA has done a fine job....

    Cheap tickets mean limited venues.
