This new category is about reports on recent hamfests that you've attended. This forum is moderated so that the signal-to-noise ratio shall remain high. The purpose of this forum is to report on how hamfests that are advertised on these pages actually turned out and whether you would recommend the event for someone returning next time. To start a new report, please give it the title of (Hamfest Name) followed by Date, such as: Shelby Hamfest - 9/5/2010 Hamfest reports should be factual and describe the approximate number of tables participating as well as a general estimate of the overall attendance. You should also describe the weather (if outdoors) and if people were camping the night before. You may comment on the organization, how you believe the event was managed, whether access was convenient, etc.. Photos are highly encouraged. A good way to post photos is to upload them to a photo site (we use Picasa) and then link them into your article. Comments are also allowed however all are reviewed and those that fail to contribute to the report in a meaningful way will not be approved.
