Hamfest 2016 Update

Hamfest - SwapfestI know I sent out an email last week concerning the hamfest, but I just want to give you an update.  We have received commitments from additional vendors for various raffle prizes, four additional ones since last week.  Here is the latest list:

  • GigaParts – In addition to providing Bucket Prizes, they’ve sent us discount vouchers to pass out with every ticket purchase.
  • ARRL – two $50 and two $25 gift certificates;
  • DX Engineering – one $50 Gift Certificate plus catalogs with discount vouchers included.
  • Tigertronics – one USB Interface;
  • N3FJP/Scott Davis – one downloadable Logging Software Suite;
  • KJI Electronics – one Gift Certificate.
  • Radio Oasis – G5RV antenna
  • RF Adapter Guy – gift certificate
  • Ham Call/Buckmaster – Ham Call CD
  • Hy-Gain – raffle prize
  • Diamond Antennas – raffle prize
  • True Ladderline – raffle prize

In addition, we expect vendor K1CRA Radio to attend on site, offering antennas, connectors, adapters, and other accessories.

Finally, we have … not one, not two, not three, but FOUR “bucket prizes” which will be raffled off just like we do in our Spring swapfest.  GigaParts has provided us with a discount for these bucket prizes.  We will be selling tickets at $5 each or 3 for $10, that you can place in the bucket for appropriate prize you want.  Here is a list of the available items:

  • LDG-Pro III tuner   ZLD-AT-200Pro II
  • Icom IC-2730A dual band mobile
  • Yaesu FT-2DR  mobile rig
  • Rig Expert Antenna analyzer ZRE-AA-170

Remember, Sunday, Sept 11 at the Saratoga County Fairgrounds.  Gates open at 7 AM.  I am attaching a PDF of the HAMFEST 2016 Flyer, and I hope you will distribute it to all your friends.
