I'm heading down to Hamvention for my first time and I wondered if anyone else from the area was?

Hi John,

I'll be there, we have a booth every year. Offhand I believe the booth number is 3303. Please look us up and stop by. Also we're staying at the Marriott on Patterson in Dayton if you happen to be staying there or nearby, sometimes it's easier to meet there than at the booth which sometimes can get crazy.

Anyone else coming please stop by the booth and say hello.

Hi Rich, Will do! I'm staying at the Home2 Suites by Hilton in Centerville. Being my first time I'm not sure how close that is to Dayton but I will figure that all out. Need to find somewhere to watch the Bruins game as NBC Sports doesn't appear in many hotels room systems.

Hello,

Centerville is a pretty good location. I stayed slightly further away in Miamisburg and travel was no problem. I got on I-675 North and got off at US 35 East exit. There are exits off of US 35 to go to the fairgrounds or the satellite parking lots.

Have fun!
