Whitman ARC Winterfest 23 - January 21, 2023

Post by W1KNE »

[Great way to break up winter is by going to the Whitman ARC Winterfest.

Note New Venue

January 21, 2023 - 9am to 1pm.

38 Franklin St, East Bridgewater

Easy to get to, easy to park. Always a fun time. Great gathering of locals too.

Only $5 to enter, and there are raffle prizes! (Tables are $15.)

I'll be there.

Always a good time. I will be there as well perhaps we should schedule a lunch in the area? Not sure what would be the best talk in frequency in that area.

Exact address is 38 Franklin St, East Bridgewater, MA. Hours are the same, opening to buyers at 9, sellers at 7. PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD!
Please join us at our annual Whitman ARC Winterfest hamfest! Saturday January 21, 2023 9 AM - 1 PM. Admission is $5 for buyers, $15/table for sellers which includes admission. Seller setup at 7. Steve W1OD and his team will be there offering VE exams. For more info, visit WA1NPO.org


We had several folks (myself included) planning to meet at 8am at the Cowbell Cafe. Is that too far away now???

I just checked on Google Maps. It's only 3 miles, 6 minutes away. I'd say it's NOT too far, and will still be a good place to eat for breakfast.

Coverage for both the 147.225 and 927.6875 repeaters will be even better at this location. This new venue is located basically right between the 2 of them!

I was told that this was a possibility earlier today, but wanted to wait for confirmation. Glad to see that they got it sorted out.

We're peace loving people, we're not hunting trouble, but if trouble should find us, we'll stand up and fight.

Good seeing everyone today! Sorry I was too busy helping out at the flea for the breakfast or lunch. I think everything came together quite well considering the last minute venue change.
