The at the 2006 Green Country Hamfest!
TRO at 2006 GREEN COUNTRY HAMFEST
By: Steve Miller - AA5V TRO Treasurer
The TRO booth at the 2006 Green Country Hamfest (GCHF) was a success once again and it was a bit profitable, too!
Before the hamfest
ever started, Ben Joplin - WB5VST (the TRO's new
President) and myself tried to bring in some equipment donated to
Ben by an estate that he (Ben) is going to split the proceeds
between the TRO and the widow. "Tried" is about
all we got to do before almost all was sold. We had planned on
bringing it in and pricing it before the public entered at 1700.
Lesson learned: Do not plan on entering the hamfest without your
pricing already set. The dealers will drive you nuts!
Lurene Ockerman - KB5BQB and Mark Conklin N7XYO (Green Country committee - Public Relations) did an excellent job on the microphone keeping everyone up to date on the goings on at the hamfest.
Another great showing
at the Green Country Hamfest for the TRO!
