Last year, My son and I went to the Bismarck Hamfest, where I took the test and earned my Extra license, and my son became a Technician. We drove out the night before and spent the night in a hotel, so we could get there as soon as things got started. Michelle and Jason (KCØLAC & KCØGCJ) were also there, and we had a really good time.
I am planning to go, again, this year (2018), as well. Since this is the hamfest that I earned my Extra licanse, I really have a special place in my heart for it. I didn’t actually spend any money on anything, last year, but this year, I have a little bit more incentive, so we’ll see what happens.
This year, the Bismarck Hamfest is on February 24th. Same times and same place as last year.
Once again, if anybody would like to ride out with us, please let me know. We will probably spend the night in a hotel, so that we can get there when if first opens, again (I don’t feel like driving out at 5AM). I’ll find the best deal on a hotel that I can… I’m an insider, so I know where to look.
If you want the countdown and more information, take a look at the CDARCND website.
