Only a person with low intelligence would believe that any venue would not have had animals in it at some point. And unless the vendors are complete morons...they already know that.

Even Hara was a venue for a (and maybe more than one) rodeo. Never seen a true rodeo without horses and cattle. So what makes Xenia any different? Just because they don't call it a rodeo?

You know how it is with animals at any venue, when they gotta go, they go. They don't ask for permission. And the venue owners expect and plan for it.

Must be that magic invisible stuff again.

Some have very low standards (like DARA) and have no reservations about charging top dollar to use converted livestock barns for vendors and crowds and the sheep being sheep do not care. If they took time to visit place in summer they would see first hand what those buildings a NORMALLY used for and better understand where I am coming from and why they picked it because it was dirt-cheap. 

your aversion to non-human mammals, and to any decision DARA makes, is noted (with amusement)  Smiley

So, the IRS will soon put the Hara Arena up for auction.  Minimum bid is only $850K.

They'd have to pay someone to take it.

If every ham in the U.S. just donated just $5.00, we could pay off the lien and have some money left over for refurbishing the building and grounds.

You can't get every ham in the US to even renew their licenses.

Nuts-The hamfest should be relocated to Columbus, Chicago or Indy.  Shouldn't matter much since the Orlando fest is gaining about 10% ridership each year and should eclipse Dayton soon.

Great idea!   

When are YOU going to start organizing it?

If no one is doing it that way, there is a probably a very good reason.

It does not rocket science or a lot of side deals to do it if not being held in a barn yard and in mud. Unlike Xenia, Columbus fair grounds would mostly be a turn key operation because of more interior air conditioned vendor space than they will ever remotely need, lots of flea market space, good highway access, adequate lodging/dining close by, good airport connections and even on site parking is not a issue.

Only politics keeps it from moving to a proper venue...

Another way to look at it is DARA is just as stubborn as JX. And neither side is wrong by their own accounts. And so it goes on................

Time to get the magic invisible manure ready. Looks like JX will need it again. No real manure to move except his own.

N9AOP and W8JX - co-chairmen of the newest and best hamfest in the USA.   Feel free to make the announcement of when and where.

Wrong.  DARA's income stream does.  It's spelled M-O-N-E-Y.  If I lived in Dayton, or close by, I'd join DARA.  I hear the members receive some fine incentive gifts.  Probably no dues either.  Perhaps DARA contributes generously to Newington as well.......

Problem is nothing will change. ARRL is married to Dayton. Same with all the major vendors. And as long as both make the trip to Dayton...nothing else matters. Orlando may ultimately get to be bigger in participation, but there is that Dayton thing again.

So it really matters to a lot of people or Dayton would have died in the Hara stink hole a long time ago.

If that's the rational, then the hamfest should be moved to Lebanon, Kansas.
