The reason DARA hadn't moved Hamvention until they were forced to is it's likely every other possible venue would have cost them much more than HARA.  Be prepared to see either an uptick in the cost of Hamvention or a somewhat scaled-down event.

I won't miss the old rundown, crumbly arena with its nasty restrooms, exposed rat-nest of wiring, and sweaty smelly crowd of overweight hams. I hope a new venue will be larger, cleaner, and easy to get to.
Seriously, do hams deserve anything better than Hara? I think it is the ideal gathering place. No better place for smelly, cheap-ass, over-weight hams to buy tons of over-priced-junk. I'm serious, it was ideal.

I think that's a very small minority of hams.  As are(thankfully) holier-than-thou types looking down their noses at others.
Whether you're looking for the worst in people, or the best in people, you'll find it.
My company had a great run of 15 years at HARA, and I got to meet many truly wonderful hams.
I'm looking for 15 more wonderful years in the new location.  See you there.
