We attended the much touted Great Lakes Hamcon and left more than a little disappointed.
The venue was great, lots of room for the flea market, and fine parking, all on asphalt or concrete, unlike the disaster at Xenia this year. But with all the hype, and with so many clubs involved, it was really a small turnout. We walked the whole event through TWICE and were on our way out in less than an hour. If this event wants to compete with Dayton / Xenia or any of the other big ones, they have a long way to go. Granted this was the first year, so some growing pains are expected, still not much of a showing. The Hamcon website needed work too. It was impossible to get a message through to them, and navigating the site just kept bringing us back to the same page.
Sorry GL Hamcon, you get a " D " on the score card this time around. Sure miss Dayton, even with all its problems.
