Title: SIX METER CLUB HAMFEST -- WHEATON, ILLINOIS
Post by: N9LCD on June 20, 2017, 07:58:04 AM
Hats off to the Six Meter Club for another great Fest.

Attended the Fest Sunday, 18 June, at the DuPage County Fairgrounds.  If I make one Fest a year, it's Wheaton.

The venue is convenient -- at least if you're 1 3/4 miles off the end of 27 into ORD.

The admission is reasonable.  So are the concessions -- no $2.00 a cup for INSTANT COFFEE.

The venue is reasonably compact and fits the "crowd".

Facilities, including the heads, are in reasonably good shape for a public venue.

Drive-in and sell out of the trunk.  No tables required.  No dragging gear to & from the parking lot.

Not too many "What's That?" questions.

If more Fests were like Wheaton, Fests, in general, wouldn't be "in trouble".
