So tell us, Mr. Expert on Xenia... where should DARA have gone for Hamvention this year?

The IX Center in Cleveland.

You could put the entire thing (including the flea market) inside the building. There are hotels, eateries and an airport in close proximity to the complex.

Ah, but Cleveland is even further, distance-wise, from Dayton proper.

The IX center is a great facility. I've been to many auto shows and RV shows there over the years.
It has a 125' tall indoor ferris wheel that extends 30' above the roof within a glass atrium.
During WW2 they first built bombers at that facility. Later it was used to build tanks.
It's a huge facility with over 1.2 million square feet of exhibit space all on one level, 26 meeting rooms, 7200 paved onsite parking spaces,
40 acres of outdoor space, direct access right off a 6 lane highway, and it's adjacent to the airport. It could certainly handle ALL of Hamvention with ease.

But ...
1) There aren't really a lot of hotels nearby. Within a 15 minute drive there are plenty though.
2) Since it's a 3 1/2 hour drive to Dayton, it's way too far to transport DARA volunteers.

On the plus side, it's only 10 minutes from my house!

It might not matter to traveling attendees, but it certainly matters to the people putting on the event.

Agreed. Do you really think all the DARA volunteers will travel to Cleveland and get the job done as they do now?
