RaRa (Rochester NY) Hamfest Moves to New Location
« on: January 18, 2009, 11:51:32 PM »
The Rochester Amateur Radio Association (RaRa) is moving their hamfest to a new venue this year and cutting back to one day only:

I don't know how many years they were at the Monroe County Fairgrounds but it goes back to the 1960s when I first started going there. This once great 'fester hs been going downhill for several years and we hope that the new location will help it keep going.

JUNE 1st UPDATE: Looks like the move and change to one day were successful for them judging from the comments posted to their Web site.  We are especially glad to hear that the Rochester Hamfest will continue.  It was always one of my personal favorites since 1968!
