Greater Houston Hamfest Meeting - Saturday, April 8th, 2017

The BOD meeting and Hamfest wrap-up is Saturday, April 8th, 2017. Please mark your calendars accordingly!
But I do hope you had a great time at the Greater Houston Hamfest. We had a great turn out this year. There are a ton of people that helped on putting the Hamfest together but I want to thank two people that really put things together. Peter Sauermilch and Donovan Bali were really the anchors on the Hamfest this year and without their help, the Hamfest would have not happened.
Thanks Pete and Donovan.

Again the Board of Directors meeting and Hamfest wrap-up is April 8th. I will send out a notice this time next week.
