This will be an old-fashion tailgate event where hams can get together, chew over old times and embellish their recollections of ham radio past. You can buy, sell or trade your ham related gear and visit with all of your ham radio friends. This tailgate event carries on in the tradition started by Ralph Polston, K9SEW, some years ago when he started having tailgates in his side yard. We are trying to maintain the spirit of those events and perhaps widen the circle of folks who might come visit with us. See you there. 73
