Dear Michigan Amateur Radio Club Members and Friends,
Once again, it is that time of year when lots of hams around the world start thinking of the Dayton Hamvention. After all, with 28,000 attendees from all amateur radio interest areas, what’s not to like!
Don’t you wish you were going? You’re not looking forward to that long drive? Don’t drive! Take the Arrow bus! It’s inexpensive and easy. Even if you come from out of the Metro Detroit Area, you still relieve yourself of more than 8 hours of drive time!
As in years past, The Arrow Communication Association is sponsoring a bus trip from Ann Arbor, Michigan to the Greene County Fairgrounds and Expo Center in Xenia, Ohio and back. The date is Saturday, May 16. We leave the park-and-ride at 5:00 am (show up a bit earlier for free continental breakfast!) and get to the show at 9:00 am. We leave Xenia at 5:30 pm and arrive back to our large park-and-ride site by 9:30 pm. What more could you ask for?
We have had riders from both the Lower and Upper Peninsulas of Michigan and passengers from several areas of Ontario!
Please Note: We have kept our rate the same this year ($55 before April 1 and $65 on April 1 and after). IT WILL GO UP NEXT YEAR! You get the same deal (for the last time!) even though our bus rental rate has gone up every year from 2017 and onward.
There is more. If you want to sell your stuff in the flea market, we have reserved a space there just for you! Every year, Arrow reserves a swap spot just for the bus trip crowd. You save $70.00. All we ask is that you keep your items to a reasonable limit and that you volunteer at least one hour of your time at the swap tables.
The cost is $55.00 for the round trip. (This increases to $65.00 on or after April 1.) Please mail all applications to ARROW Communication Association, 2545 S. Lima Center Rd., Chelsea, MI 48118. Please note that this does not include the Hamvention ticket. That one you’ll have to do yourself! You may also use the link below to purchase a seat using PayPal.
We are trying to generate as much publicity as possible, which is why we are writing you. If you can, please share this information as widely as you are able. If you have a web page and/or a Facebook page, please consider adding a link to https://w8rp.org/activities/dayton-bus-trip/. Talk it up on the air! If you check into a state wide or regional net, please mention it there, also. Feel free to include us in your publications.
Also, click on our link to see all of our bus prize contributors of 2019. Our top gift in May of last year was a Begali Expedition Paddle. Digi Key Electronics was second with an Analog Devices PLUTO SDR Experimenter’s Kit. And that was not all!….
We at Arrow deeply appreciate your help in this matter and we thank you.
