Joplin Hamfest 2015 Report

The Joplin Hamfest was held on August 21-22 this year – it was the 26th time the club has put on the local hamfest. The Hamfest Committee did a lot of work organizing the Hamfest, and it showed, they did a great job and we only heard positive feedback about the event! Now that the numbers have all been tallied, we had over 1,000 attendees, including public and swap table vendors.

Despite torrential rain and flooding on Saturday, we had a good turnout, and there were 3 presentations in the Joplin Hotel next door. We gave out many great prizes in the drawing, including a grand prize of a complete HF station to one lucky winner.

Thanks to all who attended, and hope to see you back next year!

Photos will be added to an album and posted soon. If you have any photos of the Hamfest you’d like to add to our page, please email k0jaa@arrl.net.
