AARA 56th Annual Hamfest - Rayne, Louisiana  March 11 & 12, 2016

We are proud to announce that David  Assaf III W5XU, who was one of the 
members of the DXpedition to South Sandwich VP8STI and South Georgia 
VP8SGI, will be giving a forum at our hamfest Saturday, March 12. This 
will be the FIRST hamfest presentation covering this DXpedition 
(http://www.intepid-dx.com/vp8/index.php) to the South Pole. Come to our 
hamfest and hear firsthand how David W5XU and the rest of the team 
risked life and limb so HAM Operators could log these rare contacts. 
Because David W5XU has many personal stories to share and hundreds of 
photographs, this will be the last forum of the day.

Some hams and vendors have requested permission to put firearms related 
items on their tables. The City of Rayne is allowing this. Expect to see 
holsters, scopes, reloading supplies, gun cases, stocks, ammo cans, 
parts and other firearm related items on vendor tables. In addition to 
some individual tables having items, we have two vendors with tables. 
Essential Arms (http://www.essentialarms.com/) who specializes in AR-15 
parts and accessories and Landry Guns (http://www.landryguns.com/)who is 
a Class 3 dealer. _*Just be clear that *__*NO FIREARMS*__*are allowed in 
the building. Just firearm related items only.
