All in all, we had a very successful hamfest considering the bad 
weather.  Attendance was slightly down from last year,
crawfish sales were up (71 servings), the Hi Q Sweet Shop (Club Ladies) 
made record sales, Cafe CQ (kitchen) were
satisfied with sales, Bingo turned a profit, vendors seemed to be 
happy.  Everyone seemed to enjoy the hamfest, especially
the good food served and fellowship with other hams and friends.

Thanks to all the volunteers that helped unload and load the commercial 
vendors and to all those that helped make this
another GREAT hamfest.

I have set up a web page with pictures of our 56th AARA 2016 Hamfest at:
