On behalf of the Acadiana Amateur Radio Association, Inc.  (AARA), we 
would like to thank all that attended our 52nd AARA Hamfest in Rayne, 
Louisiana over the weekend (Friday & Saturday March 9th & 10th).  I have 
heard from many of the attendees that this the best in a long, long 
time.  It's you Gals & Guys that make any Hamfest a success by attending 
and supporting our vendors.

Also thanks for all the helpers that help with unloading and loading, 
answering many inquires, and etc.   I could go on forever with the 
compliments but you know
who you are and you are greatly appreciated.  I will be sending out more 
via e-mails, HF Nets, and our club newsletters.

*Special Thanks* go to Glen Thibodeaux KF5FNP, /Assistant Hamfest 
Chairman/, for all the footwork, telephone contacts, & e-mails in 
getting our vendors together, donations of door prizes, and many other 
things, including overseeing that our hamfest runs smoothly.  Rick & Joy 
Breaux N5RLM & N5YCS, for managing our pre-registration and vendor and 
swap table assignment, and book keeping.

We would like to thank the /*Good Lord*/ for holding back the bad 
weather that was predicted for our hamfest, weather was not a problem.

Hope everyone had a /*GOOD TIME*/ and hope to see you again in 2013!  We 
would like to hear your comments!
