Dayton -- NPARC
enjoying a meal at Dayton (2007)
Members of NPARC have been attending
the Dayton Hamvention for at least the past 30 years -- and 2010
will be no different. We normally carpool and leave early on
Thursday morning (May 13th this year) planning to arrive in the
Dayton area in time for dinner that evening. By now we know all
the good restaurants in the Dayton area, so we don't bother with
MacDonalds or Burger Kings etc.
For the past five years or so we have been staying at the
Comfort Inn Wright Patterson in Fairborn Ohio, which is clean,
quiet and is not a long drive to the Hamvention. It is also much
less expensive than the Downtown Hotels.
Our normal procedure is to get to the Hamvention site early on
Friday, Saturday and Sunday AM when the flea market opens,
because we don't want to miss a minute. On Sunday we will remain
for the "bitter end" of the event because everyone who remains
will congregate in the main auditorium for a final drawing of
prizes, of which there are usually a great many. We often go
home with a significant prize.
If we get on the road by 3 PM on Sunday, we'll stop in Ohio for
dinner and then come straight back to NJ arriving after midnight
on Monday morning.
