Re: Richmond, VA Frostfest

I enjoyed it. Preliminary numbers show a record turnout and the nicer building was well, a lot nicer.

Re: Richmond, VA Frostfest

Right. Because the gun show is this weekend (31st and 1st), we've been able to get the main building all to ourselves. It's a little bigger and nicer than the others. Parking will be a lot easier too. I'll be selling tickets again at the door so I won't get to walk around until my shift ends in the ...

Re: Richmond, VA Frostfest

I'm not sure what happened but that restroom deteriorated fast. Good thing we volunteers had our own restroom in the other building. :ve4uo: This was the first time I didn't actually buy anything, but I'm OK with that. Really didn't see anything I had to have and spent most of my time hanging out wi...

Re: Richmond, VA Frostfest

Cool. I'll be guarding one of the doors then wandering around looking for deals. The RATS board is hoping for 2,500 attendees this year (had ~2,400 last year). Pre-show ticket sales have been strong. Weather should be good this year too. Not as warm as it was two days ago, but I'll take sunshine any...

Re: SHELBY!

I'd go if it wasn't a 6 hour drive away. Just a little too far for me and my time, sadly. I do know of several other hams from the Richmond area who are going, however.

Ha! The rightfully irritated Richmond Raceway janitor on hand was pretty certain of what it was.

Re: Richmond, VA Frostfest

I know it's long gone now but it was a pretty good show. Except someone took a shit outside the main entrance before we opened to the general public. Who does that? It wasn't some wild animal.

Richmond, VA Frostfest

Anyone in VA or nearby might want to go to the annual Frostfest at the Richmond Raceway Complex on Feb. 5, 2011. Usually a pretty good gathering and this year there'll be Yaesu, Icom, Alinco, Hilberling, Elecraft, Alpha Amplifiers, FlexRadio and a bunch of other lesser stuff. http://www.frostfest.com
