Charlotte NC March 8th & 9th

Post by Mong » Wed Feb 13, 2008 10:22 pm

http://www.w4bfb.org/hamfest2008/hamfest.html


I'll be there Saturday this year, going to take off the 3p-11p part of my shift so I can stay all day and have fun. Sunday has less people and several venders left Saturday as well, but there are not too many two-day hamfests in this area so I guess we're lucky to have the chance to go on a Sunday.

Anyone of you SC guys planning on attending? I could scout out a suitable place food afterwards :baby:


Saturday 8:30am to 5:00pm
Sunday 9:00am to 1:00pm
I'll take a warm midget fart over a cold beer any day

guess no one else will be there?
Hamsexy is like peeing your pants.
Everyone can see it but only you feel its true warmth.
But then you get old and pee in your pants while wizzing around in you hamabout.

I was just going to bump this and remind anyone. I'm the only one holding down this part of NC as far as I know, I know Uncle Tom won't be coming up from the "Greater Anderson Society of Mature Amateur Nuts"


On behalf of my tech-class brothers, I'll be leading the Metropolitan Island of Dx Gets Every Tech Society

I'll be there Saturday, but will be heading out no later than 2pm since I'll be needed at work at 3pm, but that gives me plenty of time to go broke.


If only C&E would schedule a show there on the same weekend, that'd be sure to bring more people to both shows.

I just found out a buddy of mine from OH will be visiting his brother in Charlotte, they are both hams and will be attending the Charlotte Hamfest this Saturday. I really can't afford the cost of fuel there and back alone, but will be glad to drive. I'm not sure if Dorey will go or not as she seems to have outgrown hanging out with Dad for hamfests, so, if about three of you would like to ride with and chip in $20 each for fuel, that would be great........ please let me know!

I am asking a bazillion of you in hopes of finding three who will split the cost, naturally though, if others volunteer to drive and multitudes will plan to attend, that would be even better! :cheeseandwhine:

Dude, I hope not..... Brad may be busy too and i can't get ahold of Jason...... I'm not a cheap skate, if the hamfest was what it was 10 years ago, it would be different (some commercial gear, a few hammie dealers), but, to burn up like $50 or $60 worth of fuel to look at a dozen tables of Beanie Babies, ear rings & bracelets. a 20 year old Azden 2m rig and a Workman 2m/440 antenna..... I will likely pass unless I have a few home slices to ride up with to split the cost, have someone to talk to and eat with. Hell, I can stay at home, have a good meal and get piss in my pants drunk at Corbitt's for less than $60. :baby:

That does suck, you're the only one who can hold a camera steady enough for the pictures to come out right :baby:


Well guys, which of the SC hamfests this spring is the best to go to? I've got quite a bit of vacation time built up and could burn up a little to make the day & night long stay in SC worth while for a night of wacky adventures.


Plus being able to see Uncle Tom get "piss in my pants drunk" sounds like fun :baby:

Perhaps it would suck anyway. Weather Channel is calling for snow, sleet and rain for Saturday.
Well, that's what they say now anyway.

Yeah, I always forget about that one. I'm only 30 miles away, of course next month (after my move) I'll be 50 miles away, but I will still shoot for it, depending on my schedule. I'm going to start to restudy for my general and test the 15th in Gastonia, then I can try at Morganton if I need to.



If I had a little faggy car that got 40mpg I'd hit all the hamfests as hard as I hit midgets :baby:

Prius? It's like they're afraid to say penis.
That's it, get you a penis. What's that like? 10,560 strokes to make a mile?
Oh yeah and, WTF is a Yaris? Is that like walrus spooge?
At least my Ruckus sounds like something that would be a pain in the ass. OF's yelling at me and calling me a wippur snapper.

I'm sure the Anderson crowd would attest I might not fit in a priuis, not that I'd drive one anyway. The last time I drove something that small it was powered by briggs and stratton :baby:



And the latest weather forecast for Charlotte looks pretty good with rain late Friday night (latest hourly forecast I see is 54f at 1am Saturday).

Not sure if I'll go now, my mother went into the hospital again. It seems a glucose level of 578 is not a good thing, what are the odds?

I will post by tomorrow evening if I will make it or not. If so, I'll be on 147.420 and/or maybe 440 if I have a simplex freq programmed in there (need to double check, and I know you astro boys are 440 sexy)....

Hmmmmm, still trying to picture Mong, W2WTF, KG4CGC and I in something like a Prius.

It would be funny, CGC would suffocate and if Mong, WTF and I ate a po full of pintos with onions and a pone of cornbread before we tried it, CGC would never survive.......

It's just a daydream anyway, even if we could get in:
a) the vehicle couldn't move
b) we could never get back out without the jaws of life
c) even if it could move, something tells me 40mpg would be an impossibility.

Gee, only 578? My g/f had a cow orker that went to the hospital with vision problems, and when they finally saw him 6 hours later, his BG was DOWN TO around 525. You do the math on that one.

(GAAH! I'm starting to sound like an OF talking about medical problems... :baby: )
