Charlotte NC 2009 moving !!!

Not on the web yet, but for those of you who do venture out for the hamfest in Charlotte every spring I bring unofficial news that it will be held in Concord NC (Cabarrus County). Concord is just north of Charlotte on I-85 so it'll be closer for those if you towards the capital.

I assume the reason the hamfest is moving is that the Charlotte Merchandise Mart had been sold to a church and I guess they will finally be tearing it down. One good change will be free parking, which has always been out of control of the hamfest and had caused some OFs to complain about the $5 while they go and spend $1500 on another HF radio that will rarely be used.
I'll take a warm midget fart over a cold beer any day
