ARRL Convention Program Manager Gail Iannone, has notified Framingham Amateur Radio Association Director Beverly Lees, N1LOO that FARA’s spring flea market on April 3, 2011 has been designated an “ARRL Approved” hamfest. New England Division Director Tom Frenaye, K1KI made the approval.
The club is encouraged to prominently display the ARRL diamond in its emails, advertisements, and other program material. In return, the League makes available to approved hamfests at low- or no-cost brochures, hanging and standing banners, tabletop displays, table throws, and other giveaways (pens, magnets and stickers). A list of available items can be found at http://www.arrl.org/shop/Forms-and-Media-Warehouse/.
“We wish you the best for a successful event, wrote Iannone, who added, “Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with your hamfest plans.”[More information about the FARA flea market can be found at <http://fara.org/flea/>.]
