2. Hamvention “Fully Committed” to Hold 2016 Show at Hara Arena

Dayton Hamvention® General Chairman Jim Tiderman, N8IDS, is downplaying talk
that Hamvention might move from Hara Arena as early as next year.
Tiderman characterized the reports “all speculation and rumor.”

“We still keep an open mind to alternate plans, in case they become necessary.
All successful businesses need to do that, and Hamvention is no different in that respect.”
Last May, the show attracted some 25,000 visitors.
Dayton Hamvention 2016 will take place May 20, 21, and 22.

Tiderman told the Dayton Daily News that “something catastrophic” would have to happen
to cause Hamvention to move from Hara Arena.
