Free children at HamFest
This reply to my remarks about the New National HamFest appeared in my comments but was not displayed due to it being marked as Spam. In all fairness the organisers of the event deserve to have their say a little more visible so I am reproducing it here. I have in the past attended the Lincoln event when I was in the area and it was a very good rally. Good luck to those involved.

First, thanks for pointing out to us that we had not mentioned that children under 16 are free – this has now been corrected.
The National Hamfest is an expansion of our very successful Lincoln Hamfest which has been running for many years. A number of years ago we moved our event to the Newark Showground.
Whilst we appreciate your comments about the situation of the venue it is less than five minutes from the A1 – one of the major north south roads in the country – and served by the A46 with its links to the motorway system.
If you require any more information about the National Hamfest please contact, Clive G1BSN – National Hamfest Event Coordinator (a member of the Lincoln Shortwave Club – not an RSGB employee) – his contact details are available at http://www.nationalhamfest.org.uk and he will be happy to help.
