Thank you to those who joined us on Sunday June 17, 2018 for the BARC Father's Day Hamfest and Marketplace in Upperco, MD. This exciting event featured a giant flea market for traditional tailgating and food. Attendance and tailgating activity was up from previous years.

We continued the same value-based is first-come/first-serve (no advance sales of admission tickets or space). Outdoor tailgating space continued at $5 each with admission of $5 each (donation). Hours: 8 am.-2 pm. Location: the Arcadia Volunteer Fire Company grounds, 16020 Carnival Avenue, Upperco, MD 21155. ARRL DXCC/WAS qsl card checking is available in the morning. Amateur radio license exam testing is no longer offered.

New for 2018... Tasty Treats, was manned by Mr. Nick, who provided BBQ sandwiches, baklava, hot dogs, ice cream, coffee, and other goodies at affordable prices.

Remember, we are the last area hamfest each year before ARRL Field Day for those last minute shoppers. Note, sales of ammunition, fire arms, and pornographic material/media are prohibited.

A big thank you to our valuable volunteers, who helped with the hamfest, and Dave AB3TE our hamfest chairman.

The weather was again great for our fourth hamfest at the new location. Please join us again in 2019!!!.
