In the early sixties, Director Robert York Chapman W1QV used to chair the New London Hamfest sponsored by the Tri City ARC. It was an event we all looked forward to complete with banquet and speakers. It was held at a hotel in New London--I think The Crocker House.
Hams came from the tri-state area and really enjoyed the fest which was held on a Saturday. Bob made sure there were plenty of prizes, too! I don\'t remember much about the flea market but there must have been one; perhaps someone will tell me about that.
