No Dayton this year:
At nearly the last minute I aborted my Dayton 2018 trip.
Most of the ham friends I’d wanted to catch up with had to work or were traveling, cousins who I look forward to spending time couldn’t be there, unexpectedly we were to have family coming home, work needed my attention, a non-ham trade meeting planned to coordinate with Dayton had to be scrubbed for lack of a quorum, a couple life opportunities had opened up needing exploring, and the XYL would not be along to share the drive as someone needed to be home to meet incoming family….add it all up and it looked like I should stay home
So no Dayton 2018 for me My Flex Banquet ticket was reallocated to W9DDD, who knows on the DX Banquet as my email went unanswered, and the Society of Midwest Contesters (SMC) ticket for the Contest Dinner went to someone.
Maybe next year!
