Hamfest 2017

The Irving Amateur Radio Club is proud to announce our 15th Annual Hamfest will be held on March 4th, 2017 at Betcha Bingo in Irving, Texas. As always, the doors will open at 8:00 AM, with ticket sales beginning at 7:00 AM in the Betcha Bingo 2 hall right next door (you can arrive early, buy your ticket, and wait indoors until the Hamfest doors open at 8:00 AM).

This year admission will be $5 if tickets are purchased in advance or at the door, and tables will be $10 each, with no discount for advance purchase. Additional raffle tickets will be available at a cost of $5 for 3 (three) additional raffle tickets. Tables traditionally sell out at the event, so vendors are strongly encouraged to pre-purchase their tables. Table rentals DO NOT include admission tickets, everyone that plans to be in the bingo hall during the hours of the Hamfest will be required to have a paid admission.

Questions can be sent to the Hamfest Chairman at hamfest@irvingarc.org.
