Dayton Hamvention Bus Trip
January 21, 2017
2878 Ticknor Ct
Ann Arbor, MI 48104-6921
Mr. Steve Schmitz, W0SJS
Secretary OMIK Amateur Radio Association, Inc.

Dear Secretary Schmitz,
Once again, it is that time of year when lots of hams around the world start thinking of the Dayton Hamvention. After all, with 25,000 attendees from all amateur radio interest areas, what’s not to like!

Our club is offering a one-day trip to Hamvention. It is open to all those in the south-eastern Michigan region. Here is a convenient way to go for those who cannot afford the time or expense of the entire convention. This is an invitation to those in the Detroit, Jackson, Flint, Lansing and other areas. We have had riders as far west as Kalamazoo!

As in years past, The Arrow Communication Association is sponsoring a bus trip from Ann Arbor to Greene County Fairgrounds and Expo Center and back. The date is Saturday, May 20. We leave the park-and-ride at 4:00 am and get to the show at 8:00 am. We leave the Fairgrounds at 5:30 pm and arrive back to our large park-and-ride site by 8:30 pm. A continental breakfast is included on board. Even if you come from out of town, you still relieve yourself of almost 8 hours of drive time! What more could you ask for? 
There is more. If you want to sell your stuff in the flea market, we have reserved a space there just for you! Every year, Arrow reserves a swap spot just for the bus trip crowd. You save $70.00. All we ask is that you keep your items to a reasonable limit and that you volunteer at least one hour of your time at the swap tables. 
There is still more! As in the past several years, we are giving away DOOR PRIZES! In 2016, we had donations from a number Ham Radio Dealers around the U.S!

The cost is $55.00 for the round trip. (This increases to $65.00 on or after April 1.)  Please mail all applications to ARROW Communication Association, 2545 S. Lima Center Rd., Chelsea, MI 48118. Please note that this does not include the Hamvention ticket. That one you’ll have to do yourself! You may also use the link below to purchase a seat using PayPal. (Click the link, then scroll to the bottom of the page for the form and PayPal link button)
We are trying to generate as much publicity as possible, which is why we are writing you. If you can, please share this information as widely as you are able. If you have a web page, please consider adding a paragraph about the trip and a link to  Talk it up on the air! If you check into a state wide or regional or other net, please mention it there, also. Feel free to include us in your publications.
We at Arrow deeply appreciate your help in this matter and we thank you.
John Wasciuk,
