WHEN: Saturday, April 7, 2018 @ 10:00 AM
WHERE: Clague Park Cabin – Where the meetings have been held for many years.
Clague Park is about ¾ mile south of I-90 and about 3 miles north of I-480, in Westlake, OH 44145 – at the corner of Clague Rd. and Hilliard Rd. Westlake is about 10 miles west of downtown Cleveland. If navigating by GPS, the park entrance is across from the residence at 1581 Clague Road, Westlake, OH 44145 (just a few feet north)
If you are arriving from the south, using I-480, and depending on your route, you may pass a small park on the west side of Clague Road that is also called Clague Park, but located in North Olmsted, OH. It is about 1 ½ miles north of I-480, and is NOT the correct park. The sign is small, and this park is not visible from the road -- Keep going north about a mile.
The cabin is in a city park with a 2,500 sq. ft open area, including a kitchen and sufficient tables for swap or sale items. Parking is available immediately adjacent to the cabin. The place is large enough to accommodate 100 people with Plenty of parking.
The rules of the city state that the keys cannot be picked up until 9:30 AM, so the building will not be open until about 9:45. However, there will be a few of us in the parking lot and ready to open the doors for an on time start. There will be two coffee urns that should be up and hot by 10:20, and the best gourmet donuts from Giant Eagle. (Note; There will only be coffee & donuts at this meeting unless there is a cry for more exotic goodies. In the past there has been a lot of the little sandwiches and cookies left over --- so for the few folks that liked the sandwiches this is just a heads-up. We just hate to throw out what we can't give away at the end of the meeting.)
By now, everybody is aware these gatherings are VERY informal, with lots of good talk and another chance to meet face to face with the guys we talk with on the AM windows. Of course, there is no charge for this activity; however, there will be a “Donation Can” for anybody who is willing to donate a few bucks to help defray the cost of cabin rent, coffee, donuts, printing and postage (for those with no e-mail address).
If you know anyone interested in vintage radio – Amateur or SWL – please pass the word along.
However as stated before, we would like to make it PERFECTLY CLEAR, dealers and profiteers are NOT welcome and will be turned away This is not a typical “Pay to Enter” Ham Fest, it is a gathering of Hams & SWL’s who enjoy and use vintage radios. People who come with the intent ONLY to sit behind tables and sell items are not welcome.
