BMHA forum at Hamvention 2002 !
The First Decade of BMHA,
Look Back but Looking Forward !
The eleventh annual
Hamvention Bike Ride!
It’s actually more than 10 years since the first BMHA Hamvention forum and this is the 11th year of the BMHA Hamvention bike ride. This year we are taking a look at the first decade of the BMHA bike ride with Jim Gumbert, NC8Y, the organizer of each and every ride. Jim will have some interesting stories and some of the highlights of this very popular and picturesque ride sponsored by BMHA. Russ Dwarshuis, KB8U, a veteran forum speaker, will show and talk about some of his unique projects he has worked on during the last decade and some very interesting things he has done. Russ is one of the pioneers of BMHA and has supported, advertised and assisted with many BMHA activities. Russ is also a long time BMHA Board Member.
We plan to have copies of the 1st BMHA Newsletter, Volume 1, Number 1 at the forum. A complimentary copy of this ancient Newsletter will be given to all who attend. We will also have many other BMHA newsletters available for a small donation if you would like a copy.
We have some new ideas to present this year. Please attend and bring your ideas and suggestions with you.
Bring your special project to talk about, demonstrate or promote. We will try to give you time before or during the forum to show to the group.
