Hello Friends and Club Officials
Its July 2017 with 67 days until the W4DXCC DX and Contest Convention it time to attend. I ask your help in spreading the word this year by forwarding this and subsequent announcements about the W4DXCC convention, thank you in advance.

The 2017 W4DXCC convention is about ready. We will have Ham Radio Bootcamp Friday for new and experienced hams alike to learn and relearn new things in ham radio. This is a must for the new ham and a refresher for the experienced ones. We will have a session on operating Digital modes like JT65 and the New FT8 mode, come learn how.

Saturday is the main day where presenters from all over come and present DX and Contesting topics. Its a great time to see who is leading the pack in these areas. We have a full complement of equipment manufacturers including, Icom, Yaesu, Elecraft, Flex Radio Systems, Vibroplex companies and Expert Amps to name a few and all located just outside of the presentation room where you can have a one on one conversation and play with all the that new gear.

Both the Main and BootCamp programs are now updated on the website so you can see who be presenting. We are working some additional presentations and when they are firmed up the website will be updated.

CWops will be there with the Morse code copying contest located in the ham shack.

Convention registration is now open. If you plan on attending be sure to make your hotel reservations ASAP, last year the hotel filled up fast. Go now and make your Convention, Banquet and Hotel reservations below.

The Hotel is about 80% full now so its a great time to book your room
