Socorro Hamfest Saturday, October 30 We will use Prescott's schedule for
setting up tables. Penny suggested the fellow who spoke about "Man vs.

mailed to every ham within 4 hours of Socorro, not all of northern NM. The City
covers all expenses of the flyers. The City logo should be on all the flyers.
NMT's printing and folding is better this year. The preliminary flyer needs to
be finalized - a list workshops and information about the dinner. Dave Johnson
