WIA Visits BARCFest 2008
On Saturday 10th May the Brisbane Amateur Radio Club held its annual and popular BARCFest at the Mt Gravatt Showgrounds. Don VK4BY, Chairman of the Queensland Advisory Committee, flew down from Rockhampton to assist Ewan VK4ERM and Ken VK4KF man the WIA table at the BARCFest. There was a steady stream of people stopping at the table to ask questions, have a yarn about subjects Amateur Radio and to purchase merchandise including the popular new 2008 Callbook. Several people joined the WIA and were welcomed by those present as new members and for their support to Amateur Radio.

Ray VK4HDX travelled from the north with trays of QSL cards for people to collect and was given a prominent position near the entrance.
The venue comprised two levels in the building and included an enthusiastically staffed 'Café de BARC' which was well patronised during the
event where a delicious range of goodies was available to complement the drinks available.
Thanks to BARC and their organising committee for providing another well attended and enjoyable BARCFest and hosting the WIA attendance.
