2nd Annual South Central Texas Meet, Greet And Swap Fest Report

The 2nd Annual South Central Texas Meet, Greet and Swap Fest, sponsored by the Big Texas Radio website,  was held today,  June 1, 2013,  from 8am-1pm, at the Cibolo City Park,  608 W FM-78, Cibolo, TX 78108. The park is also known as Niemietz Park.  Free Admission, Free Food, Free Door Prizes.

About 150 hams showed up for this free event.   We don’t know  how they do it, or how they fund it, but the Hams from Big Texas Radio website are the sponsors.

They don’t charge admission nor table fees. They do provide free sodas, water, and a full BBQ Catered Meal, plus lots of high dollar door prizes, including the Grand Prize this year, a brand new Kenwood TS-480SAT HF Radio, still in it’s original box.  Other door prizes include a Baofeng UV-3R Dual Band Handheld 2m and 70cm radio, Weller 40 watt soldering station wlc100, donations from GrumpyShop.net and other hams, and multiple $20 cash door prizes and a top cash prize of $103.  You had to be present to win any prizes, and the drawing was held around noon time.

Here are some of my photos that I took during the event…
