A number of AARC members will be attending this barbecue/hamfest. And, yes, the barbecue really is famous. Skip the hamburger stand and find the line for the BBQ. The line may be long but it is long for a reason and moves fairly fast once they start serving (and yes, people line up early in case they run out). Another unusual feature is the tree shaded tailgate area. This is a smaller hamfest but a favourite among hams in the region.

The hamfest is on Route 7 business between 7 business and 7 bypass just east of the split if you are coming from winchester/I81. Lattitude/longitude: 39.164782, -78.001097
