BMHA 2015 Dayton Forum was a success
The 25th Annual BHMA forum at Dayton was another success. We had good attendance and several bicycle setup's on display.
On the day before the BMHA forum, the annual BMHA bicycle ride was planned at the usual location in Dayton. Unfortunately the good weather did not show up and the ride was canceled before it started. The weather was threatening so we headed back to the Hara Arena. Our choice was correct as it rained the rest of the day.
At the forum, we had some pictures from previous forums, the best of BMHA along with a number of highlights from previous BMHA rides and forums. We reviewed the past and future of BMHA. The highlight of the forum was a showing of one of our members, K0PE, video of his transporting of the American flag on RAGBRAI across Iowa honoring the Freedom Rock from Story County in Iowa.

Just a quick update on the BMHA forum at Dayton. We had about 50-60
attend which is a good turnout on Sunday morning. Both speakers,
Jim, W5AOX and Norm, N9ZKX did a great job and there was lotís of
interest in their bikes with APRS. Both had their bikes on display.
I presented a short update on BMHA past and future.
To me it looked like a smaller turnout this year and there were
more empty spaces in the outdoor flea market than prior years.
Inside exhibits were down also but all the major dealers and
manufactures were there. This was even my year to win one of the
hourly door prizes, about 5 ARRL publications.
