Ann Arbor (Arrow) Bus Information to Dayton Hamfes

March 23, 2018


2878 Ticknor Ct

Ann Arbor, MI 48104-6921


Dear Michigan Amateur Radio Club Members and Friends,


Once again, it is that time of year when lots of hams around the world start thinking of the Dayton Hamvention. After all, with 29,296 attendees from all amateur radio interest areas, whatís not to like!


Donít you wish you were going? Youíre not looking forward to that long drive? Donít drive! Take the Arrow bus! Itís inexpensive and easy. Even if you come from out of the Metro Detroit Area, you still relieve yourself of more than 8 hours of drive time!


As in years past, The Arrow Communication Association is sponsoring a bus trip from Ann Arbor, Michigan to the Greene County Fairgrounds and Expo Center in Xenia, Ohio and back. The date is Saturday, May 19. We leave the park-and-ride at 5:00 am and get to the show at 9:00 am. We leave Xenia at 5:30 pm and arrive back to our large park-and-ride site by 9:30 pm. A continental breakfast is included on board. What more could you ask for?


Please Note: The departure time is 5:00 am this year because Xenia is one-half hour farther and the doors open up this year at 9:00 AM.

Check out our video!


There is more. If you want to sell your stuff in the flea market, we have reserved a space there just for you! Every year, Arrow reserves a swap spot just for the bus trip crowd. You save $70.00. All we ask is that you keep your items to a reasonable limit and that you volunteer at least one hour of your time at the swap tables.


There is still more! As in the past several years, we are giving away DOOR PRIZES! In 2018, we already have donations from over a dozen Ham Radio Entrepreneurs around the U.S!


Also, again this year, Rex Harper, W1REX, of will be giving out a free kit to each and every bus rider. We had a great time putting together a no-solder gadget last time and will surly enjoy doing so again! Just look at our video!




For those of you who cannot make it to Four Days in May, you will note that we have several nice QRP prizes on our list! There is more to comeÖ


The cost is $55.00 for the round trip. (This increases to $65.00 on or after April 1.)  Please mail all applications to ARROW Communication Association, 2545 S. Lima Center Rd., Chelsea, MI 48118. Please note that this does not include the Hamvention ticket. That one youíll have to do yourself! You may also use the link below to purchase a seat using PayPal.


We are trying to generate as much publicity as possible, which is why we are writing you. If you can, please share this information as widely as you are able. If you have a web page, please consider adding a paragraph about the trip and a link to


We at Arrow deeply appreciate your help in this matter and we thank you.
