The 30th annual conference of the Central States VHF Society will be held July 26-28, 1996 at the Thunderbird Hotel & Convention Center in Bloomington, Minnesota. The Thunderbird is adjacent to the Mpls-St.Paul International Airport and the Mall of America.
The program will feature technical presentations,
Antenna gain measurement
Noise figure testin
A flea market
The premier opportunity to meet VHFers from across North America and beyond.
We will also have a full family program,with both organized group activities and suggestions for young families who may prefer to do things on their own. We are within walking distance of the fabulous Mall of America, with entertainment and shopping to interest almost anyone. (Check it out at: http://www.bitstream.net/tce/mallofam/mallofam.html ) In response to my survey at Colorado Springs, we will have the use of a large hospitality suite for the family program and we will offer babysitting services. The hotel also has beautiful indoor and outdoor pools, and a unique Native American theme.
The Thunderbird is ready to take reservations at 800-328-1931. We have a large block of rooms at a special rate of $79+tax until July 1st. Be aware that, because of its proximity to the Mall, the hotel will be fully booked in advance for these nights. Please make your reservations early!
For those interested in extending their vacation in Minnesota, the Office
of Tourism has a very nice Web page at:
Resort bookings should also be made during the winter to avoid disappointment.
More information will be posted as it becomes available. The Northern Lights Radio Society and I look forward to greeting many of you next summer!
