Ok 12:00 time for the closing of HamCon Everyone back to the abc room
all throughout  Friday, Saturday and Sunday they had prize drawings every hour for something the Big prizes were for Sunday 12:00. They told us to go to the prize office and they had a sheet on the wall and had the names of the people that won on them well When I looked on Sunday they stopped writing the names down like 5:00 was the last one. When we got to the closing they drew the rest of the prizes. This lasted till about 1:15. Man I didn't win one prize at all. Oh well
