FDIM Registration 2020

QRP-ARCI’s FDIM 2020 is in the works. Register NOW

FDIMFour Days In May

Get it on your calendar now! Thursday-Sunday, May 14-17, 2020.

If you haven’t attended before, this is a great year to make it your first.  QRP-ARCI is sensitive to the first-time attendee and will try hard to make your first FDIM as fun and interesting as possible.  We also make an effort to provide spouse activities.

Registration and getting acquainted begins on Wednesday evening.  Seminars are most of the day Thursday, with “meet the speakers” and an open room for some casual show and tell and plenty of time to swap tales that evening.  Most of Friday daytime is open to attend the Hamvention and visit the QRP-ARCI Toy Store.  Friday evening activities usually include “show and tell”, vendor displays and maybe a judged home brew contest.  Most of Saturday is again open for the Hamvention, and we have a great social event, banquet, awards presentation and door prizes that evening.  Sunday is the Hamvention, and check-out. 

Most of the speakers for the seminar have been contacted and confirmed.  We’ll have a “meet the speakers” social gathering after the seminar, where you’ll have an opportunity to meet, question and discuss QRP with the speakers.

Don’t miss out on the show and tell.  You can to bring out your QRP related projects and put them on display.  Your contemporaries will have a chance to roam through the displays and see the excellent craftsmanship used in these special exhibits.

It shouldn’t surprise you to find a contest or two during the weekend.  We’ve had QLF, split paddle, CW and other fun activities in the past.

We’re lining up vendors for the vendor showcase.  One evening, there will be several vendors with QRP related products displaying their wares. Many will offer special FDIM discounts.

In the past, the hotel has been accommodating with discount meal tickets.  You’ll find fast food restaurants across the street from the hotel.

This is preliminary information.  A complete schedule and list of activities will be posted on the web site as we move through the process.

Dress is casual for all events.
