2016 Winterfest

Despite Mother Nature using a record snowfall to demand its postponement by one week, the HRAC Winterfest was very well attended today.  Thanks to all who came out to buy, sell, swap, socialize and to support the club!

The 2017 Winterfest will be held at a new location.  We will provide details once they become available. We look forward to seeing you next year!
