Summerfest 2014 In Austin Aug. 1-2

Amateur radio enthusiasts from all over Texas (and beyond) will gather this weekend in Austin for the 31st annual Austin Summerfest at the Crowne Plaza. Amateur (aka "ham") radio is both a hobby and a service. Ham operators enjoy contacting other hams across town or on the other side of the globe, using everything from vintage radio equipment to the latest digital modes of communication! Amateur radio has also been proven time and time again to be a reliable means of emergency communications, "when all else fails."

BBB: Beware of Not-So-Fun ‘Fun’ Runs

 

The Better Business Bureau has been hearing lots of complaints from around the country about various fun runs that have been cancelled with short notice, often with no refunds. Last week, BBB of Greater Cleveland reported on a 5K Foam Fest that was cancelled with just four days’ notice. An email to paid participants said “Unfortunately, we’re not able to provide you with a refund.” A similar event scheduled for southern California was also cancelled with the same “no refund” email. The race website says they have ceased operations as of July 17. Another race company has offered Foam Fest participants a discount code for future theme races.

BBB: How to Avoid Buying Counterfeit Event Tickets

You're excited. You've found what you think is a "great" deal on a pair of tickets to that big concert, championship tournament, or other big event. You buy the tickets, drive to Austin, San Antonio, Houston, or maybe even make the trek all the way up to Dallas. When you get to the doors of the venue, they scan your tickets. Then, like a cold slap to the face, the ticket-taker informs you that your "bargain" (or not, if you paid scalped rates) tickets are no good. In fact, they're counterfeit. Phonies. Fakes. You may ask yourself, "How could I have fallen for it, and what do I do now?" Here's some advice from the Better Business Bureau.
