The FINE PRINT: The newly installed DX HOG can negate the consequences of the last requirement, i.e. having to buy the other DX hogs drinks for non-display of the HOG in the Shack in only one way: recipient must wear the honorable DX HOG HAT for the duration of the Hamfest while in and or around the Hamfest premises.
