When All Else Fails There is Amateur Radio

Notice Of Cancellation !!!!!!!

 

Over the past several weeks we have been working with and discussing the 2020 Hamfest ,with our local agencies, and viewing their thoughts and information, advising us we could go on with the Hamfest,here in Sevierville TN.

All dealers stated they would be here, so many folks have emailed and called thanking us for taking the Hamfest forward, even in the COVID-19 virus, unfortunate that we have to cancel the Hamfest, and follow the directive of our local agencies and the directive of the CDC limiting the amount of people that could be at a event. Our staff was prepared with the proper cleaning and safety item, and to insure that every one would be safe as possible.. we made every effort to advise that if you where sick ,not to attend the event, and that if you felt uncomfortable attending, please stay home, it was the choice of the individuals !!

With that said we hope you will join us on March 27th 2021 at the Sevier County Fairgrounds for that years Hamfest !!

Dealer have stated that they will also be there, so we hope that there will not be any issues, like the COVID-19 still around, its going to be a tough year at least until September or October with this virus , and many Hamfest of course will have to cancel, our dealers need your support as well, I will be talking with all in the next two days to see if we can set up something special..

Thanks again to all our members, Hamfest Committee For the Great Work and Accomplishments You Have Done..

Thank You for your understanding, stay well, and live your life with out fear !! I know we will here ..
