OVARC 2020 Hamfest - CANCELLED
After a unanimous vote, the OVARC Board of Directors has decided to cancel the November 14, 2020 Hamfest due to the pandemic.
It was important to reach this decision now, so that our members, attendees and vendors can do the proper planning.
There were many factors considered, the most important of which is the heath and safety of our vulnerable members and attendees. We have experienced a number of executive orders in The State of Arizona, and there may be more to come this fall. The current limitation on gatherings precludes having the Hamfest, but it is unclear as to when this might expire or simply change. The Town of Marana is, of course, obligated to comply with the Governor’s orders regarding gatherings. However, the Marana school district/ Middle School has not refused any requests to use their properties under the appropriate terms.
As you may have noticed, many Fall Hamfests have already been canceled. I’ll be working on getting our application approved for the 2021 OVARC Hamfest for November 13, 2021.
I am sure everyone, including the board, is disappointed to hear of this decision, but I believe it was the right choice.
Stay Well! 73, Steve – W1SR - OVARC President
