2021 Rochester Hamfest March Update
At the February 4 RaRa Board of Directors meeting, at the recommendation of the Hamfest Committee, we made a decision to cancel our Rochester Hamfest that we were planning to hold on June 5, 2021 at the Hilton Exempts Fireman's Field.
All of us agreed that there was too much uncertainty surrounding the COVID situation as the date draws closer. We very much want to have the event, but the health safety of attendees and volunteers is our priority. In addition, we want to protect club resources from possible loss resulting from committing funds then having to cancel the event.
Moving forward, we will look for ways for RaRa to participate in any events that do happen. We have indicated our interest in holding the 2022 Rochester Hamfest at the Hilton Exempts Fireman's Field.
2021 Rochester Hamfest Team
RaRa will continue to monitor the COVID situation as the date draws closer. We very much want to have the event, but the health safety of attendees and volunteers is our priority. Assuming that we will be able to proceed, we will be implementing preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in accordance with Federal, State, and Local guidelines.
We have reserved the day with Hilton Exempt Club. The forms have been filed with the ARRL and we are listed on their hamfest page. It's time to start advertising and planning.
Thanks to Anand Choudri KC2KPG, we have an easy to follow procedure that includes all the steps to put on a great hamfest, and the hardest part – finding a venue – is out of the way.
Thankfully, we have committee members returning from last year, but we could use more help to spread the work. There are several steps to be taken between now and June 6th.
To be on the committee, you mostly need to be able to respond to e-mail, make a few phone calls, and attend about one committee meeting per month. (via Zoom for now) If you're interested in being on the committee, please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
