Dear hamfest attendees,

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce that our plans for the April Hanging Judge Hamfest must change as a result of the threat of COVID-19 otherwise known as Coronavirus. Our plans for our Hamfest in April are postponed. The FSAARC Board of Directors feel that this is in the best interest of the health and welfare of our attendees. I have been in touch with the Sebastian County (AR) Emergency Manager and he is in agreement.

The Hamfest Committee has put a great deal of work into our Hamfest this year and Jim Darrough, KI7AY and Jim Weaver, KM5YV have done a great job! I feel certain that we will be able to find a date later this year to reschedule our event after the threat has passed. In the meantime our primary interest in in the well being of our members and all that attend.

Rory Bowers, K5CKS
President - FSAARC
