Prescott Hamfest for 2020 has been cancelled.
Prescott Hamfest has become a well respected hamfest in Arizona. Each year in our brief 4 year history we have made significant improvements. Its even been recognized by the SW region as a significant Hamfest.
Our huge venue location for this year was an opportunity to become a significant Western Region Hamfest. Unfortunately, this venue location became unusable. Therefore, the Prescott Hamfest committee decided If we can’t be significantly improved over last year then we would not do it this year, in favor of bigger plans for 2021.
On a positive note, we remain fortunate to have a committee of volunteers who remain committed to 2021. We have already engaged venue options for 2021 and feel as a committee, our event would be best served by taking the additional time needed to secure a first-class venue for a bigger and better Prescott Hamfest. We would like to thank all those who have assisted at Hamfest in the past and request you, “hang in there” with us for 2021. Our goal is to secure a cost effective yet desirable venue, something condusive to promoting amateur radio in our community in 2021.
On behalf of the Prescott Hamfest Committee, please look forward with us in participating and experiencing our event again in 2021. We will continue to update YARC members in the future, as we focus our efforts for 2021.
