OUR Hamfest is CANCELLED for 2020.
Due to the recent pandemic of Covid Virus the Radio Amateurs of Greater Syracuse is reluctant to say we are cancelling the RAGS Hamfest on July 11, 2020. We are sure you will understand as we are not even sure if the venue will be open and available.
The ARRL web site will also reflect this cancellation.
We will be looking forward to seeing you all at Hamfest 2021 thinking positive that conditions will be better by then.
On a brighter side we will however still be having several drawings as usual using the pre-sale tickets purchased by many for our prizes.
