Hamvention 2020 Canceled

The Hamvention Executive Committee has been monitoring the COVID19 pandemic.
We have worked very closely with our local and state health Departments. It is with a very heavy heart
the Hamvention Executive Committee has decided to cancel Hamvention for this year.
This decision is extremely difficult for us but with around two months until the Great Gathering we felt this action necessary.
More specific details regarding the closure will soon be posted on our website Hamvention
Thank you for your understanding in this time of International Crisis.

Green Country Hamfest Canceled 16 Mar 2020.CLAREMORE, OKLAHOMA

The Green Country Hamfest Committee had been monitoring the rapidly changing information and recommendations from Oklahoma State Health Department (OSHD) as well as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our first concern is the health and wellbeing of all hamfest attendees, our vendors/partners and the Amateur Radio community in general.

We take great pride in the Green Country Hamfest being Oklahoma's largest and most attended hamfest, so we say, it is with much disappointment that we must announce the following: The 2020 Green Country Hamfest has been canceled.

We truly appreciate your patronage of the Green Country Hamfest and look forward to seeing everyone April 2021.

Refunds: If you had registered and paid on-line via the website for attendance, flea market table(s) or are a vendor. GCHF will refund your purchase via the website. This refund will be done over the next few days. If your payment was made by check, GCHF will be mailing a check to the address you provided.

Prizes will be held over to the 2021 Green Country Hamfest

If you have further questions about your refund please email: treasure@greencountryhamfest.org

Thank you for your support, understanding.
