Re: Hamfest


I believe that if you choose to meet then that is your choice, yes it is less than 50 people, but due to the serious nature of the pandemic - I am making an official statement that the CMRA is not going to support the event.  We should take this event seriously, at this time we are fortunate to not have anyone we know impacted by this situation, I would like to keep it that way.  The purpose of considering this is to prevent the spread of disease and taking the responsible stance of supporting the recommendations of the CDC and not meeting if it is not necessary.

Probably less than 50 people.
Probably no out of towners from far away.
It is out doors
And it is spread out.   So if you have to sneeze you can cover and just turn in a safe direction.
And I want to take more pictures of everybody's ideas.

Due to the COVID-19 virus and the CDC recommendation of cancelling events with more than 50 present, we made the decision this morning to cancel the Boonville, MO hamfest scheduled for 3/21/2020.


Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at our hamfest next year.
