The Hamfest Board has met with the Von Braun Center to learn about the current rules & regulations for mass-gatherings. In short, the insurmountable obstacles that prevented us from hosting a Hamfest last year have relaxed to the point where we can host a safe and successful event.
Additionally, our survey of commercial and flea-market vendors on their plans to attend returned very encouraging sentiments.
Adjustments to the floor plan are being made to keep everyone safe, in particular 12’ aisle spacing. Additional space will be utilized this year to accommodate the commercial & flea-market vendors and visitors. Once that floor plan is defined in a few weeks we’ll open the web portal up for vendor registration.
We highly recommend visitors to purchase tickets on-line this year. Will-Call windows will be set up to streamline the Saturday morning crush. The ticket web portal will open in a few weeks.
The Hamfest Board is excited at the prospect of hosting a live gathering in a safe way for everyone attending and we look forward to seeing many of our friends again.
Thanks & 73,
Huntsville Hamfest Chairman
