KARS Outdoor HamFest
***POSTPONED*** This will hopefully be rescheduled for August or September - This year's hamfest will be a change in venue and will be outdoors rather than in a building as in previous years. Consequently you might want to consider bringing a pop-up canopy if you'll be setting up a table to sell. More details on the KARS HamFest Flyer.
