2018 – Sumter County Fair and our participation.
We participated in the 2017 Fair and we were invited back to participate in the 2018 Fair. We believe that 2018 is a great time and opportunity to share our hobby of amateur radio, due in part to the 2017 Storm Season along with other disasters Nation and World wide.
We of course have to have the volunteer base to make this work, so if you are an amateur and especially if you are member of our association, please consider helping out some. Volunteer for a shift or two at the Fair.
As amateur radio operators we all should be thankful anytime we have a platform in which to share our hobby and service to others. The Fair is just hat platform and yes, it is hard, most people could care less about amateur radio “they have their cell phones”. But if we win over even just a few we will have served the hobby well.
The Fair runs from Friday, March 2, 2018 – Saturday, March 10, 2018. We will have a workday on Thursday, March 1, 2018 to get our area set up, antennas, coax, etc. run.
So if you are interested in helping out please email us at K4HOGFL@gmail.com and we can plug you in.
