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. (SEE DARA WEB PAGES)

Thank you for your understanding in this time of International Crisis.

Jack Gerbs

General Chairman HV2020

Regarding the stated club meeting tomorrow, we are changing the format to be a Net on the K8BXQ repeater (147.195). With concerns of large gatherings and meetings, the EMA has asked us to consider changing our format. We will NOT be meeting at the admin building this month, but will follow a Net format with check-ins. The time will be the same, 7:30pm. Please plan on attending as we put our hobby to use in a forum it was intended for!

There is a great deal of concern and hype over the Coronavirus in Ohio. It has prompted TMRA to act upon these decisions.

COLUMBUS — Ohio. Gov. Mike DeWine on Wednesday said he plans to issue an executive order barring public participation in sporting events and other large gatherings (Tuesdays news conference defines large gathering as 100 or more), and that a closure of K-12 schools could happen soon as the state continues to battle with a coronavirus outbreak. The governor’s allusion to even more drastic virus mitigation steps coming in the near future came as officials announced a 53-year old male from Stark County has tested positive for coronavirus, marking the fourth case in Ohio and the first case officials consider to be “community spread.” Community spread cases are cases where the afflicted individual did not become sick as a result of traveling.

TMRA at this time is cancelling the March 14 th Great Lakes Conference along with the March 15 th Hamfest in order to further protect our regular attendees and vendors. At the present time TMRA has had several conference presenters and vendors cancel out on our event. We at TMRA do not want to put on an event that you will not get your monies worth or not get the presenters that were promised. All those that pre-purchased tickets (for any portion of our events) will be fully refunded over the upcoming week. We look forward to your participation at future events!

The meeting was called to order at 7:30pm by Bryan Patterson (KB8ELG) with 15 members and guests in attendance, the pledge of allegiance was given by all.
