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!
