    Thanks for the news, I see it was emailed out to the ARRL Members list today.

    Sharing on behalf of the Hamfest committee at Atlanta Radio Club and
    Kennehoochee Amateur Radio Club.

    The June 1, 2019 Atlanta Hamfest, schedule for Jim R. Miller Park in
    Marietta, has been cancelled.

    John Talipsky, N3ACK, the Hamfest chair said, “It’s every event
    organizer’s worst nightmare to have to cancel an event for things
    other than weather and this was not done lightly. Due to ongoing issues,
    that we have not been able to satisfactorily address at this time,
    related to our return to the newly renovated facility, it was decided in
    the best interests of attendees and vendors alike to cancel this
    year’s show.”

    The Hamfest was planning to return to Jim R Miller Park, it’s home
    since 2001, after a year away due to remodeling at the park. The team
    made the tough decision to cancel because they did not feel the goal of
    a fun, quality event was on track.

    The Atlanta Hamfest team is turning their efforts toward the 2020 event,
    planned for Saturday June 6, back at Jim R. Miller Park. Vendors who
    have prepaid will receive an email in the next few days to confirm their
    refund has been issues. We greatly apologize to our vendors,
    presenters, and attendees for any inconvenience this may cause.

    Watch for more information on the 2020 Atlanta
    Hamfest as planning continues.
