    Refund info from hamvention.org:

    1. Mail in a request for a refund.
    2. Mail in a request to exchange your ticket for a ticket to the 2021 event.
    3. Consider your purchase a donation.

    I'm going to opt for option 3, and hope you will as well. The amount won't break most of us, and DARA no doubt has some fixed costs associated with the event that have already been paid for/budgeted for.

    Until next year. . .

    Painful but appropriate decision.

    Better to make a painful decision than to risk a painful and deadly illness that many of us may or may not recover from fully ,given the age many of us are . I'd have better odds hitting a giant jackpot in a Vegas casino, if one was open that is. 73 to all.

    3. Consider your purchase a donation. Cancel is best for all concerned . I have planed my vacation around this time , but my wife and I have decided not to go anywhere. Maybe next year will be the best one you have ever gone to. My guess is venders and manufactures will miss this year and plan A bigger -Better participation for next year.
    Best of luck DAYTON

    Why not just reschedule it a month or so in the summer? Besides the weather is better. Dayton is risk every years because of the rain. Now is a good time to change its date.
