    I see no mention of it on their website... not in the 'news', not on the calendar, etc...

    Why would they not put the event on their website? (which appears to have no news newer than January 2017) [edit] oops, sorry, there was info on their 'cookout' in August.

    Even the blurb on the ARRL site doesn't mention they're closing up at "noon-ish"

    Hello,
    Is the Hamfest a go? The Club website has no mention of it, mentions a cookout from August.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Looks like the website guru is not up to date for 2017, the Calendar for Last year; {2016 shows the Hamfest 7am till 12 noon.}

    So that is where I got the Noonish closing,
    as sometimes if a Hamfest is slow they may close a little early. ;)

    Man, I was hoping to sleep in until at least noon. Maybe next year...

    LOL Almost no hamfest goes very much past Noon.

    I suggest arriving before 10am.

    I kid, I kid. I've been up in the air about attending but after this week, it looks like it's not going to happen. Sleeping in wins over ham radio this weekend!
