Help Wanted! For HamFest September 9

Help Needed For SCARA HamFest Sept 9!

At the April meeting, 12 generous attendees signed up to help with our Hamfest on September 9. I really appreciate those offers to help, but to make the Hamfest a success, we’ll need some more folks – both before and during the event. It will take all of us!

Let’s divide the work into functional teams, so all bases get covered and nobody gets overloaded.

I am contacting those first 12 volunteers separately to ask them to pick a Team/Function that they are willing to help with.

And I’m asking everyone else receiving this message to respond and let us know how you’d like to help. Feel free to sign on to both a pre-hamfest team AND a team during the fest. It’s going to take all of us to make this 33rd annual hamfest great.

I have sent emails to 106 potential vendors asking them to either attend or to donate to our raffles. We need to follow up by telephone with the most likely prospects. Many will again say yes.

Questions? Comments? Email me at petermil@verizon.net
