60th Anniversary Moved to GLH-2021
On Tuesday, July 21, Gov. Beshear announced 674 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the second-highest increase in the state so far.
Changes are happening almost daily and it is difficult to predict what the situation will be by September. As of now, Paroquet Springs Conference Centre - following state guidelines - requires social distancing with a minimum of 6 feet between people and limits the number of people in each room.
We want to gather together and have fun during our 60th anniversary celebration - not being concerned over the spread of a virus. Therefore, by unanimous decision of the Greater Louisville Hamfest Association, we have decided to cancel GLH-2020 and celebrate our 60th next year.
Virtual Program for GLH-2020
So, since we aren't having a physical hamfest maybe we can do something virtual. That was an idea from Buddy Sohl KC4WQ, who attended our July 21 GLHA Meeting.
Buddy suggested there were many hamfests that cancelled, but they are having forums that can be joined online. There could also be the possibility of having a virtual flea market using Facebook or some other method.
This is something we will be working on over the next couple months. It's a new idea, but it still gives everyone in Kentuckiana an opportunity to have some kind of special Amateur Radio event in place of this year's hamfest. Stay tuned. We will keep everyone informed as things develop.
