Ham Happenings 2020 Canceled

The Nanaimo Amateur Radio Association wants to inform other clubs and interested amateurs that the Ham Happenings swap meet, that had been set for this September, will not go ahead.

No surprise, but the complexity of holding this kind of event while adhering to public health orders, along with the uncertainty of the ongoing pandemic, led to organizational challenges that could not be overcome.

But please note that Ham Happenings will, as long as conditions allow, be held in Nanaimo next year. The date will be Sept. 11, 2021, and our booking for the same venue in Cedar has been transferred to that date.

We hope this helps in planning and keeping you and club members up to date.

73 to all from the NARA Executive
