The 2020 Crossroads Hamfest has been canceled

As a result of increasing concern about the Covid-19 virus, the SMARS board and hamfest committee have decided to cancel the 2020 Crossroads Hamfest. We regret any inconvience that this may cause. Persons that have already paid for tables or tickets should expect communications about a refund within the comming weeks.

We expect the Crossroads Hamfest to return in 2021. Watch this space for details.
