We had just learned and verified that the Maysville Hamfest 2021 had been canceled this year due to COVID Variant-D concerns however Danny Garris, WD4CQ reached out to the Maysville Hamfest Organizers and asked Bryon Highland, K4BMH if the local ham community could still gather and have a Hamfest and tailgating. Bryon agreed and gave permission to Danny Garris, WD4CQ to have the Hamfest as scheduled. Danny then got permission from the City of Maysville and the Owner of the Rotary Park Community Center. Danny Garris, WD4CQ agreed to pay the $200 cash rental fee for the Rotary Park Community Center out of his pocket so that the Maysville Hamfest can continue as Scheduled. Dave Warwick, K4DJW also stepped in and agreed to pay half the rental fee of $100 to lighten the burden on Danny. Now the Maysville Hamfest WILL CONTINUE AS SCHEDULED with the blessings of the Maysville Hamfest Association and the City Of Maysville as well as the Owner of the Rotary Park Community Center. Both Danny Garris, WD4CQ, and Dave Warwick, K4DJW are happy to have this opportunity to help assist the Maysville Hamfest Association to continue the Maysville Hamfest for 2021.
Just as before, the Rotary Park Community Building will be open as well as the kitchen area and all bathrooms. We have plenty of Vendor space inside for any vendors that wish to set up. We would like for all those that can, to bring something to share for the Open Pot Luck Luncheon! Come out and fellowship with other Ham Radio Clubs throughout Eastern NC with great food and fellowship! When you come to the Park just bring your Potluck item inside and place it on the table. Then @ 12:00 PM we will have a blessing over the food and enjoy our Potluck luncheon! We will give out door prizes during the event and Everything will be Free! All that we ask is a small donation to cover the $200 rental fees taken on by both Danny & Dave. Any proceeds after will go to cover the extra costs of food and supplies to help make this a great Hamfest and to keep it Free and support the Maysville Hamfest Association and the local Ham Community.
Many of the area Ham Radio Clubs have always discussed having a Picnic Day where all the Clubs can come together and fellowship over good food, Ham Radio, and some tailgating! Well, this will be SUCH AN EVENT! Both a Hamfest AND a Community Potluck Luncheon @ 12:00 PM. Bring a dish, paper plates, bottles of water or soda, Iced Tea, KFC Chicken, Tacos, Hot dogs or Bring a grill and grill out. If each person would bring a little something to share it will be an awesome potluck picnic lunch.
