Time to start thinking about the 2014 SMRC Hamfest

As the weather starts to warm a little, its time to start working toward our annual hamfest/tailgate. It will be in the traditional location at Cedars of Lebanon State Park on the 23rd of August. Check the website for park general information and reservations. You can also get general vendor information along with the vendor grid for space rental options along with vendor applications.

Make your plans to be there! More information will be coming soon.
