Spring Swapfest Update

The 2020 Ozaukee Radio Club Spring Swapfest is still on for May 2.
We are continuing to monitor the Covid-19 situation and will look
at canceling or rescheduling as the date grows nearer. Things have
been changing rapidly and developments may force a reassessment
of the situation at any time.

The Spring Swapfest is our major fundraiser and we hope that it will
be held, as unlikely as that may seem today. If you have purchased
a ticket or table and would like a refund, please contact
Tom Trethewey KC9ONY.
