Since our last update in late May, the number of new daily cases of COVID-19 in Wisconsin has doubled. Although this is not the outcome we had hoped for, the increased prevalence of the coronavirus has impacted our ability to safely participate in our radio hobby.
We regret to inform you that after much debate, the WARCI Board has decided to cancel the remainder of the 2020 WARCI swap meet dates. The health and safety of our members is our first priority. Due to the age demographic of our membership, a swap meet poses an unacceptable level of risk to our buyers, sellers, volunteers, and their families.
The WARCI Board will continue to monitor the situation throughout the year and reassess the feasibility of the January and March 2021 swap meets at a later date.
On behalf of the WARCI board, I would like to wish you and your family the best of health and we thank you for your patience as we navigate the ongoing COVID-19 situation. We look forward to seeing you (in-person!) in 2021.
