Hello Fellow Hams;

The Slidell EOC Hamfest sponsored by the Ozone Amateur Radio Club is ON for October 8 & 9, 2021. The Slidell Auditorium survived Ida and is ready for our fest. This year will be big because our venue has changed back to the Slidell Auditorium from John Slidell Park gym. We have major vendors and great main and hourly prizes (see attached flyer).

For those concerned about COVID; Louisiana and St. Tammany’s new cases are on the down slope. Our Governor has mandated Masks for all indoor activities so bring your mask. Unfortunately, we will not be able to supply masks to those who forget…please put an extra mask in your transportation vehicle today. For those that don’t believe in masks, we respect your beliefs/opinions, but please comply so we do not get shutdown or kicked out of our new venue. Thanks.



Dave Hartley - OARC President and 2021 Hamfest Chairman.
