Hello Ham Radio Operators,
One of our neighboring clubs the Uniontown ARC has cancelled their annual Grabfest event for Aug, 2020. The Uniontown club is one of the area clubs that have a club house which mean they have a lot more expenses than most clubs. Without the funds from Grabfest that is going to hurt their pocketbook. The club had already put out funds to purchase the hamfest prizes which you can see below so what they are doing for a fund raising is having a raffle to win some of these prizes. Read the news release below and contact George to buys some tickets.
From the W3PIE website: https://www.w3pie.org
To help reduce or eliminate this deficit, the membership has decided to solicit our members for donations of any amount to help defer the loss of income from cancelling the hamfest.
We have several hamfest prizes that were already purchased: Quantity 1 – Yaesu FTM-3200DR 65W VHF Fusion Mobile, Quantity 2 – Yaesu FTM-3207DR 55W UHF Fusion Mobiles, and a few other assorted items. We would like to offer an incentive to our members to donate by conducting a drawing for each of the remaining prizes to be held at the conclusion of the August 5, 2020 UARC General Business Meeting. For each dollar donated, you will receive one chance in the drawing for the available prizes. A $100 donation would receive 100 chances. A $20 donation would receive 20 chances.
Our Gabfest has long enjoyed the financial support of our members – through the purchase of prize tickets and donations toward budgetary expenses. If you would like to assist UARC in offsetting our loss for 2020 and our Gabfest cancellation, please send your donation to UARC, c/o George Syner, Treasurer, 433 Old Pittsburgh Rd, Uniontown, PA 15401.
