The Tri-County Amateur Radio Club – WC5C will hold its next meeting on 12 December 2020. Doors will open at 6:00pm. This will also be our annual Christmas Party. This meeting/party will be held at the Cornerstone Community Church – 2233 East Highway 199, Springtown, Texas 76082. The church is located slightly northwest of the east Highway 199 and Harms Drive intersection (see map, below).
Should you have trouble finding the Cornerstone Community Church, some of the club members will be monitoring 147.160 / PL 110.9 and cam talk you in.
The club will be providing turkey and ham for the dinner. The rest is potluck. Please use the sign-up sheet Jon Diner, N5JLD, has set-up for us so we know what you’re bringing to the party!
A gift exchange will be held after dinner – gift limit is $20.00.
NOTE: The meeting location changed as the Emmanuel Building is not currently available due to the on-going COVID-19 problem.

The Committee has been monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. We have worked very closely with our local and state health departments, Tarrant County and the Cities of Forest Hill and Fort Worth.
While we held out hope that in 2021, we would be able to host the Cowtown, that has not been the case. It is with a great sadness that we must inform all that we are canceling The Cowtown Hamfest 2021 and the event postponed until January 14 -15, 2022.
We must begin planning early to bring quality vendors to our event. They place us on their calendars and make a place for us. Our loyal patrons also plan in advance, so they can have that weekend free. It is only right we think of them and their safety. We pride ourselves in bringing you a quality Hamfest. We would settle for nothing less.
We have gathered input from the Amateur Community, Health and Safety, and our Vendors. We see the continued expansion of the deadly Covid-19 Virus and know the vulnerability of our Amateur Community. We have made this decision out of a genuine concern for the health and safety of the attendees, vendors, volunteers, presenters and staff.
Thank you for your understanding. It is a disappointment for all of us. We look forward to seeing all of you at the Cowtown Hamfest 2022, January 14-15, 2022.
Details regarding this cancellation will be posted at www.cowtownhamfest.com.
