From the club president:

"I 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.

Thanks,

Nick Tillich
WARCI President"

WARCI club members will be able to participate in virtual ZOOM meeting later this year. Members will find information in the club's September newsletter.

Agreed, any thoughts to making the classified section on the website bigger to help assist those that are looking to sell items?

Although the "live" swaps will not take place, WARCI will be hosting a virtual Zoom meet later this year. Members can find information in the upcoming September WARCI club newsletter. If you haven't yet joined the WARCI club, or you forgot to renew your 2020 membership, let this be a reminder.

Cool. I'll be able to buy and sell stuff live online in my underwear. :D
I'm guessing I'll have to supply my own pizza this time.

Is the newsletter and the ability to participate in the zoom meet for members only?
I have many other questions but I'll hold off til Sept.

Newsletters come as part of your membership, so if you've paid your dues, you'll get one.

I won't know the details yet for the Zoom meet until I get my newsletter, so I can't yet answer your second question.

I'm not a member so I'll have to wait for word of mouth info.

Did the Zoom meet ever happen?

A couple of weeks ago I looked on WARCI website and found nothing. I also looked at the ARRL swapfest website for Wisconsin 2021 and it was empty. ( sigh )

Our Zoom meeting was held on October 25th. Since it was a members-only event, it was announced in the newsletter and to our members email list.

The WARCI Board has decided on several meet dates for mid-late 2021 and will announce them at a later date. Keep an eye out on this forum for an announcement!

2021 isn't shaping up too well so far. Still nothing listed for both Cedarburg swaps, the big Oak Creek swap and any antique radio club swaps. :cry:

There are a few Hamfests scheduled: Kaukauna, WI: http://www.fcarc.club/sunshineswap.php and DeKalb, IL: http://www.karc-club.org/

It's understandable that a lot of clubs are gun shy about releasing new dates for 2021 after the slew of cancellations for 2020. Meets are time consuming and expensive to plan and until recently the success rate of the vaccine was a big unknown. I'd guess that you'll start to see more meet dates released in the next 3 months. We have several meet dates planned for mid to late 2021 and will be releasing them in the next couple of weeks, along with our swap meet safety plan.
