The “We Screwed Up and You Save” HamFest Sale

Ever have one of those days where nothing goes according to plan, and that one significant step just messes everything up? Yeah, we’re having one of those months here.

After getting our website back up after being down for a day and a half, we discovered that somehow, one of the linked Fest listings listed the ticket price at $5, rahter than the prices liste on our flyers.


When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When the advertising you published offers a lower price than you planned, have a sale! So, effective today, the Club decided to drop the online ordering and adjust our price to $5 for all admission tickets purchased on the day of the Fest. With the reduced ticket price, we won’t bring the credit card scanner, so all ticket purchases will be cash only.

If you already purchased online, we’ve already refunded the difference back to your account, with our thanks for supporting amateur radio in Jefferson, Rock and Walworth Counties here in south-central Wisconsin. Enjoy the $2 or, even better, bring it to the Fest to spend on cool Ham gear.

If you haven’t purchased tickets already, here’s the 4-step plan to save you money and impress your friends: (1) Show up at 892 N Jackson Ave in Jefferson, WI (click for a map). THIS Saturday, Aug 6th, between 8AM and noon. Follow the signs to enter at the South entrance; (2) Buy a $5 cash ticket, glowing in the knowledge that you’re getting HamFest fun at a discounted price; (3) Search through up to 50 vendors offering the coolest in Ham gear, electronics, antennas, and other unique finds; (4) Take your stuff home and brag to your friends about your skill as a bargain hunter!

Here’s the Fest flyer — just ignore the old pricing!

See you Saturday!
