The Forums and Presentations portion of Morristown HamFest is a new addition…
LARC is PROUD and EXCITED to explore this new adventure. Our panel of Presenters brings a wide variety of knowledge and first hand knowledge of their topics.
This is an added feature and will not cost any extra to our friends at HAMFEST / Builders Fest, and we hope it adds more than just the normal Vending and Tailgating aspect.
The LARC family looks forward to seeing you there!!
