*Hamfest location ( same as 2019) :*

  Melbourne Auditorium
  625 E. Hibiscus Blvd.
  Melbourne, FL. 32901

  _*Tables are still available*_, so if you are thinking about reserving
  a table at Hamfest, it's NOT too late but you need to act quickly.
  Tables are only $25 for two days. Reserving now will aid in reducing
  wait times the day of the event.

  The website has the *New Table Layout for 2020*which gives attendees
  more space to move around and distance themselves. Click on the link
  to see the layout: New Table Layout for 2020

  Click on the link for the Vendor Reservation Form for Tables and
  Tickets here: Vendor Reservation Form

  We also have the *Tailgate area* outside which you do not need to sign
  up for, just come and sell. Tailgate spots are $15.00 for the two
  days. Tailgating is on a first-come first-served basis and applies
  Friday - _if you have an assigned spot Friday, you should park in the
  same spot on Saturday._ Pre-payment and reservations are not available.

  For those that show up Saturday morning for the first time - do not
  park in a tailgating space before being assigned a spot. Our tailgate
  team will be available starting 7 am on the auditorium property.

  The auditorium management insists you do not show up earlier than 7 am
  on auditorium property.

  We have a Consignment Area in the East Room where you can bring items
  and the club will sell the items for you , so you don’t need to sit at
  a table inside or outside. The club has a large area to display your
  equipment. Please print and fill out the agreement form which can be
  found here: Consignment Table Form

  We are updating the website as we get closer to the date of the event.
  Information on forums, prizes and testing will be placed there as soon
  as possible. Tickets are $10.00. _Currently advance ticket sales are
  only available to those making table reservations._

  *License testing*: if you wish to take an amateur exam they are being
  offered Saturday morning but *NOT at the auditorium*. *You MUST
  pre-register* by emailing vetesting at cfl.rr.com
  <mailto:vetesting at cfl.rr.com?subject=Registration%20for%20Amateur%20Exam%20at%20Hamfest>
  for further information.

  ***Procedural Changes due to Covid-19:*
  1) Face coverings MUST be worn to obtain entrance to the event.
  2) The side doors to the auditorium will only be open during vendor
  setup and tear-down times. This is necessary to track the headcount
  inside the building. All other times the front doors must be used.
