Palm Springs Hamfest 2013
PALM SPRINGS HAMFEST 2013 HAS BEEN CANCELLED, DUE TO LAND USE RESTRICTIONS!
Press Release: Palm Springs Hamfest 2013 cancelled!!
Riverside County acts to protect Dinacoma Caseyi (Brunnescens?) beetle
habitat! WIKI-Casey's June Beetle
The members of the Desert R.A.T.S. are sad to announce that Palm Springs
Hamfest 2013 had to be cancelled and regret any inconvenience to those
who already made travel and accommodation plans. Some of the area in
which previous Desert R.A.T.S. Palm Springs Hamfests had been held with
great success has been deemed a protective habitat for the beetle and is
therefore no longer available as an event site.
Please foward this information to anyone you think may have been
planning to attend the 2013 event.
Palm Springs Hamfest 2014-better, bigger, and beetle friendly. First
weekend in March 2014.
The Desert R.A.T.S. are pleased to announce that the next event will be
held in an extended format with additional activities and added
opportunities for overnight stays in the heart of Palm Springs while
still maintaining the nostalgic, old-time atmosphere of Hamfests of an
almost gone era.
