GLH-2019 Logo Contest for GLH-2018
Since 2008, we created a new logo for each hamfest. (See all the logos.) This time, we want YOU to create the hamfest logo for GLH-2019. Be working on this throughout the year. There will be a nice prize for the winner and your logo on our website and in all GLH-2019 advertising - including next year's admission ticket.
The rules are simple. Make the logo in color on an 8-1/2 by 11 inch sheet of paper in landscape format. It can be hand drawn or created using a computer. The logo must have either "Greater Louisville Hamfest 2019" or "GLH-2019" or both in the logo. The winning hand-drawn logo will be used in next year's advertising. See complete details for the contest or download the flyer.
We're excited to see all the talent in the area and we hope this will be a fun way for you to be part of the Greater Louisville Hamfest legacy.
News for Greater Louisville Hamfest 2018 & ARRL Kentucky State Convention
On September 12th we received the email that "Director Williams has approved the holding of an ARRL approved Kentucky State Convention on September 8, 2018 in Shepherdsville, KY under the sponsorship of the Greater Louisville Hamfest Association." ARRL State Conventions are always an exciting time for our hamfest. Have any ideas for the hamfest? Remember, this is OUR HAMFEST and we want it to be the best we can offer.
Your Input for Convention Forums is Wanted
This year Greater Louisville Hamfest 2018 will again be host to the ARRL Kentucky State Convention. We are looking forward to having our ARRL representatives join us for our hamfest. Something that is very important to GLH-2018 will be our forums and we want to provide programs that will be of interest to those in Kentuckiana.
ARRL Kentucky Section Manager, Steve Morgan, W4NHO would like your input for forums or events. In January Kentucky News he wrote: It is to all our benefit to be able to plan an interesting convention to showcase what Kentucky is all about and maybe training that may be beneficial for everyone. September will be here before we know it. Would appreciate some input so planning can take place. If there is something you would like to showcase let me know.
If you have any suggestions, please send them to
Volunteers to Help Organize GLH-2018 Wanted
