he ARRL Pacific Division 2020 Pacificon Convention is sponsored by the
Mt. Diablo ARC in the East Bay Section.  For those who have attended
Pacificon, you know it is an impressive event, well managed It will be
missed this year.  Here is the announcement passed on from Jim Siemons
(W6LK), EB Section Manager.

QUOTE
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March, the Mt. Diablo Amateur Radio
Club has been monitoring events, hoping that the pandemic would come
under control in time for Pacificon to proceed unaltered. But it is not
to be. After full consideration, we simply could not find a practical
scenario that would bring all the many factors together to produce a
successful Pacificon this year. The government restrictions on travel
and large group gatherings, continuing level of infections occurring in
the pandemic, and the increased level of risk by a substantial portion
of our attendees are just a few of the factors we considered. So with
considerable regret, Pacificon 2020 will not be held as an in-person
event.

Although we’re very disappointed, we intend to focus our plans on
making Pacificon 2021 the best ham radio convention in the western U.S.
We look forward to seeing all of you in person at the San Ramon Marriott
Hotel, Oct. 15-17, 2021.

All is not lost for this year, however. The Pacificon Committee is
investigating the possibility of having a virtual convention, on-line.
No details yet, but we hope to make some announcements next month.
Please keep checking our web site at www.pacificon.org; or send us an
email with any questions to info@pacificon.org.
