New this year, the Shelby Hamfest offers a Youth Lounge, recommended for ages 5 and up! The Youth Lounge provides fun ham radio related activities for our youth to spark interest in our wonderful hobby! Each hour and/or half-hour, we will showcase a new activity. Morning activities will be repeated in the afternoon. There will be an Amateur Radio Scavenger Hunt at 10am that will lead youth all over the fairgrounds with a cool prize for the winner!!! After lunch, please plan to participate in our exciting Geocache Hunt at 1 pm!!! There will also be a cool prize for the winner of the geocache hunt!
