Well as most may know it's been a few years now since we had an Electrafest get together. I know with all this virus mess most are hold up at home so I wanted to post this message to see if there would be any interest in getting together again for another Electrafest once everything gets back to normal again. I think we are mor than overdue for another event and can help or host the event. If anyone has an opinion or is interested in anothe rElectrafest event please comment here or pm me. I can also be reached on Facebook via the Electra page. Thanks Arthur aka mortarman120gang11c :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:

Glad to see some interest. Take in mind we need to wait until this Covid mess is gone but lets start working on some details then. It requires much time and effort to put one of these together and get word out so time to get rolling now if we want one this year. Is anyone interested in hosting? If not then I would be Happy to host but as stated need time to put everything together and ready and get suitable areas etc. Give me some feedback gents and lets Make This Happen. Thanks Arthur :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :up:

Mate, the longer the lead time, the better for me, anyway!! So, given the mess the world is in presently, look at the most comfortable time of year weather-wise at yours next year, Arthur?!?
I've not been to Georgia....

Best time of year temp wise here is Mid March -April starts getting hot early May. I am up to host no problem. If this virus mess gets clear the fall Sept-Oct is nice here as well. Give me your thought guys so we can make this event happen. Thanks

I am willing to host a 2020 Electrafest event if anyone would care to attend. Large or small I believe it is in order to have another event after some years off. If anyone is serious and can give me a timeframe they can work into their schedules I will be Happy to host the event. Summer or fall is good but I am retired so any time works for me. Please give me some feedback and lets get this event planned. Always fun to get together with Electra and Electra Westone fans. Please help spread the word on the facebook pages as well. Hope we can all make this happen in 2020. I live in a small rural town so no need to worry about overcrowding etc You can google Tifton, Ga USA for details. Thanks everyone. Arthur :up:

Greetings all. Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. As of today with the current Covid status I am leaning towards the first or second weekend in Oct 2020 Oct 3-4 or Oct 10-11 as the weather should be great and Covid all gone. We are open again in Ga but with certain restrictions and I hope those will all be a thing of the past by Oct. Let me know what you think on the dates and safety issues during that time frame. I think we should all be in great shape by then. You can comment here, pm me or email me at mortarman120gang@yahoo.com or on facebook electra page. thanks all. :up:

Well I guess the train wreck of a year 2020 is still a crash in progress. I had hoped to put together an electrafest event this year but looks like we will reload and try again for next year. :bawl: :bawl:
