CARS Hamvention Bus

Printable Flyer


The Cuyahoga Amateur Radio Society is happy to announce that it will once again be sponsoring a bus trip to The Hamvention at the Green County Fairgrounds in Xenia, Ohio.


While the Hamvention runs for several days, the CARS bus will only be visiting the Hamvention on Saturday, May 20, 2023. The 56-passenger bus is modern, comfortable, and wheelchair accessible. We will not be stopping for breakfast on the way down, but there may be a fast-food stop on the way home.


The Bus trip will cost $50.00 dollars per person.
Your reservation and payment must be made in advance. When purchasing bus tickets please be sure to include your callsign, cellphone number, email address, and the stop at which you will be boarding the bus. Payment options are listed below. You are responsible for both your food and your Hamvention ticket.


Hamvention tickets may be purchased in advance at: http://hamvention.org/purchase-tickets


You may board the bus in either Middleburg Heights or in Brunswick.
