SARC is sponsoring a bus trip to this year's Sea-Pac hamfest in Seaside, Oregon. This year marks the 30th Annual Sea-Pac convention, which is the largest ham event in the Pacific Northwest.
SARC members, family and friends and will be transported by luxury coach for this great two-day holiday to one of the most beautiful oceanside spots in the Northwest. Traveling as a group not only makes the trip more affordable, it gives us a great opportunity to relax and socialize.
Our general itinerary is for an approx. 7:00 a.m. departure on Friday, June 1st, leaving from pick-up spots in Surrey-Nordel and South Surrey. (Additional pick-up spots may be arranged.) We'll arrive in Seaside mid-afternoon for hotel check-in, with time to relax before the Sea-Pac spaghetti dinner.
Sea-Pac offers a full slate of events on Saturday, from seminars to the famous Flea Market. Visit their website for details: www.seapac.org. While hams are attending seminars, swap meet, etc., family members (kids welcome) can enjoy a coach tour of local sights in nearby Cannon Beach and Astoria, enjoy the beach and tax-free shopping in picturesque Seaside.
SARC's package price includes transportation and registration for Sea-Pac events. Sea-Pac has arranged discounts with local hotels, and you'll need to make your own hotel booking. Please don't delay in making hotel reservations, as rooms sell-out very quickly for Hamfest each year.
Sea-Pac organizers have arranged for hotel discounts with a few local hotels. Our tour bus will accommodate drop-off's and pick-up's at two of these sponsor hotels: Seaside Microtel Inn and Best Western Oceanside Resort. This includes bus transfers back and forth from Hamfest events and meals to these two hotels. If you wait too long to book, and have to make reservations at another area hotel, we can't guarantee bus service. You may have to walk or taxi to the two hotels serving as hubs for our group's transportation. When you book at one of these two hotels, be sure to let them know you're attending Sea-Pac to get the discount rates.
