Things to do in Sweetwater County
Yes, you are coming for the ARRL Wyoming Section Convention, or what is better known as Wyoming HamCon 2018. But there are a lot of other reasons to visit our area, both for yourself and for others who may come with you. If you want to take a quick vacation at the end of the summer, this is one of the best possibilities that you may find.
We will have a room at the convention devoted to family activities for spouses, kids and really anyone who has some spare time. This will be a place to stop, talk, look around and just rest while your spouse investigates the many amateur radio activities during the convention.
United Airlines operates from the Rock Springs-Sweetwater County Airport. We should have daily flights to and from Denver during the ARRL Wyoming Section Ham Convention. The airport also has an excellent FBO for those that fly in by private plane.
