General information:
This year’s banquet presentation will be provided by Gene Spinelli, K5GS.  Gene will share about his recent trip to Clipperton Island as part of the TX5S DXpedition.  The meal will be catered by Bubba’s Silver Spoon.  There will be many door prizes, including the grand prize, a Yaesu FT-710 AESS donated by Gigaparts.

The banquet venue is a museum and doesn’t have a liquor license.  We can’t sell it, so we’ll just give it away.  Each dinner ticket sold will come with two (2) drink tickets for either beer or wine.  If you have ever been to a Dayton banquet, you know that beers there cost $7 apiece, so this could be quite a bargain.
