OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE 2024 DAYTON HAMVENTION CWOPS ANNUAL DINNER – THURSDAY, MAY 16 AT 7 PM
Last year we held our annual Hamvention CWops dinner at a new venue, near Xenia and not far from the Hope Hotel and Conference Center. For many years before that we held it at the Spaghetti House in downtown Dayton, but our need for more space necessitated a new approach. Again in 2024 we will hold our gala event at the Rona Banquet Hall, 1043 Rona Parkway Drive, Fairlawn, OH 45324. There is space for 150 people with plenty of parking, and we will have our own caterer. Those who attended last year were very happy with the event and we expect this year it will be even better! During dinner we will have our usual interesting presentations and updates, with lots of opportunities for chatting with folks you have only met on the air – or maybe saw last year at this event! It is certainly the CWops social event of the year!
The Rona Banquet hall is ours from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m. on Thursday, May 16, meaning it will be possible to have private or group meetings there before the dinner, subject to coordination with W1UU for access. (Note that several of us will be busy on Thursday gathering supplies for the dinner.) Our buffet dinner will commence at about 7 p.m. (No alcoholic beverages will be available at the event). Soft drinks will be available with a donation request of $1 each (via a basket that will be placed next to the beverages.)
The cost of the dinner is $39 per person. You may make your reservation and pay using the payment button below. Gerry, W1VE, will manage the list of attendees and track payments.
At the dinner we will have a list of those who have paid. There can be no refunds because we will be giving the caterer an attendance number that will be the basis for our club payment.
It is not too early to reserve your spot for the 2024 CWops dinner! See you there!
