DIXIE AMATEUR RADIO CLUB


NOVEMBER 2004 NEWSLETTER



2004 CHRISTMAS DINNER PARTY
The DARC Christmas Dinner on Tuesday, December 7, 2004, will be the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Club. (See next item below). We have been receiving positive response from members regarding the location and menu change. We will try to make that event a successful completion to this year. Dan Farwell, W8EQA, and Gary Zabriskie, N7ARE, are working on securing the many door prizes that are ever popular at that event.  
 
Please see the DARC Announcements Page for info on the Christmas Dinner:
http://www.dixieham.org/announcements.html
 
We will be requesting a confirmation from Dinner attendees closer to the end of the month to give the caterer a final count.  Be looking for that sometime between Thanksgiving and the end of the month.
  
Thank you for your support!
