2013 Banquet Recap

The 2013 Banquet has come and gone.  This year the Radio Club of America celebrated our 104 anniversary.

For those of you who were not able to attend the Banquet,  you missed a great event.  This year we were at the Peabody/ Hyatt Regency Hotel in Orlando, Florida.  The weather was perfect and the venue was spectacular.  The Technical Symposium was outstanding  ( please see the Technical Symposium Recap )  with a number of very interesting speakers.

The Banquet was,  once again,  a grand event.  Michael “Mic” Woltman of NASA,  gave a very interesting presentation on rocket launches at the Kennedy Space Center and what it takes to put a satellite in orbit.

The food was excellent as was the camaraderie.  We also had an outstanding silent auction,  thanks to Elaine Walsh,  and raised more than $6,000 for the Scholarship prgrams.

We are already making plans for next year at the New York Athletic Club,  so plan now to join us in 2014.
