Oklahoma DX Association
The Annual OKDXA Fall Banquet has been set for Saturday, the 20th of October. Having learned my lesson, this is NOT the CQWW SSB contest weekend.
We will have roast beef, fried catfish, and fried chicken complete with veggies and dessert.
Start time is 1800 CST (0000 UTC 21 October) at the Cattle Country Lodge, 1200 N 8th Ave, Stroud, OK, 74079-4751 (918-968-9515).
I expect the cost to be $20 per person, but this hasn't been finally determined.
Please RSVP to me, at email@example.com, and please invite others to come. Especially non-members!
I'm looking for a program for the evening: if you have program ideas, please contact me as soon as you can so we can collect whatever equipment we might need.
