MVARC Annual Christmas Party      1/12/2019

It was a wild and roudy shindig at the annual MVARC Winter Party on Saturday, January 12th.  But luckily the police were held at bay by the great staff at the Happy Landing Restaurant.  Who knew that dancing naked on the tables at a public place was illegal?  At any rate we had a GREAT turnout and even had some new faces.  Congratulations to Alex Payne KF7LDR for getting the HAM OF THE YEAR award.  Bob Rodman N7SVI won the big prize of the evening, the Yaesu FTM-100 Fusion radio.  And "Bil" K8MPW, MVARC President, was a GREAT Emcee.
