Last Chance for Holiday Party FUN !!!

If you missed the December 1 deadline we are extending it until tomorrow (December 3rd) at 8:00 PM. You need to contact either Marty, Diane or myself via telephone, email, or Facebook with your desires. We will put you on the list and you can pay ‘at the door’ of the Steaming Tender on December 9th.

You can reach me at 413-237-4666 most anytime.

Please remember you ARE committing to purchasing a ticket – even if you don’t go so be sure before you call

Holiday Party Tickets


I hope that all is well with you and yours and that you have enjoyed the rather pleasant transition from the Indian summer into the colder fall weather, a chilling prelude to yet another New England winter; but, at least there is the bonus of increased sunspot activity and the phenomenal HF activity experienced during October which will hopefully continue throughout the winter DX season.

This morning, I was comparing the 2012 Holiday Party attendance report with this year’s tickets sales report and noticed that some of you had not as yet purchased your 2013 tickets, so, I thought I would post another message to jog your memory. Tickets are still available for the December 9th Holiday Party at the Steaming Tender Restaurant in Palmer Massachusetts. The ticket cost is $15 per ticket. If you e-mail me at or call me at 413 525-3717, you can reserve your ticket(s) and collect them at the door the evening of the event. You can make payment for the tickets by mailing a check to the HCRA at PO Box 562 Agawam, MA 01001-562 or by cash or check the evening of the party.

I hope to see you at the party and to hear you on the bands.

73 and good DX,

Marty W1MJB
