For those of you who who haven’t heard,  here’s another shameless plug
for what may be the best Awards Luncheon yet!

The Annual Hudson Awards Luncheon is fast approaching.  Please join me

Tickets this year are $42.50 per person.

All proceeds this year will be donated to the ARRL Legislative Issues
Advocacy Fund.  Most money is raised by advertising sales.  The past 2
years we have raised nearly $10,000 that has been donated to the ARRL.

The money this year will once again be used to help offset the
expenditures we’ve been making in support of our HR-1301/S.1685
advocacy effort.

I hope to see you at the luncheon on Sunday, November 8, 2015!
