There will be a cash bar starting at 5:30 p.m., with dinner served at 7:00.
Following the event, there will be a separate room and cash bar available
for more fellowship. This is an excellent opportunity to meet new hams and
to renew old acquaintances as well as to learn about past DXpeditions
and those in the planning stages.
The Marriott is very accommodating to a group our size. The dining room is
on the ground floor so there are no steps, the dining room is very large,
and there is ample free, on-site parking.
This dinner is always well attended by some of the most avid DXers in the
world. The 2018 dinner had over 400 attendees! As in the past, there will
be some major door prizes, and there is always great anticipation as to
who will be named the “DXpedition of the Year®”. Additionally, the Island
Radio Expedition Foundation (IREF) will present the “IOTA DX-Peditioner of
the Year” award during the dinner.
