Family Dinner Returns January 16

The Schaumburg Amateur Radio Club is once again hosting a dinner for all club members.    This event is open to club members, their significant other, and to all singles.  Two years ago we had a great time at The Lucky Monk in South Barrington while last year covid prohibited a holiday party but now we are ready to once again participate in a fun evening.   This is a great opportunity for you or your partner to meet the people they have heard about for years and to renew friendships with others.  One great thing about our club is the ability to make everyone feel at home.

The event is scheduled for Sunday, January 16th at 6:00 in the evening.  We will have a private room capable of seating 40 people so please reserve a place for yourself and your guest without delay.   The club is providing appetizers and everyone will be responsible for their own meal and beverage charges.   The special menu for this event contains a variety which should please everyone.

This event is a great way for new club members, and those who have been in the club for years, to meet others and have a chance to learn a little about them at a relaxed and fun event.
Additional details will be posted here and through SARC-All.  Please let John KD9KSH (member roster) know if you plan to attend by sending an e-mail with your name and if you will have a guest.   The previous holiday dinner was a great success where all who attended had a great time, and I am sure this dinner will be another event to remember.

Update December 30, 2021 Regarding Covid-19 and vaccination policies:

The SARC Holiday Party taking place on January 16th will require that we comply with the revised covid procedures which are as follows:
Show proof of having received the covid vaccine injections or show proof that a covid test has taken place within 48 hours prior to our event and that the test results are negative.
As you know, covid testing sites are being opened in many locations so it should not be hard to have a test prior to the SARC party.
