Next Meeting


INSTEAD... We will have a Holiday Dinner, December 5, 2023 5:30PM at Black Bear Diner in Sunnyvale.

The dinner will end with a Ham Radio, Yankee gift exchange. Participation is optional.
This is the rules set we've been using for the gift exchange.
The wrapped gift should not be of great value, and might be ham radio related.

Black Bear is expecting around 15 people, based on the past dinner attendance. They usually have plenty of room. The reservation is in Brian Kline's name.

The location is the Black Bear Diner in Sunnyvale:
415 E El Camino Real
