Annual Mini Flea Market and Christmas Party

Come on out on December 14th for the Mini Flea Market and Christmas Party. This is a chance to clear out your old gear and make room for the new goodies you’re expecting from Santa! Bring any gear you’d like to sell or give away, and a wallet full of cash for the gear you’d like to buy from other members. Everyone who attends is eligible for a chance at the many door prizes that will be drawn throughout the evening, including gift certificates to a popular commercial vendor. To keep the trading floor hopping, we’ll be serving coffee, juice and water along with assorted Christmas baking. Spouses or sweethearts and other guests are welcome to attend. The meeting starts at its usual 7:30 pm, in the Colonel By Room. For any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Janice Neelands or Margaret Tidman at call sign at RAC. Hope to see you there!Janice Neelands, VA3PAXMargaret Tidman, VA3VXN
