YOU ARE INVITED TO THE W6JKV/K5AND BBQ
OCTOBER 7-8, 2011, Austin, TX

Please join Jimmy, W6JKV and Dick, K5AND, for another great opportunity to BS about Cycle 24, talk about new dxpeditions,  meet hams and their spouses from all over the world who love 6 meters, white noise & EME, hear presentations on really neat stuff and see demos of more really neat stuff.  It is also a great chance to meet and learn about the new technologies that are changing our environment from the people involved in making it happen.

This year marks the 21st time that hams from all over the world and 25-35 states will gather to eat BBQ and chat each other up.  Most importantly, we get most of the hams that are aggressive expeditioners. Sunspots are finally taking off, which promises some excitement for our new cycle.

Last year, we added live video conferencing which worked out pretty well, so we will likely have a presentation or two this year as well via this new venue.

We try hard to make this an event that non-hams enjoy, want to attend and one where everyone feels welcome.  Despite the protests from a few about the noise during meals, there will be music as always.

This year, the event venue is at Dick and Kathie’s.

For those not familiar with Austin, it is the “live music capital of the USA”, featuring blues, rock, folk and country.  It is probably second to Silicon Valley in high tech, plus it is hilly and has beautiful lakes.  It is slightly hot at times, and we have an outstanding assortment of bats, insects, snakes and other varmints.

The event starts on Friday whenever the first person arrives.  A  Tex-Mex meal will be served at 1830.  The event continues all day Saturday with hotdogs at noon and the BBQ dinner at 1530.  There will be margaritas, beer, water, soft drinks & popcorn and both days.

MOST IMPORTANT, ANYONE PLANNING TO ATTEND MUST RSVP. 
ALSO IMPORTANT IS FOR THE SPOUSES WHO WANT TO GO THE OUTING ON SATURDAY MORNING TO RSVP TO KATHIE (kh (at) dkhanson.com). 

This event is too large to plan without knowing how many are coming for each meal.
If you’re a vendor planning to show equipment, please coordinate your needs with Dick (dick (at) dkhanson.com). And finally, if you would like to make a PowerPoint presentation, again, please coordinate with Dick.

We need your email commitment by Sept 14, (please, we can’t do this right without your help, so help us help you thru timely communications.)

You have more accommodation options than in years past. Here are some choices from last year, and we will have more to add later.
