MCWA November Dinner/Social Event

Please join us on November 6th for our first MCWA Dinner/Social in a long time (There will be no regular MCWA meeting that evening). I think that you will have an enjoyable evening out with your fellow amateur radio friends! Below are all the details. Most importantly, please do not wait too long to sign up as seating is limited to the first 60 participants.

The Dinner/Social will be held at: The Village Squire, 4818 Northwest Hwy, Crystal Lake, IL 60014

Appetizers (courtesy of the MCWA) will be served starting at 6pm. There will be a Vegetable Tray with a variety of fresh cut vegetables served with ranch dressing, a Cheese Tray with Swiss, cheddar, Mozzarella & pepper jack cheese with assorted crackers, and a Fruit Tray with seasonal fresh cut fruit. All soft drinks are included. A full bar will be available all evening with individual checks (not included in the dinner price).

We will sit down for dinner at 7pm. Dinner selections will include a choice of Chicken, Fish & Beef:

  • Chicken Brochette: Tender Chicken marinated in olive oil and herbs, skewered with vegetables and broiled to perfection. Served over rice pilaf with garlic bread.
  • Fresh Salmon: Broiled, served with garlic mashed potato and vegetable of the day.
  • New York Strip Steak: 12 oz Black Angus New York strip steak (cooked medium), served with baked potato and vegetable of the day.

All dinners include a Cup of Soup or Dinner Salad, dinner rolls and butter, popcorn, Soft Drinks, Coffee & Hot Tea.

The cost (regardless of entree selection) is $25 per person (or $50 per couple).

Seating is limited to the first 60 members/guests that sign up and pay. The signup cutoff is when the paid participant count reaches 60 people or October 28th, whichever comes first.

There will be a short program and a door prize raffle. Name badges will be printed in advance and waiting at the door for all members and guests (but bring your MCWA name badge if you have one).

You can sign up at our October 2nd MCWA meeting. Jim McDonald N7US will be coordinating the sign up and collecting your payments. Payment (cash or check made out to: “McHenry County Wireless Association”) is due at sign up. If you prefer you can send Jim your name & callsign (and guest name & call sign), payment and entree selection(s) to Jim’s home address as listed on or on the ARRL data base.

No need to get all dressed up as the dress code will be "nice casual" (please no T-shirts). We hope that you (and maybe your guest) will join us for our MCWA dinner/social event!
