Dear Fellow Contesters,
It gives me great pleasure to announce the 2011 Florida Contest Group
Orlando Contest Dinner and SuperSuite! Mark your calendars for Friday,
February 11 and come to the Orlando HamCation, the Dayton of the Southeast,
and make time after the hamfest closes on Friday night to come just five
miles up the road for the 2011 FCG Contest Dinner and SuperSuite! Tickets
for the Contest Dinner are only $20 and must be reserved in advance. Only
100 tickets are available so reserve early!
2009 YASME Excellence Award Winner Jamie Dupree, NS3T, has generously agreed
to be our guest speaker for the 2011 Orlando Contest Dinner. Jamie will
speak both about radio-sport.net and about his day job as a Capitol Hill
correspondent for Cox Radio. Doors open at 6:00pm for the Contest Dinner,
and dinner is served at 6:30pm.
Your dinner ticket also serves as your raffle ticket for one of our fabulous
prizes! Winning tickets will be drawn by our MC, K1TO, throughout the night.
You must be present to win. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors,
domestic beer will be FREE during the 2011 Orlando Contest Dinner and
Following the Contest Dinner and NS3T's address, we will begin the 2011 FCG
SuperSuite! Come hoist a beverage of your choice and socialize with fellow
contesters, and take on all comers in the CW and SSB pileup competition
(with great prizes for the overall winners on each mode as well as the high
score for a contester < 30 years of age and the high score for a contester
licensed < 10 years)! Can't make it to the contest dinner? Come for the
SuperSuite when the doors open to everyone at 8:00pm!
