NECKRA Banquet, November 6 - Sign Up Now

Same great caterer with the same great food. Nick Lyesiuk signed-up early as soon as he found out the food would be the same great fare. See me at a race, or email/call to get signed-up. I need to get the count to our caterer near the event.

The banquet is being held at the Elks club in Northampton.

Very brief meeting: The meeting will be kept extremely brief to allow for better end-of-year socializing, awards and prize drawing. This also facilitates getting paddlers on their way back home at a tolerable time. Except for voting for officers and brief comments, the actual annual meeting substance is conducted at the competition meeting held later in the year with everyone invited. This is where the planning is done.

PRIZES: As of now we will again be doing the glass mugs for the top percentage of finishers in each of the categories for both canoe and kayak. We haven't received or come up with other alternatives. It is not too late, so if any one has an exciting alternative which would price-out the same, or comments on feelings about the mugs, please reply - probably to me only to keep from unwanted volumes of group emails. Also, give me feedback on the points races drawing prizes. I will be ordering these soon, and want to consider good items we haven't thought of in the past. Same $ allotment, so we can't get too outrageous. We will again be having the two ZRE paddles and one Epic kayak paddle as top prizes, and will have our Bag Lady's canoe and kayak boat covers/paddle bags.

We have been averaging 60 people a year, and the food has been spectacular. Spectacular people too of course.
