Many years ago, the amateur radio clubs in the Oklahoma City area started an event that is now known as the “All Ham Dinner.” This dinner allows about 70 hams get together, eat dinner, and communicate with each other. This dinner happens on the third Thursday of January, May, and September at 6:30 pm.
The next All Ham Dinner will be held on September 19, 2019, at 6:30 pm. This dinner will be at the Hibachi Supreme Buffet, 1012 W. I-240, (South side of the South service road of I-240) in south Oklahoma City. No RSVP is needed, show up, get your meal, and join the fun in their large north banquet room. The Hibachi Supreme Buffet has a wide range of food that includes, Asian, steak, French fries, Mongolian Buffet, pizza, salads, desserts, Italian, and Greek Gyros. It’s very affordable and there’s something for everyone.
To spread the load, and fun, of hosting these dinners, the member clubs of CORA take turns with organizing the event. Each club sponsors one about every two years. The hosting club selects the location and makes the arrangments with a restaurant to host the 70 or so people that show up. Also, the host club makes a presentation and then facilitates a round-robin discussion by all of the clubs. Each club presents its recent activities or asks for assistance at a future event.
This meeting is sponsored by the Aeronautical Center Amateur Radio Club (ACARC). The sponsoring club sets up the logistics for the evening and emcees the event. Activities from each club in attendance are discussed to provide information exchange among groups.
