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 60 hams to get together, eat dinner, and communicate with each other. This dinner happens on the third Thursday of January, the Second Saturday of May (to miss Hamvention), and the Third Saturday of September at 6:30 pm.
To spread the load, and fun, of hosting these dinners, the member clubs of CORA take turns organizing the event. Each club sponsors one about every two years. The hosting club selects the location and makes the arrangements with a restaurant to host the 60 or so people that show up. Also, the host club makes a presentation and then facilitates a round-robin discussion by all 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.
