I am pleased to announce the first AMSAT/TAPR Banquet will be held Friday evening May 18,2007 at the Air Force Museum in Dayton, OH in conjunction with the 2007 Dayton Hamvention. The two groups share many members and this gives everyone the opportunity to attend both dinners.  The "Dinner Under the Wings" festivities will begin at 18:00 with a cash bar and appetizers in the Air Power Gallery (World War II). The buffet dinner will be served at 19:00 in the Cold War area.  Following a few AMSAT and TAPR announcements after dinner you will be free to roam the museum.  The price for the dinner is $35.00 per person and includes appetizers, salad, meal, dessert, coffee, iced tea, tax and gratuity.

Reservations are required.  Tickets can be purchased online at the AMSAT Store. 
There will be no Banquet ticket sales at the AMSAT booth this year. We expect this to be a very popular event, so reserve your tickets early.  Reservations will close this year on Monday night, May 14,2007 to allow us to give the museum a count on Tuesday.

At 5:00 PM on Friday afternoon there will be a special showing of the IMAX movie "Space Station".  This movie is approximately 47 minutes long and contains about 4 minutes of amateur radio contacts between school children and the International Space Station.  The IMAX theater is located in the museum building off the main lobby area.  Attendees at the movie will be able to go to the banquet at 6:00 PM when the doors open about 10 minutes after the movie is over.  The lobby contains restrooms, telephones and some seating.  At least 50 people must sign up for the movie in advance.  Call the museum IMAX theater on (937)-253-IMAX to make reservations.  Special rates apply for children and seniors. Adults are $6.00, seniors are $5.50 and children 8 through college 22 (student ID required) are $4.50.
