The MARS end of year dinner was held on Saturday, 30th November 2019. The venue this year was at the restaurant Greedy Dragon, Kendra Mall, St. Pierre. There was a good attendance making for a festive group as can be seen by the photos.
During the evening there was a special moment of thanking individuals who have greatly contributed to the local amateur radio scene. The President, Daniel 3B8GJ made presentations in appreciation to Jacky 3B8CF for his many meritorious years of service as MARS Secretary. Also to Jean Marc 3B8DU and Patrice 3B8FA for their outstanding work on establishing and promoting satellite communications, notably with QO-100 as well as with satellite ground station projects with several schools. Therefore, making a significant contribution to promoting amateur radio with students and local authorities.
There was fun moments with a special tombola draw where goodies bags were won by several participants. A most enjoyable evening was had by all. We thank the organisers and those that helped to set-up the venue. Thanks also go to our photographers who captured the ambience of the gathering.
