The 2012 Dayton Hamvention CCA banquet has come and gone and it was reportedly a great time. Unfortunately, I had to miss it this year due to an issue that came up with my home.

One of the highlights of each annual dinner that we hold, both at Dayton in May and at Dallas in June, is the drawing for door prizes. This year was no exception. Without the donations listed below, we could not have all that fun, and get you – our suppliers – that exposure.
To you as a supporter of the CCA, I – as the current president of the CCA – would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU in capital letters.
Also I want to encourage all of our members to consider purchasing from these generous suppliers when the opportunity arises.
There will be a complete report on Dayton along with pictures and some more details on the exciting B-29 Fifi project. This will be posted after it is released in the Signal Magazine report next month. The Editor of the Signal has threatened me with disaster if I upstage his Dayton 2012 Report article.
73s for now, and please see the list of donors below.
Bill Carns, CCA President
