AARO Holiday Party

AARO would like to invite you to the Alamo Area Radio Organization Holiday Party on December 9, 2015 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm. This year we are switching locations. The party will now be held at Blanco BBQ located at 13259 Blanco Road, San Antonio, Texas. You will order off the menu and then sit in the private room. This will allow you to cater your meal to your budget and your tastes.

There is a suggested $5 per person entry fee for those 10 years old and older. That $5 will get you your first raffle ticket. Additional Raffle tickets can be purchased at the door for $1

This year we are giving away many prizes including a Transceiver (HT). There will also be a silent auction with the grand prize being a very nice Brass Paddle.

Please bring the entire family!
