COMARA/IRAA Social Events

We received the following note from the IRAA Social Committee (Alan Olson) with a look ahead to coming events. IRAA has invited all COMARA members to participate in these events.

Strathmore - March 29
After a very enjoyable all Russian classical music concert at Strathmore last Sun., 29th Mar., which was attended by 20 members/spouses and friends from IRAA/COMARA, the Social Committee has lined up two more social events during the next couple of months for members who may be in the area and interested in attending.

Summer Picnic at Seneca Creek State Park - May 17

First, our annual COMARA/IRAA & Intelsat summer picnic will once again be held at Seneca Creek State Park in Gaithersburg, MD, on Sun., 17th May, 12 pm-4 pm. Last year there were about 72+ persons in attendance. This year we are hoping to reach the century mark. The cost is $12.00 for members, $12.00 for one guest, and $15.00 for each additional guest and non-members. There will be plenty of good food/drinks and raffle prizes for lucky winners.

Million Dollar Quartet at Wolftrap - June 27

Then, thanks to a suggestion by several members from the Social Events Survey handed out at the General Assembly on Sun., 19th Oct., we are venturing forth to Wolf Trap for the first time and have procured great seats in the front orchestra, rear orchestra and loge sections for the smash hit Million Dollar Quartet on Sat., 27th Jun., 2 pm. Think Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis. If we have at least 20 persons in our group attending to attract a 10% discount, the cost of tickets will be $58.50, $45.00, and $37.80 for the front orchestra, rear orchestra and loge seats, respectively. Lawn tickets do not attract a discount and are first-come-first-served at $25.00 each.

Announcements for these events will soon be available on the COMARA website If you are interested in attending either or both of these events, your RSVP/payment for the picnic must be rcvd by Friday, May 8, and, your RSVP/payment for the Million Dollar Quartet must be rcvd by Monday, May 25.
