7th Annual COMARA/IRAA & Intelsat Summer Picnic - May 22

Last year there were 76 persons in attendance. This year, we are anticipating to reach the century mark in attendance and hope you can make it. This event is a lot of fun getting together with old friends and colleagues from Intelsat/Comsat days by gone and current Intelsat for some good food/drink and camaraderie. The cost is just $12.00 for members, $12.00 for one guest, and $15.00 for each additional guest and non-members. As is customary for this event, there will be plenty of good food/drinks and raffle prizes for lucky winners.
