Awards Banquet

An annual Awards Banquet for members and their guests is held every December. The Awards Banquet is always an enjoyable social event, as well as an opportunity to publicly recognize and express appreciation for those members who have helped to advance the purposes of the Club.


This year, due to an ever-shrinking number of suitable, in-town venues, we've been forced to book banquet space at the end of November.

This year's event will NOT be pot-luck.

Location:  Tower Lanes, 6323 6TH AVE

Agenda: buffet luncheon and Annual Awards Presentation

Price per-person:  $20 at the door

RSVP:  required by the venue, please sign up at the Clubhouse, at meetings, or contact the club secretary Mike Finnie ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call the phone number listed in the member directory).

Recognition Programs are described in the Standing Rules, as updated from time to time by the Board of Directors. Two of these annual awards are summarized below:


An award made annually, in the memory Doctor F. Clifford Spike W7OS, an early member of the Radio Club of Tacoma whose long service and devotion to the club was the inspiration for the award. It is made to the Club Member(s) who:

  • best represent the true spirit of Amateur Radio,
  • inspire others to promote and insure current and future success of the Radio Club of Tacoma and
  • has devoted tireless efforts in support of Club operations.

The Club maintains a Doc Spike Inspirational Award Plaque listing the names of recipients and the year they were awarded this honor.


This award may be made by the President annually to the person the President believes has contributed significantly to the mission and purposes of the Radio Club of Tacoma over the past year. Members may nominate candidates for consideration by the President.
