The racing season isn't finalized until the yearly banquet is held with a great time for all. This year "President" John Mazzorana moved the dinner banquet to Pompei Ristorante, Hempstead NY. A four star catering and banquet facility with the club filling themselves on a five course meal throughout the evening; from appetizers to cake it was delicious. John Mazzorana had a table full of awards, envelopes filled with checks and as a host he managed to keep everyone's attention with his lively comments and his never ending upbeat attitude about the club and it's future which is bright. Although the night called for another of the weatherman's "Super Snow Storms of the Century" which of course didn't happen may have kept some of the members away; we still had 89 well dressed, well fed and slightly inebriated members bench racing and just having fun and looking forward to this years competition.
