Champions and rookies of the year from the 2002 race season will be honored during the Saturday, Nov. 30 banquet at the Marriott Hotel in Des Moines, Iowa. The Marriott was also the site for I.M.C.A.Õs na-tional banquet in 1994. I.M.C.A.Õs national ban-quet was last held in Des Moines in 1995, moving from the Marriott to The Inn at University. The annual soiree was in Kan-sas City, Mo., the next year and had been held at Har-veyÕs Hotel and Casino in Council Bluffs since 1997. ÒThe facilities are first-rate and the Marriott staff has been very accommo-dating,Ó I.M.C.A. President Kathy Root said. Reservations can be made by calling the Marri-ott at (800) 228-9290 or (515) 245-5500 and asking for the I.M.C.A. group rate.
