Change of Arrangements for Radio Club Christmas Party

The Radio club Christmas Party was originally going to be held this coming Wednesday (15th December) in Hudswell Village Hall, and the room had been booked.

However, with the number of COVID cases escalating, and the new Omicron variant in circulation, it has been decided that the meeting will not take place in person, and will instead be held via. Zoom. The meeting will take place at the usual time of 19:30 on Wednesday 15th December.

Dave, G8YPN, will still be running the Christmas Quiz. Everyone is also asked to bring along something radio-related, to show to members and talk briefly about for a few minutes. Unfortunately, the virtual nature of the meeting does mean you’ll have to provide your own drinks and mince pies this year.

Upcoming Meetings

The Club’s Christmas meeting will be on Wednesday 15th December, and this will be a new idea for a meeting. You are asked to bring something interesting along connected with radio, and tell us a bit about it. Maybe bring a rig along, maybe a QSL card, maybe something else that’s a little more unusual. There will also be the usual mince pies available.

Going forward into next year, the club will continue to meet on the first and third Wednesday of each month, with a break in August, when many of our members are away. Wherever possible, we’ll try to arrange some sort of talk or event for the third Wednesday of each month, whilst the first Wednesday will be more of a casual meet up, chat, and “on the air” night. The meetings page has been updated accordingly, and will be amended as we start booking in events for 2022.

After the last 18 months, the committee is trying hard to get the club up and running and back up to strength again, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
