The Surplus Equipment Sale on 27th April was well attended by club members and other amateurs from around the county. With over 120 lots, there were many bargains to be had (see all those goody bags in the photos); I bought a Crock Pot. Ian G4EVK our Chairman and Rob 2E0FTJ assisted our resident auctioneer Bob G7AVU by finding the items for sale and Roger G3PVU, Treasurer and Steve M5ZZZ, Activity Officer happily accepted payments and paid out at the end of the sale. Refreshments were served and photos taken by G4STO. Our next Surplus Equipment Sale will be held on Wednesday 26th October 2016.
Lincoln Short Wave Club is hoping to run another Foundation Course in the near future. A date hasn’t been fixed yet but we hope it will start in the next few weeks. If you are interested please contact Pam Rose G4STO LSWC and Examinations Secretary via the contact tag above.
A very successful evening was had when 13+ 1st Willingham Cubs invaded the shack in order to have experience passing greetings messages on to other radio amateurs; this will go towards their Communications Badge.
We had planned on making contact with the Cherry Willingham Group but encountered a few problems so we fell back to our stand-by stations that helped to make the evening the success it was.
A BIG ‘thank you’ to Peter G1FLL and Ian G4XFC for putting on the station at Cherry Willingham; sorry it didn’t work out as planned: to Andy M0KED and Geoff 2E0YBG for being at home ready to speak to the cubs and to Simon 2E0DXE who put on the station for the cubs at the shack!! Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. An even bigger thank you to Wockhardt UK Ltd for the Paracetamol (being in the shack with 13+ cubs seeing who could shout the loudest isn’t the most tranquil of places to be!!!!)
