The pictures below show members of the club preparing the village hall for our Christmas Dinner which was held on 14th December. Thanks to Peter and Carolyn Kendal and Peter and Sue Gray who got the hall ready and Steve Burke who got the tree; you see, it doesn’t just happen by itself!!! Unfortunately the lights were turned off and it was too dark to take photos so I have no pictures of members that attended the dinner. Wisby Family Butchers from Wragby provided the outside catering.
Gerry after being presented with Honorary Life Membership
William (Gerry) Duffner, G6KGG, sadly became a silent key on the afternoon of 10th December 2016. Gerry was a honorary life member of Lincoln Short Wave Club where he had been a member since June 1992 (24 years) when we met at the City Engineers Club in Lincoln.
Until his illness, Gerry had been on the committee of the club for many years and was the Examination Secretary and an Instructor for the Foundation and Intermediate Courses.
When moving to Aisthorpe in 2008 Gerry was there helping in some way of other and could always be found helping at Special Event Stations and Contests.
Gerry will be sadly missed by all those at Lincoln Short Wave Club and by many others with whom he came into contact. R.I.P.
It was all hands on path this morning clearing leaves outside the shack; Ken G3NIC and Peter G1FLL brought leaf vacs, I took a yard brush and shovel (for others to use!!). Joe 2E0ECF and Geoff 2E0YBG used the brush and shovel very professionally and Les G1LQB cleared a way for Peter and his vacuum. Ken worked single handed at the west end of the shack! An excellent job was done by all including Art (he helped throw some junk away from the end of the shack) who only joined the club this morning; does he realise what he has let himself in for? Andy M0KED also helped by taking photos as my camera is in Cheltenham!!
