A Fabulous Rally

We had a great time at this year's Blackpool Rally. This year it was held a month later than normal but was very well attended indeed. Our tables were very busy indeed and we managed to raise a good amount of money to pay for our repairs and other projects we have "on the go". Plenty of our members found time to help with the stewarding of the event and also to spend time behind our tables whilst other members were socialising or spending their hard earned cash. One of the star attractions was Ian's Begali Morse paddle which seemed to be the centre of attention. The Elecraft display was also much admired.
Everybody was very tired by mid afternoon but it was well worth it. For a couple of our members it was their first big radio rally and Faris was hardly able to walk under his weight of purchases!! Our thanks go to the organisers and everybody who made the day a great success!
