Club Secretary Linda G0AJJ said “Thank you to all the members who helped with the station or visited over the weekend. I’m particularly grateful to Parsley and Donna who towed the caravan over and returned it after the event and also provided the data station for the weekend.

Some members were unfortunately struck down with illness before the event, but the Club were able to operate all weekend. Adam 2E0OWX had Data station as well, running Fldigi on a Raspberry Pi2 which was very interesting and opens up all sorts of future possibilities for the future.

“The weather was a bit disappointing and we had a very spectacular storm on Saturday evening with lightning and thunder and heavy rain, however we had enjoyed a very nice meal and a drink at the local pub before the storm hit us.

“Sunday afternoon was better with more visitors and time to have a wander around the exhibits. The central arena of the Museum had a nice display of vintage tractors and a very popular Robot Wars stand.

Of course Sunday was Fathers Day and the queue of dads waiting to play was never ending and the children didn’t get much of a look in! There were also some huge pieces of modern farm machinery.”

“Overall it was a great weekend out”
