WADARC Presentation & Awards Evening 2009


Our annual Hot Pot, Presentations and Awards evening took place on Wed 14th October.  Once again there were only two entries for the construction contest, but that did not mean it was an easy decision for the Judges .. seen below studying the assessment criteria !

Gary 2E0LGZ and Bill M1ARH

The standard was extremely high, and to begin the evening both members introduced their entries and finished with questions from the audience.

The Constructors and their entries

As is now traditional, a superb Hot Pot was served just after 9pm which had been prepared during the day by Laura M3ELV, Eric G6HWD and XYL Pat, and seen below being thanked by Gordon G8MMM our Chairman.

Laura M3ELV was awarded the prestigious 10th Anniversary Trophy for "Services to the Club" by a non committee member.  During a most difficult year Laura announced she wished to continue looking after the Club's interest at NARSA which her husband Chris had done before he sadly went silent key.  Laura is also an extremely valuable contributor at many of the Club social events.

Finally, thanks to Gordon G8MMM, for hosting a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
