Field Day 2021

The Committee decided that we should again enter Jock White National Field Day after a break in 2020.  This was a relaxed affair.   Malcolm ZL2UDF organised the use of Kaiwharawhara Park (accessed off the Hutt Road) from Wellington City Council. This site was used in the 1990s by the club, before we moved to Athletic Park (no more) and then to Quartz Hill.

We secured the venue from 1pm on Saturday to 1pm on Sunday. John ZL2XJ organised equipment and set up/close down. Six members turned out.
