Christmas Dinner brings an end to 2016

WARC has no formal meeting in December, but a Christmas dinner function was held on Wednesday 07 December.   The venue was the same as the previous two years: Evans Bay Yacht and Motorboat Club; 6.30pm for 7pm meal.

There was a similar turnout to the previous year (18 members and XYLs).  The food may not have been to quite the same standard, but we enjoyed the evening and celebrated another year.

RemoteDX Inc

A meeting was held on Thursday 17 November 2016, at the Tawa Community Hall at 7.30pm (thanks to VHF Group for facilitating this), to establish RemoteDX Inc.

A total of 19 amateur operators, representing all local clubs, attended and became foundation signatories and members of the new society.   There is free membership for the first 12 months.

See the RemoteDX website for further information.

Summer BBQ with XYLs

Out came the steaks, chops, chicken kebabs, salads, and cake at the annual summer BBQ at the QTH of club chairman, Mike ZL1AXG, on 20 January 2016.  Attendance was similar to previous years, but several XYLs came along for the first time.

Please note that the February and March meetings are on the 3rd Tuesday, NOT on the Wednesday as per usual.

Christmas Dinner

A total of 23 people were paid up to attend the 2015 Christmas Dinner (including a number of  XYLs) held on Wednesday 9 December at the Evans Bay Yacht Club. Four people were, in the event, unable to attend, but those who turned up had an enjoyable time of socialising and feasting on the traditional “ham” main course and wonderful cream puffs for dessert.  Mike ZL1AXG welcomed everybody and gave a few updates.  He provided a “soft” sell on the mesh kitset (including cabling, Wifi Access point and phones) available for purchase through John ZL2HD and himself!   John suggested that we shouldn’t make Christmas too commercial, so no profits are being made – just a small contribution from every sale goes to mesh infrastructure around the region.
