Summer Lunchtime BBQ with XYLs

On 17 January we gathered at Mike ZL1AXG’s QTH from 12 noon for a summer lunchtime BBQ. XYLs and family members were invited.

It turned out to be excellent weather. We were able to share stories of summer adventures (particularly the acquisition of new radio gear from a Christmas estate sale) and chat about the club’s future with the upcoming Hamcram.

Combined Branches BBQ – Saturday 29 January 2022

Rather than have our own Branch 50 NZART BBQ this year, the committee decided to join with Branch 74 (Wellington VHF Group) and Branch 69 (Kapiti Branch) at their Combined Branches BBQ.

The Combined BBQ  was held at QE2 Park, Paekakariki on Sat 29th Jan  from 1200pm onwards.    Mike ZL1AXG and Frank ZL2TTS attended the BBQ. There were 14 amateurs and XYLs in attendance.

January BBQ at QTH of ZL1AXG

We actually had a summer BBQ this year (on Wednesday 17 January) – unlike last year.   Not many YLs, but there was a good turn out of OMs. including a couple under 15.  The rain arrived about 8.10pm and we headed indoors.  Mike ZL1AXG demonstrated his new uBITx and key features.
