Several members of Branch 50 NZART travelled up to Wanganui on 27 March to visit the Wanganui Vintage Radio Museum that was established by Graham, ZL2AHR and his XYL Val, ZL2FO. Ian ZL2AM from Fielding, also joined us as he is heavily involved in the museum’s operations.
The team of Graham, Val and Ian then reciprocated in attending our informal social group meeting on 25 May 2021. We invited all Branch 50 members and their XYLs to attend and the afternoon tea was very well attended. The enhanced afternoon tea supported by club funds was well received. The social group meets every fourth Tuesday from 1.30pm to 3.30pm at George ZL2AG’s QTH at 14 Vasanta Avenue, Ngaio.
July’s “Chat ‘n Chew” meeting was an excellent night all round, despite the weather. Check the club meeting minutes for details. (The saussie rolls must have gone fast; none there when I looked!)
The August meeting, on Wednesday 20 August 2014, is an early-start (7pm) “Home and Away” event: the club will be doing a show ‘n’ tell at the Newlands Marae (Nga Hau E Wha O Papararangi, in Ladbrooke Road, Newlands) . Members who cannot make it are invited to come on-air about 7.30pm — 7050 LSB — and provide some input for our guests to be suitably impressed by. Glenn ZL2KZ will be picking up passengers at the Lutheran Church Hall, King St, Newtown, at 6.30pm; let him know if you need a lift.
