2022 Rally – 30th October 2022

The Galashiels and District Amateur Radio Society Rally and Open Day was held on Sunday 30th October 2022 at the Volunteer Hall, St John Street, Galashiels.

A successful day, over 200 visitors through the doors, 17 traders taking tables, and many items sold through the Bring & Buy.

Welcome back to the many familiar faces seen once again after the last few years of COVID restrictions, and some new faces too.

Thankfully the weather stayed dry during the unloading of traders vehicles and setting up, with some heavy showers just after lunchtime.

Traders attended:
Alan Clegg
Mirfield Electronics
Canny Components
Scottish Borders Repeater Group
G-QRP Club
Mick Hunter
Perth Repeater Group
Tony Kruszelnicki from Lincoln
Gerald Prior
Michael Wills G0TNF
Dave Bagshaw
Dundee ARC
Fraser Williamson MM0HCD

Heavy rain shower just around lunchtime. Thankfully not at the start when we had queues of people waiting outside, or while traders were trying to load/unload their stuff.
Empty hall with just some boxes left on the floor waiting to be loaded onto vehicles and taken back home.

And then it’s all over! Tables emptied, visitors and traders heading back home.

Many thanks to all club members who came along to help setting up and to help out while others had a look around the hall. Thanks to the traders for setting up a display of products for everyone to come to, the caterers for food and drinks, and thanks to all those who came from far and wide to see our rally and again making it a successful day.

Hope to see you all next year!

Winding back the years…

Here are a collection of photographs taken by club members past and present. I’ve tried to keep then in more or less chronological order. Some of the dates have been estimated. If anyone can identify the year, and add any relevant comments/stories/anecdotes, then feel free to email them to me and I’ll add them in!

1980s and early 1990s
