COVID-19 / Coronavirus

April 8th, 2020 by gdars

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, following general advice from government, weekly Wednesday night club meetings have been suspended as of 18th March 2020. Also the Focus Centre has been closed along with all Live Borders facilities until further notice.

Members can still keep in contact through the GDARS Yahoo Group email or on local 2m and 70cm repeaters GB3SB, GB3HK, GB3DU, GB3LB, GB3BT, GB3BE.

While there is no information on when social distancing rules will be relaxed and events such as ours can take place again, the 2020 Rally and Open Day is still scheduled to go ahead on 25th October. Any changes or further confirmation will be published closer to that date.
