G3WOS's 2013 50MHz BBQ
Update: 9th May 2013
See the photos from the 2004 BBQ, 2005 BBQ and 2011 BBQs
After the great success of all the previous 6M BBQs, I am holding another on Saturday 3rd August 2013 in Farnborough, Hampshire UK - so make a note in your diary!
Take a look at the 2005 BBQ web site if you want to see what it’s all about. As we have always had a good number of non-UK 6m hams attend, I am sending this now so that you can plan your summer around the event by visiting the UK!
[Click on the picture for the GIANT version].
There will be plenty of food and drink, lots of 6m guys to talk to and argue with and XYLs are positively encouraged! I hope that we will see an even better turn out of non-UK 6m enthusiasts. For those wanting to stay over on Friday night, many will be able to stay in the same hotel (The Falcon as in 2011) and I will organise another great 6m dinner for the Friday evening!
There will be several interesting talks to help pass the long hot summer day...
The cost of the BBQ is not yet known but will be around 35 UK Pounds and will need to be paid in advance of the event.
I know it's a long way off, but if you are interested in attending PLEASE send me an email stating your level of interest. If I don't hear from you then I could assume there is no interest!
73 Chris G3WOS -
Traditional BBQ this year!
We've decided to go for a traditional BBQ this year with rib eye steaks, beef burgers and beef sausages. Plus lots of salads and homemade sweets! Vegetarian catered for with notice.
Friday night 6M DXers’ dinner
If you have attended before, you will know that we hold a dinner on the Friday evening starting at 19:00. The restaurant is next door to the hotel so there are no driving problems to worry about.
Gurkha Palace restaurant
Please let me know as soon as you are able if you are staying at the Falcon Hotel and PLEASE let me know if wish to attend the Friday night 6M DXers dinner as I need to make a reservation at the restaurant and need to know the number of people attending.
UKSMG 2013 AGM
This is some advance notice for this year's AGM which has a change of venue. In order to offer a rare chance to several of our overseas members to attend the AGM this year, it will take place in advance of the BBQ held by Chris G3WOS in August. The location will be the Gurkha Palace restaurant in Farnborough on Saturday 6th August starting at 10 a.m.
For those members already attending the BBQ and staying at the Falcon Hotel, the restaurant is just a few yards from the hotel. More detail will be available closer to the date and, of course, in the next issue of Six News.
