Essex Skills Night - Jun-2018
Monday evening, 7pm June 18th 2018, was Essex Skills Night, run and hosted by the CARS Training Team.
Due to some re-scheduling issues at our other venue, the June Skills Night coincided with our tabletop sale next door in the main hall - and Englands first World Cup match (won 2-1 vs Tunisia.)
On arrival everyone was presented with a free raffle ticket as advertised and directed initially into the Small hall by Pauline for the Skills Night activities, the tickets were used later in the evening by Chairman Peter M0PSD to choose a winner for the spectacular £50 pound note raffle prize. The lucky recipient being CARS member Dave Bowell ex G3JCM.
- Practicals - an early start before the main events had training practicals in the rear Hawkins Room
- Displays - Skills in the small hall include two Rolling Powerpoint slide shows - click the PDF icons for a full set
- Skills Photos Recent highlights:-
Display-1 had some recent Essex Skills Night Photo Highlights
- Quick Fun Quiz - with some topical questions and a great anagram - "No Iota Fund"
Display-2 had our latest Fun Quiz
- Radio - Some Intermediate Course demos were on display. There was also a request to bring your Hand Helds and talk to others about what you need to know.
- Socialising - There was a greater emphasis on the Social Event aspect this month. Some extra tables to sit down and natter - and our thanks to kitchen team who had put on some excellent refreshments. (and then there was the free £50 prize raffle...)
Excellent Refreshments including Quiche and Cakes!
Do come and tell us what you would like to see at Skills Night...
We are here to help, you ask what you need to know.
NO question is silly question!. We have all been there, just ask?
Skills does not happen by itself, so we are open to offers for demos etc from both CARS members and other clubs/amateurs.
If you want a table for a demo do email us beforehand and we will fit you in.
Skills is a great opportunity to get "hands-on" with aerials, datamodes, construction, our famous Quiz and more. A variety of "show and tell" tables with something for the new and experienced Ham alike.
As always, various members of CARS, and other local groups/clubs will be on hand to help with questions, as well as volunteers in the kitchen doing the tea/coffee and nibbles.
Next Event: Monday 17-Sep-2018
Venue: Danbury Village Hall, CM3 4NQ
