SARCFEST 2016 – a fine day out
The club hamfest is over. A good turnout, a guesstimated 80 people attended on a mild sunny day. The weather forecast was spot on, with some overnight light rain and winds abating before dawn. A lot of catching upwas done and heaps of equipment and parts changing hands, particularly in the club sales where some terrific bargain were had. The canteen crew did a great job supplying tasty and healthy food and beverages. The doors finally closed about 1530 hrs. a big thank you to all those who attended and especially to the crew who did all the work to set things up.

SUCCESSFUL LIGHTHOUSE ACTIVATIONS
SARC members were among the teams who activated 3 far-north coast lighthouses for the annual Lighthouse and Lightship weekend, at Cape Byron, Ballina and Yamba. Pic shows the group at Ballina light (AU0001) , on the north side of the Richmond River entrance (built 1879) with HF mast (left) and UHF/VHF (right).
The clubhouse kitchen is back in working order, with a new window making it much lighter and brighter. Overall its neater with a more spacious feel despite the size being exactly the same. The next stage is to get hot water available, possibly a solar system. Also the toilet has been upgraded, all welcome to ‘inspect the plumbing’.
