SARTS Meeting Oct 2016

This month’s meeting was held a the usual QTH.

There was going to be an auction of ham items from the estate of an SK. Some bids had already arrived by email, but the rules required the hammer to fall at the meeting. Therefore, the hams who really wanted to win the a particular item were definitely present at the meeting.  afc03080

The majority of items were presented for auction as pictures only. The winners would have to settle first before collection. All proceeds were to be handed to the XYL. SARTS does not take any profit.afc03092
