The award was presented this year by Hamilton Amateur Radio Club Inc, and followed their theme for the previous 2010 award, associated with the Historical Places Trust, with points awarded for contacts to/from Category II Historical Places.
Once again the award followed the very successful model of the Wellington VHF Group Inc.
Update: 1 Feb: End door is now working and bathroom door is able to be opened and closed: Thanks Bruce ZL2ABC.
More progress on the fence, with much of the old barbed wire removed and the grounds cleared and mown. Looking in the gate it looks like a tidy garden area. All wood, wire, concrete, rubbish and debris have moved to the pile near the gate (out of sight) and it is looking repectable.
Progress is being made on the plumbing system and the tank will be installed very soon. The old tank is planned to be put back into use at a lower level.
We have a keen core that are going up the hill this Saturday. We are meeting at the gate at 11am.
Please ensure you have suitable clothing, something to eat and drink and a hat for sun or rain!
There is a jug and hot plate there to heat up your lunch and we will have the supper box there with tea and coffee.
The plan is to be down the hill at 3 or 4pm. (We have a couple of vehicles so can adjust to suit people on the day).
If you are keen to join us please text John on oh two one seven 10 102.
