KARG Members met last Saturday at the Manor West Retail Park upstairs Cafe for their October monthly meeting. The meeting was well attended by members. The recent trip to the Irish Coastguard Radio Station at Valentia was discussed, where members had a fantastic day. Much thanks goes to the members of the ICG service for allowing KARG the opportunity to visit, and for showing us the operational side if the station. It was certainly a day to remember.

As discussed at the September KARG meeting, the KARG raffle for a Baofeng UV-5R handheld UHF/VHF transceiver is underway, with members showing very good participation already. If you haven't already purchased a ticket or tickets, then the next KARG meeting will be your last opportunity.

The next KARG meeting will be a week later than usual, and will occur on Saturday 5th December, at 12 noon, at the Muckross House Garden Cafe/Restaurant. This meeting will also double as the KARG Christmas lunch. It is hoped that as many members as possible will attend this lunch meeting, where we will draw the winner of the raffle for the Baofeng UV-5R HT.

At this lunch meeting, we are also giving members the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets to win a 2016 paid sub for KARG. It will follow the same process as the current raffle, and the winner will be drawn at the KARG AGM in Jan or Feb 2016.

Ideas for 2016 events were also discussed, and it is hoped to finalise firm plans by the first KARG meeting of 2016.

As always we welcome new members or visitors to the club at any time. Even if you are not sure, you should come along and find out more about what we do, and who we are.

As always, we will remind members in advance via group text regarding the Christmas dinner meeting.
