Here are photos of the CTARC's End of Year meeting, held at the clubhouse on 26 November 2016:

Solar powered, too! Provided music all afternoon

Various items were on display for swop or purchase...

Karl / ZS1KC brought some bits & pieces to the Swop Shop too

These guys had the staying power to make it through to the end!
