McMichael Amateur Radio Rally and Car Boot Sale 2022

The McMichael Rally Committee was delighted to host the McMichael Rally at Reading RFC on Sunday 17 July 2022. Thank you to everyone who attended and we hope you had a great time.

The committee would like to place on record our thanks to all the helpers both from RADARC and Burnham Beeches who did an amazing job despite the heat. It was a pleasure to be there with you all.

Secondly, the Rugby Club – Gina arrived back from holiday the night before, and still got out of bed early to greet us and provide coffee and bacon butties!

Last but most certainly not least, all the sellers and buyers who turned up (perhaps yourself included), including the Berkshire Lowland Rescue who provided the essential first aid response without which we couldn’t open, the model tank display team and Stuart and his wonderful signals Land Rover. Thanks also to Tony with the infamous blue ATV van.

Harry provided us with some rather delicious and gratefully received ice creams!

Finally, at the rally an announcement was made in memory of Andy M5ALG and Graham G3XYX, they both loved the rally and I like to think they could be watching from above and would be pleased to hear their call signs issuing forth from the speaker horns as we are thankful to have known them and enjoyed their company and help over the years.

Thanks also to Martin Lynch & Sons, who kindly attended and also donated a great raffle prize allowing us to sell raffle tickets.

Thanks again everyone.
