Essex Skills Night - Feb-2019
Monday evening, 7pm February 18th 2019, was Essex Skills Night, run and hosted by the CARS Training Team. It also happened to be FA-Cup night for Chelsea vs Man-Utd (0-2). Despite that and a cold evening there were plenty of attendees who could choose from skills / demos to socialising and refreshments (inc nice cake!), along with a mini tabletop sale, raffle and quiz (whilst Exam Session EX7 was also running nearby). It does not matter whether you are a club member, or from other clubs, not licensed, or just interested - All are Welcome, and it is Free!
Greeters and Arrivals
- Free Raffle: A free ticket was given to everyone who signed in at the door. The raffle prize is a Bird box made by Peter M0PSD - one of a series of original designs!
Raffle winner and prize!
- Essex CW: Dean G4WQI and the team were there to help anyone who may be interested in learning Morse.
CW is always a popular attraction

Refreshments - as always were on offer, thanks to our team in the kitchen. One maybe surprised, by Tracey's Famous Cream Cakes! Please donate - Donations are gratefully received to help cover the room hire.
Training/Practicals - Please note that anyone wishing to take Practicals for Intermediate and Foundation can be signed off at CARS. Online Exams are now also available for anyone (inc from any club) who wish to use the facility and a wide selection of dates are available. Please enquire to the Training Manager - Peter Davies M0PSD 07747-130777 or ask on any Skills Night
Do come and tell us what you would like to see at Skills Night...
We are here to help, you ask what you need to know.
NO question is silly question!. We have all been there, just ask?
Skills does not happen by itself, so we are open to offers for demos etc from both CARS members and other clubs/amateurs.
If you want a table for a demo do email us beforehand and we will fit you in.
Skills is a great opportunity to get "hands-on" with aerials, datamodes, construction, our famous Quiz and more. A variety of "show and tell" tables with something for the new and experienced Ham alike.
As always, various members of CARS, and other local groups/clubs will be on hand to help with questions, as well as volunteers in the kitchen doing the tea/coffee and nibbles.
Next Event: Monday 18-Mar-2019
