  What's new for the Tall Trees?  
 
Here you can find things of both trivia and importance to club members. If you are a member and have something that you'd like the rest of the club, and possibly the rest of the world, to know about then let the webmaster know so we can publish it here. 
 

December 2012 
  We are delighted to report that Jimmy, 2E0EYP has now passed the Advanced exam for his full licence.  Congratulations to Mike Zero Hotel Golf Yankee !  
     
  Congratulations and commiserations too, for Brian, G3UJE whose individual entry into the 2012 CQ WW 160 CW contest which occured in January has resulted in runner-up position, narrowly beaten by M5O who scored fewer QSOs, but more multipliers.  2013's event soon comes up, so we wish the best of luck to Brian in that.  
     
  February 2013  
  The club held its AGM this month, and is glad to report that we achieved 100% attendance- the whole group turned up!

Thanks were made to Jim, G3VDB who has served the club as Treasurer for the past 3 years. Gerry M0VAA has agreed and was duly elected to take over the task.

Tom, M1EYP was appointed as Contest Manager.

A full set of minutes is available from the Club Secretary.

  The Tall Trees won the 2014 80m Club Championships (Local Club Section) RSGB Contest for the first, but hopefully not the last time, and as a consequence were awarded the G5RV Trophy. Several members were in attendance to participate in the award presentation made to the club's chairman G3KAF. See picture below:-

  November 2016
It was with great regret that we lost Phil G8WUY from our small group. He bacame a silent key on November 4th. Phil was a popular visitor at our meetings and despite fighting an illness over many months he still managed to get on the air occasionally and contributed to our competition events. He will be sadly missed by the entire club.

Tall Trees were runners-up in the 80m Club Championship.
 
  December 2019
The first year of the RSGB's regular FMAC contests resulted in third place on 70cm- the highest position we've ever achieved on that band. We also finished 4th in the overall UKAC placings which is the best we've ever done. Tall Trees were runners-up in the 80m Club Championship.
 
  Summer 2020
Our club meetings were largely cancelled or held over the air in limited form due to Covid restrictions, but Ian G0XBU was welcomed as a new member. 
December 2020 Tall Trees were 80m Club Championship runners-up for 4th time in the past five years, making it six occasions in all.  We were also 3rd in the AFS Superleague; our first podium finish in that contest since the series was introduced.
 
  Summer 2021
Meetings at the Egerton arms recommenced during the later months, including our belated AGM, and Robin M7AQX was welcomed as a new member.
 
  February 2022
Tall Trees come 3rd in the 2021/22 AFS Superleague, thus finishing in the top three for only the second time in the club's history.
