National Club of the Year 2016

RSGB TrophiesOnce again, we are indebted to Waters and Stanton for their generous sponsorship of this competition.

Waters and StantonThis year, as last, we will be judging entries in two categories: clubs with fewer than 25 Members and clubs with 25 or more Members—during 2016—and there will be separate prizes for each category.

The theme of the competition is Promoting Amateur Radio, and the judges want to learn about the special events that your club has run and details of other outreach activity and initiatives that you have undertaken to promote our hobby.
