The IRTS 2015 AGM/SEARG RALLY organising committee are busy working away behind the scenes to make this event the best one ever had. As I said already we will need help on the morning of the rally and I know club members will not let the club down. If anyone has any ideas on the AGM/RALLY please let any of the event organising committee members know. We would love any input any club member might have.

John EI7IG received our plague last weekend at the IRTS AGM for the club winning the 2013 80m Counties Contest In The SSB Only Portable Section. The lads had a portable station running from Kells Priory in Kilkenny last June. Club member Alan EI3HDB picked up 1st place in the SSB Only Fixed section of the competition.
