The annual CARA Constructors’ Exhibition took place on Thursday 20th March. A primary aim of the meeting is to demonstrate that home construction, or “home-brew” if you like, is alive and well in the Cheltenham area. This is certainly true as there was a massive turnout of projects, many of a very high standard.
Two trophies were presented: The Bill Brown G5BK Cup for the “Best in Show” and the Pat Moore G3IKR Memorial Cup for “Innovative Construction”. Judges this year were Bob, M0NQN, and Jon, M0JMM.
Here’s some of what was put on show…
The winner for “Best in show” went to Colin, G3TA, for his Morse key constructed from scrap metal.
The prize for “Innovative Construction” went to Andy, M0JLY, for his magnetic loop made with under soil heating pipe.
