Saturday 12th May 2018 Pubs And Clubs On The Air PACOTA
RADARS will be taking part in the Pubs And Clubs On The Air (PACOTA) on Saturday 12th May 2018. The venue will be The Hopwood Arms, 753 Rochdale Rd, Middleton, Manchester M24 2RA. Chris Wiseman G0RDK, PACOTA event organiser says:- “The fairly recent wave of ‘OTA’ events, be it Summits, Museums, Railways, Churches, Mills, JOTA etc, seems to be a good way of spreading the word of Amateur Radio to the general public, and hopefully increasing our numbers”. The Hopwood Arms offers two car park areas, a large garden area, and it backs on to the canal with an open aspect in all directions. The landlord, Jimmy Watson, was friendly when I met him and keen to have us visit on the Saturday 12th May 2018. The Hopwood Arms also hosts the Mini Owners Club every third Monday, which is an indication that the pub is welcoming to clubs. For any member who finds themselves hungry, the menu is at:- http://www.hopwoodpub.co.uk/menu/
