The Rally will, again, be at the Hugh Ripley Hall, Ripon HG4 2PT on Sunday 21st April 2013. More info about traders will be released as they are confirmed but feel free to check out our website from time to time for more details.

Ripon and District ARS is celebrating a 100% pass rate for the Intermediate exams held on 15th March. After following a course of training for the last few of months at the club the candidates sat the exam and then waited anxiously for the results. Lead instructor Lee M0LMH did his best impression of an X-Factor judge by stringing out the suspense but was pleased to announce that they had all passed. Well done everyone!
