About the Convention

The GQRP Convention meets at the Rishworth School, on the A672 (Ripponden) road from junction 22 on the M62. The school at Rishworth have bent over backwards to help us transfer to their premises, and George G3RJV has organised the usual lecture stream. The speakers will deliver their talks in a purpose built lecture theatre, and we have an excellent range of speakers. Even the regular pie man has promised to serve the usual excellent fare.

Directions

Here is a map and here is another. The school is around 5 miles down the A672 towards Halifax, from junction 22 of the M62. The school post code is HX6 4QA. Don't think you have gone wrong when you are passing lots of sheep on the way - the school is at the start of civilisation - just past the second pub, and on the left side of the road, stood back from the road. The event remains exactly as it was in Rochdale - except in a new & larger venue.
