The Anglo-Scottish Rally was held annually in the Tait Hall, Kelso until May 2000.
Held at the beginning of May each year, the event attracted many amateur radio enthusiasts from both sides of the border, and provided the opportunity for those domiciled further north to access equipment that would otherwise have entailed a much longer journey to the manufacturers and suppliers who supported the event.
Despite the numbers it attracted - entry to the main hall could be near impossible early in the day as it made a fair impersonation of the inside of a sardine tin) - and its popularity, it seems that the event simply fell victim to the burden of increasing costs imposed by the various legislations imposed when holding such events which are open to the general public.
Another victory, or victim, of "Health & Safety".
