Hi Fellow Enthusiasts/Modellers

Announcement

A BIG vote of thanks to all members who took part in our 2021 OPEN DAY

Possibly our best yet despite Covid!!

Please make a note in your calendars

Bristol Ship Show - as noted in the diary this has been cancelled until 2nd April 2022.

Cancellation due to the death of Bernard McCall who was a founder member of this event together with his wife Doreen.

I have passed on condolences on behalf of CMS.

I believe the show in April will be marked as a Special Show in tribute to Bernard.

Cwmbran Boating Lake Access 

Llanyrafon Lake is back to normal use.

The Cafe is open as are the welfare facilities.

The Welsh Government Covid restrictions still apply. 

For 2021 shows and events please see the Diary of planned events

I am awaiting details of local club Open Days and will publish these as soon as available.

Wednesday sail times for club members has been reset to a 12.30 pm start.

I hope the information you find on our web pages will be of use to you, as we are a Modelling Club set up by its members for all of its members and members of the public to view our models at lakeside and to join in and enjoy our hobby activities. As the CMS is open to all sorts of Marine Craft (NO IC Engines allowed) we have a variation of models on display on the park lake waters and silt ponds,

Sunday Mornings and Wednesday afternoons, a variety of marine craft sailing on the surface and below it.

There is usually a lot of friendly banter being exchanged along with technical information at our informal meetings at lakeside.

The Open Day and Chair Competition that the club ran in 2019 allowing models to be entered irrespective of the amount of work each member had put into the completion of the model. This allowed every member the chance to enter a model or two. The emphases today in the society is not being on the member’s capability in the modelling making department as was in the past, but on the owners enjoyment of their own marine craft. Those that have no modelling experience have been helped along the way by other members with the required knowledge to help them. It’s nice today to see some of those modelling novices now handing on their knowledge they have picked up with their time with the club to the newer and some older club members. 

New on our WEB Pages

  • Update to Club Night Lists - Please note that Meetings now start at 7.00pm
  • New promotion page for Society Open Day event 
  • Extra page added to supply important information on forth coming events of interest to Society Members.
