Hi Fellow Enthusiasts/Members
As mentioned at the last meeting of the club, our subscriptions for 2018 are due in by June 2018. Should you still be in arrears please contact Pete Newsome or any of the officers who will be pleased to pass on your subscription to him.
On September 17th Peter Rutsch will give a talk on Adhesives.
Volunteers are invited to give further talks on boat related subjects. I know we as a club have a wealth of knowledge and experience wih all our members. I'm certain we will all benefit from any talk given.
Meeting 22nd May 2018 by 20 members, The part finished boat section was extremely well supported.
A suggestion has been made that there should be a part finished section at the open day. Another suggestion is we hold informal races at the lake on Sunday morning.
It has been agreed that a second open day be held at the boating lake possibly second saturday in April but subject to confirmation. This will be called The Ralph Davies Memorial Open Day and will be open to other invited clubs as with the present open day
Open Day 2018
This event was extremely well attended by us as well as by visiting clubs.
Possibly our best show yet well done everyone.
Our thanks to Margam Park, Sedgemoor and Cardiff Modellers for their support.
New videos by Brian & Sue our camera crew have been added to our Video Link Page
The AGM minutes have been uploaded to the Society Information Update Page
At the Club meetings, several ideas have been floated for the funding of our nominated charity, as our Club Boats are requiring an update of radio gear and as the Sunday sail times in the summer have been changed due to council boats being on the silt ponds, the window of their useful use has been reduced to less than an hour. It was decided to keep the have a go boats for our OPEN DAY use only. A collection box has been made for the Sparkle donations for club nights with good result to date.
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 Marine 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 club is open to all sorts of Marine Craft (NO IC Engines allowed) we have usually 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 Chairperson Competition that the club run this year allowing models to be entered irrespective of the amount of work each society member had put into the completion of their model. This allowed every member the chance to enter a model or two. The enfaces 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.
We have a new list of club members that have managed to pick up the Society's Trophies, Updated pictures taken of our Chair comp. Open Day Comp. have been added to our picture gallery, old pictures removed.
