AGM Minutes

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.
