Web CMS New Year Heading for web Pages
These web pages have been updated on 18th January 2018
At our Home waters in Cwmbran, ALL are WELCOME to come along and enjoy the Marine Models on the water and join in with the members friendly banter.
Hi Fellow Enthu'siasts
Well as I catch up with the society news for you,
First may I wish you all a Happy New Year and yes fine weather to enjoy your modelling activities.
December is a bit of a low for club activities as we have no club meeting and as fine weather tends to be a bit more of a hit and a miss for activities at the lake on Sundays and Wednesdays, hence no web page updates. All be it club members with Email address logged on their application files have had club updates issued to them over the December/January period.
After making the statement above it would appear from grape vine reports that club members turned out for the last Sunday club sail of 2017 and yes the first Sunday club sail 2018 had around 15 members present. The second Sunday club sail was also well supported by the club members with probably more members present alas the morning turned very cold for those that turned up.
Our Treasurer, Len Cotterill, of the last few years will be standing down at or next AGM in February, we the club membership wish him all the best with his health issues.
Photo's of model marine craft for 2017 comp. added to gallery, 2016 removed. A date for next open day has been proposed for 9th September, will require club members to ratify this. The Presentation members that won the top awards, the web page has been updated with their names. As reported to me, whoops, the members present on the night forgot to take photographs of the occasion.
A list of proposed activities for 2018 has been updated as far as information is available. Will try and obtain information and update page on other club open days as they become available.
January has turned out to be a sad month for the Society as we report the death of one of our long serving members
Jim Mclean passed away earlier this month.
Funeral will take place on 1st February, 11.30am
@ Langstone Crematorium, Newport.

AGM Agenda attached to the Society Information Update Page
Evening Sail for lights on boats set for Wednesday 21st & 28th February 2018
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.
