This is a shout out to ALL clubs in the South Wales area .Are you like me FED UP with all the good shows going on in England !! Well i for one am fed up of it , this is no way a smear on our English neighbours by no means , But as our nation is steeped in maratime history from the Romans sailing up the usk to make Caerleon and Captain Robert Falcon Scott sailing into the frozen pages of history to Swansea smelting copper for nelsons ships and many other smaller ports in south wales shaping British history .So com,e on everyone lets get our collective heads together and put South Wales back on the boat show map ,It's not like we have'nt got the room to put on a show .We have done this in the past so lets do it again in the future .Lets get together and sort this out with suggestions on venues etc .I live in central cardiff sop i am biased and would like to see a show in cardiff BUT would equaly be up to holding it else where , perhaps the Knapp in Barry an excellent strech of water ,Swansea has the Marina and an excellent museum .So come on guys and girls of course lets all put our collective heads together and sort something out for next year possibly june,july or august .Lets hear some voices on this

Not too long ago Swansea Maritime Museum held the International Swansea Marine Model Festival. A DVD was released (in 2004) covering the second of these festivals and the museum's curator at the end of the DVD indicated there was to be a third festival, whether this happened, I don't know.
The event looked well attended and publicised, so no reason why you shouldn't gain support for an event in Wales.
I don't think the problem is just in Wales, as a recent thread covering the subject "Long Term Future of Shows" was featured on Martin Davis's Model Boat Mayhem site.

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.
In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.
The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!
I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
Colin Bishop - Website Editor
