As Larry suggested......A new thread for the Blackpool Show

We were supposed to be going in the Club Coach this year, but it seems to be missing from the Club Diary at the moment

To save me the trouble.......When is it, chaps?

This was our coach for the Warwick Show, last year

Look at the Reg No........It was England's Football Team coach for 1960

Nothing but the best for the Etherow Club

Hi Guys , From what is being said on Mayhem the show sounds like it is going to be a big event with loads of trade support including some new traders.

Sorry Dave.......Not going to the Blackpool Show this year after all

The coach trip has been cancelled due to lack of support

Perhaps next year

Sigh of the times Bob and the reason why show attendances continue to drop.

Thanks Dave

Colin.......I think you are correct there about the poor show attendances

I noticed this at Ellesmere and Haydock, this year

What with no Model Shops anymore.......We don`t want to loose the shows as well

We are the reason behind the closure of model shops and the downturn in show attendance so before we start bemoaning the loss of these facilities we should take a long hard look at where we actually buy our bits from.

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.
