Dolphin Model Boat Club is based in Orpington, Kent. Our 2020 programme commences in January with the first of our Winter Workshops where members can display their latest part built creations, also discuss build problems and techniques etc. Then from April to October there will be twelve pond meetings, mainly on a Sunday morning, but including two Saturday afternoon/evening events which allow members to display models which are fitted with lights. Two of our pond meetings are Charity Days with one supporting the RNLI and the other supporting AAKSS which is the local air ambulance. Due to popular demand we will finish the year with two additional Winter Workshops, one incorporating the AGM. Our membership numbers remain stable and we have gained some new members following a big push to promote our pond meetings which we advertise free of charge in two magazines distributed in the local area. This increase in spectators has resulted in us adding a document to our website entitled “Model Boats – Getting Started”. Many parents and/or grand-parents are looking to encourage the younger generation away from the TV and the Xbox, so hopefully the world of Model Boats will fulfil that requirement.

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
