The name of the gane on htis event is FUN AND EVEN MORE FUN
 
Where else can you come and sail anyboat whatsoever from an IC to a sedate clipper in shuch specatcular scienery and better than that there is NO addmission charge I repeat it is FREE.
No show in the UK can compare to this one as they all charge addmission even hte traders get in free(now thats a first) 
 
There is FREE camping whether you have a caravn or tent yes even thats FREE.
 
Right then without the cooperation of the Padarn Country Park wardens and his staff this evnt would not take place so if you see him in his land rover just say thanks it goes a VERY long way
 
Special mnetion must also be given to the GWynedd Model and Yaught group without their cooperation it would be impossible for this event to proceed
 
Now whats stopping you commign along for a weekend of sheer bliss,there is even a night sail on sat night and a barbi....bring your own food sorry but thats nto FREE But the cooking is !!!!!!!!!!!!! Well need anything cremating,oops meant cooking ,well a can of Bodingtons goes down my throat ever so smoothly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
 
Serriously though the only rules are as follows
 
ALL IC TO HAVE A FAILSAFE FITTED AND SILENCED IT WILL BE CHECKED BY AN OFFICIAL AND PASSED TO BE SAFE
 
IF YOUR VESSEL GETS INOT TROUBLE NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO USE THE RESCUE BOAT ONLY MYSELF OR PHIL
 
IF USING A DISBOSABLE BARBI PLACE ON SOME SLATE AND NOT ON THE GRASS
AND EXTINGUSHED AFTER USE.....THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.IF IT IS STILL LIT AND YOU HAVE GONE OT BED AND i HAPPEN TO BE ON A WALKABOTU YOU SORRY TO SAY THIS BUT WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE THERE AND THEN
 
NO ONE TO CLIMB DOWN THE SLATE WASTE TIP TO RESUE THEIR VESSEL IT IS FAR TO DANGEROUS
 
UES THE LITTER BINS AS PROVIDED
 
 
THOSE are the only rules simple isnt it
 
 
oh one other important rule
 
 
 
HAVE FUN FUN FUN AND EVEN MORE FUN

"Sorry but some people just ask for it" !!
 
How CHildish is that , really makes this forum look good !!
 
Dave has asked a simple question and despite some errors in the text was quite read-able..
 
The event is being held in a great location , and was a dam good weekend last year. This is the sort of event people are crying out for but all you can do is take the preverbal !!
 
Hope you all feel better Now..

Make your own contribution to the Website

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
