Just to say I have beem a bit quiet on this for a while as there was a small problem with algae on the lake, and we were worried we might have to cancel. Good news after meeting with the Park Warden today all is well and the event is all go go go.
We will be doing a night sail on the small lagoon on the Saturday night, either during the BBQ, after the BBQ or even with the BBQ, so fit lights !!!!.
There will be 230 v for battery charging during the day (plus of course the various traders who will be more than happy to sell you more)
Of course if you plan to arrive on the Friday, you can night sail then as well.
I wil be posting an idea of the event details later (which of course are very "loose")

Sorry to do this, but I have just been asked to post the following, as it was felt that due to undue publicity regarding the algae it would put people off,

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

It seems no sooner than I get one bit of info its out of date.
We have just been told by the Park warden the the alert of the algae has now be reducecded from RED to Amber, all boating is being allowed (canoes, sailing, etc) but more to point the models are allowed.    So the event is really back on (ignore press from now on !!!)
As it is and Amber altert, it is felt that all model boaters should wear gloves when putting  models in and out of the water (just to be on the safe side)  We will be suppling these, so don't panic. Its hoped by the event the lake will be clear any way.
All the traders have been informed, so spread the word.
All boates catered for (inc IC, OMRA etc)
So Start packing

I am curious as to why is it felt necessary for people to wear gloves and what the health implications of this algae might be?

"I am curious as to why is it felt necessary for people to wear gloves and what the health implications of this algae might be?"
Dr John
 A spokesperson for the water company has told our reporter that they "can accept no liability for any adverse effects - real or imagined - caused by failure of the public to observe irrational H&S rules. It has been found in the past that exposure to such environmental hazzards can result in serious litigation". Perhaps it causes Swine Flu too?
 Liz and I will be there, but I think we'll be taking a flask..................

Did the water company really state "irrational H&S rules" its nice to know that at least one public service has its feet on the ground.
Dave............perhaps it is a cure for swine flu.....and the common cold.......and at the bottom of the lake we will find Arthurs sword alongside the holy grail.

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.
