Taking into account the concerns about access for the disabled, it isn't that far from the carpark to the lakeside via a gate across the railway line on pretty good going. The quality of Wicksteed members and attendees assures you that someone will help launch/recover your boat.

Looking forward to next years already but the Travelodge calendar does not go as far ahead as May 2017 so I cannot book my room yet!

Post by: Klunk on December 18, 2016, 01:26:55 PM
There is no need to register. WICKSTEED park has a campsite but please wait till end of january as we might get a discount. We will endeavour to put as much info up As soon as we know.
Those who do camp have a very friendly disposition and we normally on the Saturday night have a communal BBQ where everyone e throws good in the middle and some poor sap cooks it all for you.

Hi and welcome


The organising of the mayhem weekend and the relevant discounts are well in progress and we will get all the confirmed information from Wicksteed Park management after Christmas/New Year period as its one of their busiest times at the moment but all is going well. :-))
We should get the same discount as last year and same camping location in the campsite.
As soon as the New Year holiday is over I'll get the information sent out on the forum.
Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year everyone.

Providing Beale Park is not the same weekend I may invest in a small tent.  If you can wait that long Dave I can bring you the "Four Ships Arrived" Thames Tug.  Swap for some bacon butties ?

HI Bob.  I can arrange cooking g facilities. You just bring your tent and food etc. I can even supply the chef!
Don't forget sat night is BBQ night. I normally pop to the local shop on sat and get the food.

Hello,

Soon as we all arrive, start practicing for a "Sail By" for as many boats as we can get on the water.
Needs to be on video for posterity !!!!.

That's the rumour I've heard too.


I think a massive photo get together of mayhem members with their boats to celebrate over ten years of Mayhem with Martin in the middle will have to happen!
A simple challenge would be good too so members can use their current boats regardless of what they are.

How about making free sailing paper boats? Waterproofing is optional! @
Title: Re: Mayhem Weekend 2017
Post by: raflaunches on December 24, 2016, 04:58:35 PM
That's a brilliantly different idea that's cheap and cheerful.
We could have a race from one side of the lake to the other and back again! :-))

How about a regatta involving odd or unique vessel designs? Between us, Bob K and I can hopefully put two out of the ten 'Bizarre ships' from the John Currie book of that name, namely Novgorod and Polyphemus. There are cylindrical ships and jointed ships amongst others described. The Whinnan family were mad for cigar ships.

Looking forward to this brilliant weekend as it'll be one of my first back in the UK after right weeks of hard work. :-))

Title: Re: Mayhem Weekend 2017 Campsite Discount
Post by: raflaunches on March 10, 2017, 07:35:27 PM
Hi everyone


Good news from the Wicksteed Park end of the organising  :-))


As promised we have the park to thank for a £10 off per night discount from Thursday night to Monday morning for those wishing to camp in the park's campsite. To redeem this discount when booking through the reception (phone number tel:01536 512475) please quote that you are with the 'Model Boat Mayhem'and they will automatically discount the money for you. Please don't use the online booking form as these will not work. This discount equates to approx 33-45% discount depending on the night.


We will have the same camping position as last year just inside the entrance to the camp and immediately to the left.


We will have some new tables to play with but it will be for those who can't fit a table(s) in their vehicle.
If you can please bring a table, many thanks ok2


We will also have 30 new chairs for our weary legs for the weekend too.


There will be due to popular demand a tombola stand with some good prizes and a bring and buy table too.


And a newly refurbished shelter and jetty will also be in use.


Hope to see you there! :-))

Title: Re: Mayhem Weekend 2017

You'll have to hang on for a bit longer, Phil...mine is very much still in the early stages. I have the hull (built by Ray Sparkes, a copy of "Mona"), a beautiful brass fuel tank, again made by Ray, the engine mounting plate, and a couple of alloy props.

I'm saving all my loose change for a motor for it...it will have a Saito .120 four stroke in it, a lovely looking engine, and really looks "vintage".

Hello,

We have lots of different sized yachts at the Mayhem Event.
Normally yacht races are set up for yachts all of the same size, or class.
Bigger yachts are usually faster than small yachts.
But there are ways of racing different sized yachts together !!.

All of the yachts set off together.
All the yachts are timed how long they took to finish the course.
The fastest yacht starts the next lap LAST !!!.
The slowest starts FIRST !!!.
All of the other boats start according to their finishing time.

Any BIG changes in times can be adjusted to keep things in order.
The Birkenhead and Fleetwood Clubs use this method - - I have sailed in races using it and it works !.

It all works a treat !, after the first  race - - also timed, corrections can be made to the start times for following races.

John.  :-))

Is there.an actual programme of events or is it just a free for all on the water? It all sounds a bit disorganised at the moment.

A published timetable for the two days would be helpful.

Hi Colin


As usual most of the actual sailing will be free sailing however events (for example the WW1 battle fleet from last year) will have times agreed on the day and announced over the PA system to clear the lake to allow these events to be seen effectively and safely. A section of the lake is sectioned off for smaller boats for example plastic magic boats to use without interference from normal or larger sized models.
There is a frequency control board in the Mayhem tent to have a central control point of the radios.

Title: Re: Mayhem Weekend 2017
Post by: Colin Bishop on April 12, 2017, 06:19:17 PM
Thanks Nick,

I must confess that I lean towards building rather than sailing these days. To be honest, after half an hour or so I find free sailing a bit boring although I accept it is the norm now. It's a while since I have been to Wicksteed as I am not usually free that weekend and I wondered how things are run these days. My models are scale, on the small side and fragile and when I last visited I didn't like to put them on the water along within the much faster and larger boats rushing around. The introduction of a 'safe area' is a good idea and I'm sure is appreciated.

I don't know if I will be free this year either and my drive to Wicksteed involves negotiating half of the M25 in both directions which inevitably means spending a lot of time in traffic jams, especially on a holiday weekend.

In my younger days I was happy to drive all over the country to MPBA steering events but today's road conditions are rather a deterrent and there seem to be very few steering course regattas now which is what used to really interest me.

I will make up my own mind nearer the time but I am sure it will be a great event for all who attend.

OK, OK,  if you are thinking of coming, who's interested in what?
( In no particular priority ... )

1.  Free sailing?
2.  Scale sale? ( Not sure what that actually means! )
3.  Yacht races?
4.  Springer tugs?
5.  Club 500?
6.  Tug type events?
7.  Steering competition?
8.  Blind Steering competition?
9.  Straight running?
10.  Tethered Hydro
11.  Multi Racing
12.  RC Warship Combat
13.  Anything too fast, very noisy, dangerous, illegal, etc, etc!
14.  Fun boat competition?
15.  Concours de Elegance?

......... what else?

Title: Re: Mayhem Weekend 2017
Post by: Colin Bishop on April 12, 2017, 09:17:27 PM
I think you have put your finger on it there Martin. In my view, whether I come or not(!), there should indeed be a mixture of free sailing plus themed sessions but if you attempt too many then none of them will be done properly! Each one needs a bit of organisation and you shouldn't spread yourself too thin in this respect.

If you have a steering course then that has to be set out and presumably the Wicksteed club will have to provide the obstacles. Nick has already said that part of the lake will be partitioned off for small models and it would make sense to fit the steering course into this and designate that area for 'sedate' models rather than just small ones. This would give the opportunity for people to test their skills in handling their scale models. Making it competitive would add to the organisational overhead so maybe drop that but it is still fun to steer round obstacles and carry out dockings etc. to show how well the models can be controlled as opposed to driving battleships around free sailing at 50+ scale knots!

Tug towing is always popular and maybe this could be done around the steering course mentioned above.

Springers - these are associated with things like water football. Might be worth a punt but only if enough are present.

I think Phil Abbott and Dave Jones have got straight running pretty well organised in the past so just give them some sessions to organise and oversee.

It sounds like a 'Warship Parade' would be popular so maybe some sessions dedicated to warships showing off their paces around the free sailing area.

Yacht races and Club 500 races need to be properly organised and run so would need to be sorted out in advance with people to be responsible for them. Not something you can really muddle through on the day and they also require a fair bit of time which could eat into the time for other activities. The amount of interest needs to be established before the event to see if it is worth running.

Scale sail is just the yachting equivalent of motorised free sailing except that the boats can't so easily get out of the way. So just a 'sail' free sailing session perhaps if there are enough models to justify it.

Concours - yes, that could be done on the bank but you will need a set of rules for the judges to work to - maybe easier said than done these days when the distinctions between RTR, Ebay sourced, kits, semi kits and scratchbuilt models are increasingly blurred. A Mayhem event doesn't really lend itself to the application of specific judging rules.  Perhaps just best for you, Martin, to take a general overview and make awards on the basis of your personal preferences. Nobody can then argue with that.

The above would all provide a bit of variety from just free sailing

Just my thoughts anyway,

Colin

Post by: Stavros on April 12, 2017, 09:33:47 PM
For the last 5 years and due to your request Colin the lake was sectioned into 3...small delecate craft
..bottom end...a straight running course....and a general sailing area....so something for everyone

I intend to bring HMS Ready and HMS M19 so a WW1 warship regatta would be nice to share one's mini fleet in.

Free sailing plus periods for Faster models, Special models (Those that are entertaining and quirky) Warships-general and the like would be great.

A Cabin cruiser concourse sail would be nice if the weather is like last year  :}

Post by: Klunk on April 13, 2017, 01:22:41 AM
Jaydee Precisely . This is not an inflammatory post, but an advisory that has been tried over many years at mathem.

It does not necessarily need to be structured for every minute of the day. There us a safe area for shallow or fragile boats. Steering course for those that want to have a go. Last year we never put out the straight running course and that opened up the lake. Club 500 and fast electrics can have a section of the lake just get together then go ask Martin so the lake can be cleared. Same as when the Ww1 review happened last year. If its going to be so structured like Warwick pool (which I understand) then a lot of people will get annoyed. The whole spirit of mayhem is exactly that. Mayhem. Not in any way to destroy boats or to put people off. If you want to do a demo, find peeps with similar boats ie steam, sail, fragile, plastic magic etc and ask. We all want to see these boats on the water. But as for having a set structure......lol you seen the weather I the past?

When I phoned back she said it had now been given to her.
She sounded very young and bubbly !!.
My details were dealt with smoothly and swiftly.

Post by: Klunk on May 14, 2017, 08:52:21 AM
OK all. Hope everyone is comfortable and settled.
At Mayhem this year,  I have a reference special.
Among my friends, I count a certain Mr Dave Abbott. he has now sold his house in the uk and has moved to Malta. While he was sorting out his goods, he has given me 5 boxes of reference books from his time modelling. These will be bought to the mayhem weekend. At present I have not even had a chance to look at them properly so there will be no advance list of books. All will be for sale at very reasonable prices.
At the moment I have in my hand an envelope marked London fireboats plans and photos. Notably a picture reference of London Phoenix.
His build pictures of HMS Ives ton.
Reference pics of the dredger Esk
The Royal Navy by Wilfred pym Trotter
Steam on Windermere by g pattinson
The diaries of Lord mount batten
Iron afloat wiliam still
Hope this gives a taster.


Klunk


Ps I will also have some vintage rc gear. like
Futaba fd17m servos
Fd33m servos
Futaba FP R2L RECEIVER
PLUS SOME RADUOS FROM THE SAME ERA!

There will be no Robbie Atlantic this year I'm afraid. She requires a major overhaul and it's difficult to get parts,  meaning I'm having to fabricate them.
But hopefully I will be bringing another surprise boat for you all to sail!

That makes food planning easier.  I only have very limited space.  I will bring some burgers and sausages to donate for the BBQ, plus a bottle of tipple, and hope someone will allow me to use their stove for bacon and eggs Sunday morning.  If I brought a cooker with gas bottle I'd have to leave the boats at home.

Post by: Colin Bishop on May 25, 2017, 08:49:29 PM
Dave, removing a DPF is an automatic MOT fail as you should know. I agree that the device can cause all manner of problems to the engine as it is an engineering bodge but basically it is there to catch the unburnt fuel in the form of soot particles and does so at the expense of engine efficiency which is maybe what you are thinking of?

I used to have a diesel Mondeo without a DPF and used to cringe when I put my foot down and saw the black cloud in the back window. My subsequent diesel Mazda had a DPF which caught the soot particles and was less anti social but the MPG was less. Of course all diesels have now been shown to emit toxic levels of NO2 but that is a gas rather than a particulate discharge.

These days I drive a petrol car.

new dpf ordered, and it will be going back in, - i do alot of miles, and already have a  fuel efficient ' blue efficiency' car, the dpf is trying to protect the environment  for all our off spring, and future generations after that..


removing dpf is an mot failure too - and i am pretty sure herr daimer and herr benz has spent alot of time and money with specialists and scientists developing such a bit of kit, -so i will bow to their knowledge, have it replaced and keep the remainder of my cars warranty intact...


interestingly enough the DPF is only warrantied to 2 years or 80,000 miles anyway

Mayhem at Wicksteed 2017 - is a fun 'come sail your Boat’  weekend for blokes and their families. You've spent all that time building it... put it on the water!

 It's a very relaxed weekend.... unless the wind gets up then it's usually gets exciting very quickly, we've had Gazebo flying contest in past years!  The Camping & Bar B Q is a big part of the event and is a highlight for those types foolish enough to indulge in such things! ( As you can tell, I've yet to be persuaded of the wonders of sleeping in a mobile room on wheels or under canvas! )   %)

The pond is a purpose built model boating lake in the grounds of a privately owned public park, like Alton Towers but without the need for a mortgage to get in! There is a car parking fee but that's the only charges for the weekend. There are quite a few fairground rides for the younger type humans as it is very much a family orientated 'theme park.'

We're situated down on the left hand side of the park, follow signs to "Mayhem Event" or "Camping field".
Parking in about 40 yards from the lake on a grass field. There are usually a couple of trolleys around to haul your stuff to the lake side. You are welcome to set up your own gazebo lakeside, personal, club or Trader Free of Fee!

It mostly free sailing with some demonstration events, e.g. Straight running, Warships, yachts, Springers, etc.
Most people are on 2.4Gig these days but there is a Frequency board for 27 & 40Mhz.
Best of all, Free TEA & COFFEE all weekend ….. if I can persuade Mrs & Little Miss Mayhem to do the honours again!

The whole event was conceived to get us of the internet, away from the workbench, off our collective arses and go sail our boats and actually come meet with one another! It has always been a well humoured events, one of the best laughs I have all year.

…. we’ll even pull your car out of the lake if needs be!

Scots lads here, Luton lads here, uncle jd and uncle bobx and Phil and Steph here.


This event is a model boaters event, you have great models on display and about 90% of models all sail.


To me as a model boat builder this is the best event to see both static and sailing boats.


There is so many model boat events in a year but this is the one where you can display your beautiful work and sail. No one will judge you. You have a boat and you do your best we all love it cause you have done your best and to a standard your proude of.


We travel about 600 miles to come to this event.


You have a boat you sail it, you worked you'd 'bottom' on it that is all that matters, get to the events orangised by modellers for modellers.


Boats should be on the water, they where built for it, but there is some great statics as well.
If anyone disagrees with my statement I'm sorry.

Thankyou for a great day at Wicksteed folks! It was lovely to meet some of my fellow Mayhemists again and see some astounding models and learn a few more useful ideas for building and finishing.

While mainly a warship fan, I did like the other models, and was impresed with the lakeworthiness of that minute yacht that plied the chop yesterday afternoon amongst the giant life boats!
After this morning's noise at the motel I am tempted to try camping next year (Or take ear defenders  <*<   )

How many boats were there on Saturday?  From the pictures it looks like loads got on the water.  We drove up from Canterbury and arrived mid afternoon to find one boat sailing and a very small number on display.  We walked round the pond, had a second look at the displays and went home very disappointed less than fifteen minutes after we arrived.  I've seen way better displays at Herne Bay eight miles away.  I won't be going "up north" again soon.

Croakle,
Sounds like you are omitting a small fact.....
The wind was kicking up such as swell it was swamping models
Also it was so windy the sailing boats couldn't sail!!!!


You left inside 15minutes...... so you missed the whole point of the weekend
To meet and interact with like minded people have a bit of a natter and banter


Myself and 3 others travel from scotland and we WILL be back  :-))

Post by: ballastanksian on May 28, 2017, 04:01:45 PM
The weather had turned pretty nasty and had curtailed most activity by 2 ish. The morning saw a good selection of boats sailing with repeat performances.

I thought I might get around to talk to everyone this weekend, but missed a good few people today.

Did you have a conversation with anyone yesterday Croakle? I ask because the time would have flown especially with so many great models to find out about. I drove up from Sussex (but usually drive up from Somerset) and believe me, if I did not think it worth going I would not drive that far! If I did not have to leave thismorning, I would have been there until the traffic had died down thisevening.

Arrive at any show mid afternoon you would have missed a lot by the time of your arrival . Since Mayhem is an out door show it is at the mercy of the weather . In the morning the wind speed was low . by lunch it was getting up and by afternoon it was getting to windy for models to sail safely. Did you Ron Dean had 3 models broken by the wind . I stopped sailing at about 2 ish due to the wind .
The fact is you turned up late towards the end of the day  expect an informal show to be at its peak . Try arriving early .

It was a shame that Ron lost so many models, and a few display items as well due to unpredictable gusts. Several of us did our best to keep things steady while Ron and Klunk ferried stuff to the van.

What was the weather like today?

Today the weather was hot.........and virtually no wind.
Again a brilliant weekend, spoilt by the high wind. ...but  not too much!
2 early nights by the campers.....both well before midnight. Saturday night was particularly cold dropping to 5 degrees.
He's there was Sloe gin, as well as calvados and pastiche. ...and parsnip wine amongst other normal drinks.
Friday was fish and chips night and a few brave souls had battered deep fried haggis!
Saturday was the normal BBQ evening....but we started early. Normal fayre of burgers sausages kebabs, chops etc as well as plain chicken and a peri peri and rum chicken cooked by the Luton chef and the Scottish chef. Thanks all those that ate it!!
Sunday started brilliantly. Very warm and it just got warmer. Lots of sailing and many Conversation's!
Ballastanksian......I must have talked to you but I still,  after all these years cannot put a face to your name!

Thanks to all those that had books of me and donated to the RNLI.
Thanks to all the Wicksteed crew for, as ever hosting the event. To Martin and Mrs Mayhem and Little Miss for tirelessly making tea and taking pics.
Little Miss, if the zip wire is open next year I will pay for you to climb the wall and go on it.
To the Scottish contingent.....gain a big thanks for keeping everything fun, especially to Dave.....trousers and trainers.
To all those that camped........it's always fun....especially when Jaydee made Nick move his tent as it was in his parking spot!
To Bobk ....... more than a few things learnt  from you this weekend.
To all. ....and this is unbelievable. ....no sinkings  that we are aware of!  Even with all the high winds. I went in the lake twice to help build a dock and dismantle it.

Apart from Ron''s models, only 1 gazebo at the campsite was damaged beyond repair. ...but one of the Scottish contingent used the fabric Saturday night to keep warm. One other slightly damaged.

Overall a great weekend. If you are going to attend in future check the weather an turn up early! You might see some boats in the water!

Wow !!  A super two and a half days, seeing as I had previously only gone for day visits.
First time I have been in a tent for nearly forty years.  Thanks to Klunk and the camp site team for helping put my mini tent up and being so friendly and welcoming.  Nice fish & chips dinner Friday, very fun BBQ Sunday.  Two nice cooked breakfasts helped to warm the heart after chilly nights.
The Bacon butties and hot cuppa's at the Mayhem family table are always special.

Friday and Saturday were a (bit) windy but I still sailed my ultra low freeboard Polyphemus and Royal Marine. The projected storm passed by with only a few little damp things for a short while.  Quite a few boats were still being run until late on Saturday.

Sunday was awesome weather. very low wind and plenty of sun.  Always nice to chat with so many Mayhem colleagues.  Ballastanksian:  Nice to finally put a face to your Sign-in.  I was totally surprised by Ron Dean slipping up on me with a brand new Agincourt hull.    (See Agincourt thread for photo)

A complete battle squadron in line astern was a sight that blew the mind.  HMS Iron Duke with guns firing, HMS Dreadnaught, HMS Superb, and HMS Rodney, escorted by HMS Suffolk.  All mega big ships.
Nick & Steve's Admiralty Train Ferry seems to look better each time I see it, and the sub X1 cuts a fine figure on the water.  Lots of very early TBD's in various guises, plus some unusual Japanese warships.

I must apologise to Ron K for spending much of the day drooling over his awesomely detailed HMS Agincourt.

Unfortunately it seems that some still don't understand the Mayhem Weekend.
It isn't your usual model boat show.
It is a way for internet Forum members to meet, chat, interact and get to know each other.
That is it.
Oh yes and have some fun sailing model boats.
I have made some good friends here over the years and even got to see young Colin from Glasgow Richmond after a gap of about 20 yrs and about 2'6 in height.

Evening All  :-)) :-)) :-))
 
Wicky Weekend!!! What can we say?
 
Thanks to all who make this great event what it is - it is truly one of a kind.  Where else can you see Ron Dean shrug off the fact that a number of his wonderful models got trashed by the gusts of wind that blew them and their display cases to kingdom come.  Most modellers would have been fuming and gnashing but not Ron - it was more a case of 'another cuppa then and where's me chocolate buiscuit?'  That is the spirit of Wicky!!!!!
Flo and I had a cracking time on Saturday in spite of the wind.  We sailed both the Norland and the Pride of Hythe and neither sank or turned turtle.......they both had a hell of a list at times mind!!!!!  So sorry and disappointed that we couldn't stay for today as well but I needed to be in West Wales delivering some kits.  It was great to meet up with friends again and chew the fat although I was sorry not to meet up with Ballastanksian.........at least, I am sure we didn't speak unless you tell me otherwise  :embarrassed: :embarrassed: :embarrassed: .
Next year - the whole weekend from Friday to Sunday  O0 O0 O0
Carl (and Flo, of course!)

Mr and Mrs Zippy thoroughly enjoyed another great show blessed with glorious weather and calm waters on Sunday,
allowing Wallace and Gromit's steam paddler to make her 'Grandest Day Out' to date -
chugging half way around the circumference of the lake until the Meths ran out !

Nice to see friends old and new in action enjoying their hobby having FUN on the water -
stark contrast to the formal atmosphere indoors in the cold at Warwick in November where many will meet again.

Big thanks to all involved in this special unique event.

There is always next year Ken.

And I thought John's yacht was graceful and then you put those films of Rodney up! Two beautiful vessels.

Carl, I was loitering around your stand on Saurday morning when you were launching a ferry. I was going to come back on the Sunday and have a natter but an early departure for us both made that a no go!

Next year we shall have a chinwag.

And it didn't sink (makes a change for me), so no salvage rights.  A big weight 'till I complete this one.

Hello,


Well, it all happened again !!!.
Wicksteed  could not be pre-planned, an Event that is SO enjoyable just happens !!.
Meeting old friends and spending Time with them, laughing and joking is beyond planning.
Saying Good Bye at the end was quite emotional !.
I had a wonderful time - - - roll on the next one.

Would have loved to be there but I have to blame
SWIMBO's parents as she was born on the 27/5/??
Last time I was there we originated the game of
Gazebo Levitation (2010) and it came back this
year %%
I amazed you have a moan from a visitor, Rain Hail
Showers of frogs, it is the Meeting of the Year :-))
P.S. for ?? Read 47, so Milestone 70.

Well, we've recovered from a fantastically brilliant weekend of fun... and oh model boating!!! :D

I'd like to thank:
Martin, Mrs Mayhem and Miss Mayhem for looking after everyone especially with tea and coffee and most importantly the bacon butties on Sunday morning.

Klunk, and the Luton team

SteamboatPhil and his Apprentice Steph

The Scottish Lads

JayDee

Ron Dean of Deans Marine and Carl and Flo of Linkspan Models for their continuous support over the years

PAMBC

King Lear MBC

Coventry MBC

Northampton & District MBC

Blackheath MPBC

Model Hovercraft Association

I had a fantastic time sailing with Bob K, Geoff Dixon, James Jones (Suffolk1928), Ron Kingdon and Tony Newstead as a battlefleet.

I'd like to thank my team at Wicksteed Park MBC for setting up the site for the weekend and their help in assisting in the smooth running of the weekend.

If I have missed anyone I apologise but it was brilliant talking, sailing and displaying with you. :-))
Here's to next year! ok2

Ah well, another Mayhem Weekend ended and what a great time we had. I would like to thank all those who make this event such a hit. Nick and the Wicksteed gang, the irrepressible Klunk for his boundless energy, the Luton boys, Phil and his lovely Apprentice, Jaydee, Bob K, Ron Dean, all the clubs who make the time to attend and last but not least, Martin and Mrs and Miss Mayhem for all their hard work.
We travel over 700 mies to attend this event and for canny Scots like us, to part with our well earned groats to attend year in, year out, is testament to its huge success.
See you again next year, my fellow Mayhemers, I'm looking forward to it already :-))

A really great weekend - glad I went both days this time! Thank you to all the Mayhemers and Clubs that support it & make it a success.


Great to catch up with fellow enthusiasts (the usual suspects...) & meet some new boaters!


Brilliant to see the collection of 1/96 scale warships out on Sunday Morning, need to work on our fleet manouevers a bit though

Already put in the request to C in C Home Fleet for day release next year  ok2

Well the apprentice and I are now back in Normandy, what a great weekend we had, OK so after a little breeze on the Saturday afternoon we will once again require another gazebo, but hey, every 3 years isn't that bad. It was as always great to catch up with old friends and make some new ones this year. from the Friday night fish and chips right through to a few drinks with lads north of the boarder ( and the interlopers....not invited) on the Sunday night fun was had.
Some great models both on and off the water and lots of great banter with all, if I missed boring you on steam I will find you next year  {-)
Thanks to all involved but especially Little Miss Mayhem, Mrs Mayhem.....oh and him Mayhem
And all others who have already been mentioned, thank you.
And of course Steamboatapperntice who traveled on the roof so I could get the v important Mayhem tea urn in the car..... O0
Looking forward to next year....... :-))

Ok guys the pennies dropped - I've been officially Mayhem papped sporting a loud shirt in honour of our 'Leader'.

Wondered why Steamboat was chatting away like a man possessed - distracting me from the shenanigans going on behind my back.

nice one chaps,  Warwicks not far away and I have a nice 600ml telephoto lense - keep looking over your shoulder Lol.

Hi Jonty. A really small one about 10 inches long?

  Not that small. Are you sure it was a TID? There was a Revell conversion of a trawler (I think) about that size.

Hi Baloo,

Could be arranged, I have an assortment of loud shirts collected over the years,
they went with the territory working in graphics etc,
but none so vibrant as our Leader/Martin the Guv'nors glorious range !

Hoping to be at the Lifeboat event at King Lear Model Boat Club on 18th June,
but may be travelling back from hols pending how things go.

Wonders if anyone will have a Shannon or part built Shannon on the water by the 18th June,
would be nice to see one in action, now there's a challenge for Lifeboat enthusiasts.

Regards Zippy
