Title: Mayhem at Wicksteed 2018
Post by: Klunk on May 29, 2017, 03:00:57 PM
After this year's do.........the committee (is there a committee? ) are pleased to announce the dates for 2018.
26 -27 May 2018.

Come meet your fellow modellers and Forum members. Put names to faces and see who built what.
Can't promise good weather, but we can promise good company and lots of boats.

We propose a small theme for next year....
In honour of 2 well known boat builders, we would like to see some boats from Vic Smeed and Glynn Guest
All you have to do is build them! 

There will be a small prize for the best boat!

Hope to see you all there .........

Sir Klunk & Martin!

I think this is a fantastic idea and I now have a third project between my two main ones. :-)


Let's see how many we can get for Mayhem at Wicksteed 2018. :-))

Couple of questions Klunk;

1. Can it be a modified GG or VS design? (eg. bigger)
2. Have I read somewhere, that someone used a car type differential gearbox, with brakes,  to drive and steer a side-wheel paddle boat?!

 .... just thinking out loud...  %)
Title: Re: Mayhem at Wicksteed 2018
Post by: Klunk on May 30, 2017, 06:46:30 PM
 
I think in the spirit of Mayhem it can be a modified design.
if you want to build it big enough to house that type of gear then be my guest, i will even help launch it!!!

Plan ordered from Traplett....looking forward to building an RTTL, the first model boat I ever built. I always wanted to build another, so this is an ideal. opportunity :-))
Title: Re: Mayhem at Wicksteed 2018
Post by: Klunk on May 30, 2017, 07:14:15 PM
Well hopefully we will have a lot of uptake on this. Both have given so much to model boating.
Title: Re: Mayhem at Wicksteed 2018
Post by: davidsg1a on May 30, 2017, 07:20:10 PM
I'll be doing one as well, in spirit of the show and coming up with a good idea to get everyone building, hopefully everyone will take part.


Would having a separate topic be good so people can post there progress?

Hi ya Bri

I have just been through the thread for the RTTL build - I noticed half of the pics are missing at the end - no doubt this may be due to a wobbler that happened to Mayhem,.   I wonder if Martin can salvage some of the pics he may have them on backup disc somewhere - I don't keep build logs.   

If I can help though, I will.

Post by: SteamboatPhil on May 31, 2017, 11:49:35 AM
Blimey, well reminded, my dad built me that in 1969 although without the vane steering and I still have the boat. So I think I will add the vane gear for next years mayhem, I have have also decided what I am going to build (scaled up a little) it will be guess the boat during the build log  :-)) :-))
Title: Re: Mayhem at Wicksteed 2018
Post by: Bob K on May 31, 2017, 08:44:13 PM
Replicas of classic vintage builds sounds interesting, but what really lights my boilers is imagining an even larger battle squadron of six foot plus battleships.  There should be two Agincourt's on the water next year to add to that awesome line ahead column.  Plus, I know that Nick is building a famous battlecruiser from an extended Dreadnaught hull.  We may even get to see more ships with simulated broadsides ?

That long line of mega ships was my highlight of Wicksteed, something you will not see at your local pond.

Post by: Kevgarth on June 01, 2017, 12:09:57 AM
B-Liner was a Vic Smeed design Phil I built one and funny enough it's still in my parents loft l think with a more powerful motor than a Monoperm I think it will be a lot more of a successful boat.

After 2 years away I finally have all the stars aligned and the diary allows us to return to Wicksteed in 2018. We also now have a caravan so will there be the camping arrangements available in previous years for those with tin tents or shall I book a local site? Want to get it booked up quickly then she can't change her mind  <*<

Hi Alex


There is on site camping facilitiy where we have all the fun and BBQs at night.
I'll be sorting out the arrangements in the near future regarding campsite discounts, etc.
Title: Re: Mayhem at Wicksteed 2018
Post by: Klunk on January 15, 2018, 11:43:37 PM
Well 2018 is here. So happy new year to you all.
I hope you are all on your builds, GG, vic smeed or the secret 10!
For those camping, its time to start dusting off the cobwebs from the equipment.
For all others its time to just dust off the cobwebs!
Nick and Steve are brewing Sloe gin, the scottish contingent will be doing there own thing as usual....and i do not want to think what Steamboat Phil is bringing after last years sampling!
As usual fish and chips on friday night and the BBQ on Saturday for those camping.
Free tea and coffee all weekend (donations always welcome in the box!)
Great sailing weather promised....just not sure by who! But we have had 2 good years on the trot now.
As usual free entry but WP charge for parking. Im sure once Nick is back he will fill in more relevant details.
As previous years car parking within 100 yards of the lake, if you need help getting boats to the lake please ask on the day.
Title: Re: Mayhem at Wicksteed 2018
Post by: Klunk on January 15, 2018, 11:52:14 PM
Ps. On a side note for the BBQ, you bring the food and i will cook it. Anyone want to be more adventurous than sausages and burgers, and Stepanie that DOES NOT MEAN GREEN STUFF!
But i can conceed to stuffed peppers, filled garlic mushrooms, grilled haloumi, salmon fillets, etc etc

Post by: Bob K on January 16, 2018, 10:37:43 PM
I aim to be there for both days, arriving Friday evening.  I think I got my tiny tent figured out from last year.
Best event on the calendar IMHO   :-))

If anyone remembers Ron surprising me with a giant hull, and then loading it with 29Kg of lead, I am aiming to bring the full working ship this time.  Automatic turret bearing control and gun fire smoke included.  Yes, a 2.2 metre ship can fit in a tiny car  %%

It is pretty good for parking, even later in the day, and the path to the lake from the parking area is level enough not to shake all the joints loose on your superstructure! There is a narrow gauge railway track across the access road the path links to but I have never seen any issues the times I have been.

I expect we would have heard much gnashing of teeth about it if it was contrary!

Just a quick reminder.....
Glyn guest and vic smeed designs for sail by. Any WWI boats....just to please RAF LAUNCHES AND BOBK. Secret 10..
You know what you are upto!
Hopefully Nick will fill us in on the WP details.
Not sure what Martin will be wearing.
Penguins and haggi allowed this year.
The Scottish contingent will be moral oggucers this year
Steamboat Phil is Master of Ceremonies
Ron Dean..is Ron Dean......

Special appearance by Boris and Flo.

And (aiming for) the first gun fire battle between dreadnaughts, each using Geoff's unique gun fire system.
HMS Iron Duke vs HMS Agincourt.

Was it only last year that Ron Dean surprised me with a giant hull, and proceeded to load it with 29 kg of ballast?

Only room for one boat on board.  I will have to make batteries last somehow.

On a side note.......does anyone want to make a video of the weekend.....like Martin does with the camera. Ho around film all the boats on display a couple of interviews etc. And if your camping the weekend a highly edited version of the Saturday BBQ. You know just for you tube. The unedited version is to be used for blackmail.
Also any volunteers for the death slide if its open this year. People i would like to see go on it.....any of the scottish contingent.  Martin.  Little Miss, Stavros, Steamboat Apprentice, Ballastankian.  Sorry Bobk your not tall enough!

warwick was my birthday weekend. And that was standing half naked in the most English pub I have ever been in. Singing the welsh national anthem as loud as I could
Ordering 20 pizzas. And getting a taxi  100 ft up the road
That was a cracking weekend too
Title: Re: Mayhem Weekend 2018
Post by: ballastanksian on February 07, 2018, 10:18:18 PM
I intend to stay both days this year come what may (including bearing the lack of sleep Saturday night caused by two rooms of girls and women from the same family moving from one room to another via loud knocking and talking in the corridor despite two warnings from the night manager. I don't know enough expletives in Urdu or Persian to get my point across about SLEEP! ) so I will have more time on the Sunday to get moist on the death slide!

How much is it? If it is more than a reasonable sunday roast then I may have priority issues!

Hi Phil


Discount all sorted and in the finalised stage of ensuring that when a Mayhem member rings up to book their camping space that the person on the other end knows to give the discount as a new team of receptionists arrived last year and didnít know! Fingers crossed youíll get all the information in 12 days when I return from Aki!
Title: Re: Mayhem Weekend 2018 - May 27, 27
Post by: Rolfy Dave on March 08, 2018, 04:05:53 PM
How come I was told by Martin, that there was no discount this year ? Without a discount at £30 per night for me to do for me to do Fri/Sat/Sunday night's, because of my disability, which meant £90 without any electric, it put it out of my available pocket (As I was coming on my own - My wife hates model weekends). So now i have made other arrangements to go to another "day event", I find that discounts are available. I'm not changing my arrangements again. So looks like I miss out on Mayhem again.
Extremely fed up about it 😔
Title: Re: Mayhem Weekend 2018 - May 27, 27
Post by: raflaunches on March 08, 2018, 04:25:24 PM
Hi Rolfy Dave


Iím sorry to hear about the confusion. I donít know why Martin said that but he is quite a busy man and may have been misinformed about the discount. Either way Iím sorry for it as Iím the one who organises the campsite discount. The reason why the discount information is late being issued every year is because the Park doesnít formally open until Easter every year so they operate with a skeleton crew. They have to brief out the information to the receptionists so we donít get the confusion we had a few years back when some of them didnít know about the Mayhem discount and a few angry Mayhemers couldnít book the site.
Hopefully this is all behind us with the new Management and I get on quite well with the new MD.
Regards


Nick

Iíve just checked my inbox for my emails as usually I get a response in a couple of days but no reply. Did a bit of investigation and discovered that the clever iPhone predictive software chose an old email address to send my last email to. Iíve sent another to the email address I know that works!
Iíll let you know hopefully by Wednesday. Typical technology letting down simple requests! %%
If all else fails Iím going up to reception on Tuesday to drop off the paperwork for the weekend I get it sorted then.

Can anyone answer this please?
Thanks Andre

Unfortunately yes.

I believe it's £6 per day, Mayhem has no control over this as its the park that charges it.

Hello Campers, Hi-Di-Hi!


Just finished speaking with the park and we have a discount for the campers which lowers it to the lower rates for the long weekend.
Please contact the park directly via telephone quoting that you are ĎModel Boat Mayhem campersí. The telephone number is: tel:(01536) 512475


Please do not ring today, all bookings will start from Friday 6 April and please do not book later than one week before the Mayhem weekend as they need to know how much space to allocate to us in the campsite.


Any problems please let me know via the forums PM system and Iíll try my best to sort it out. :-))
