This is the nearest big show. We attend, as well as Component Shop and Models by Design. There may be a few more this year - check out the website.

I am well and truley gutted.
What I like about Wickstead that did not happen at any other show I had been to to was

Just turn up with a boat and have a sail. dosent matter if you are a member of a club or not no need to pre book. Try doing that a Warwick (note I am NOT knocking warwick)
NO entrace fee.
Best of all it had a that nice small frendly show feal.

I takes years for a show to get its self established on to the show circuit , Wicksteed had done that and got established.

Question
Can any member of the public turn up on any saturday and sail there boat on the model boat lake?

John

You certainly can... I live just up the road so let me know if you go anytime, it'd be nice to meet with more forum members!

Shame about the Wicksteed affair. Has anyone considered Colwick Park in Nottingham? I seem to recall they held a National Multi-racing or OMRA do there a few months ago and all were very impressed with the venue etc.

Hi Guy's

         Bryn Bach Park could always be made available  http://brynbachscalesail.webs.com/
and we host two rounds in OMRA racing each year.

Hi All
we are gutted that Wickstead has been cancelled for what ever reasion. The way I see it is we pick up dust our self off and move on.

Now Wickstead had the advantage of beening in a good central location, with having good  roads from the north south and west and the east.
Any on can turn up and pay wickstaed entrance fee  to get in to the park and use the lake.
So  while we wait to see what mayhem 2013 will be, why done we do an unorgnised mayhem2012. Ok there will be no traders on tea/coffey tent
but there is the lake and hope fully some good weather.
We all injoy this show lets not let it die. All we need is a frequency chart/board for 27mhz and 40 mhz.
So if we turn up on June 2,  2012 Sat and a fun day .

So what do you all say are we in or not.

Its an idea. What does Martin think about this? there may be reasons why not. As a suggestion could we not have a informal meet elsewhere?  This may be best. John.

Wicksteed Park Model Boat Club Committee decided for some reason that they did not want anything to do with Mayhem 2012.
So if lots of people turn up on what was Mayhem Weekend then the locals might see this as Mayhem 2012 the unofficial version.
For the hope of a change of heart in WPMBC,
and a future invitation to return to Wicksteed ,
then an unofficial  meeting might not go down too well with the locals.

Have to agree with Richtea here, this could backfire on us and all the good work done by Martin and the other organisors would be for nought :((
Just my humble opinion.

The meeting was a BMPRS Offshore at Colwick Park, and yes we were made very welcome and had a super day of racing, we are back there on 29th April and 14th of October. Unfortunately Colwick Park suffers terribly from weeding up so is not suitable for Model Boating in the 'weed' season - Late May to end of September.  <:(

I think raflaunches (a wpmbc member) said it all in an earlier post, most of us know where/who the problem is, let the majority rule in that club, let them sort it out for themselves and mayhemmers await the invite back, after all Wickies management have for this year lost a lot of money and will lose future income if it's not sorted, they ain't gonna be happy bunnies with wpmbc >>:-(

All the best to Nick B
I hope your meeting has a favourable outcome next week, and well done for standing up and speaking out. :-))

I can offer any Sunday at Corby Boating Lake (about 7 miles from Wickies) as a stop gap for this year, free lakeside parking, cafe, toilets, two purpose built launch area's for Model Boats, dawn to dusk sailing but no overnight camping I'm afraid. IC welcome  :D
The cafe's all day breakfasts are superb.
I say any Sunday just as long as it doesn't clash with any of our BMPRS racing dates.

Cheers

This is an idea that has already been talked about by the committee. However we do not need to upset WPMBC any more so that maybe next year we can go back.

It has already been said but it is not a good idea to just turn up to use Wicksteed Park lake, WPMBC sails on there regularly so we do not need to turn up and upset them. Venues for next year are being looked at, so this year is just a sabatical next year Mayhem 2013 will be better than ever, where ever it is.

Have the steering committee given thought of approaching the management of Ellesmere Port Boat museum as to a venue...very easily accessible and a lot of water on two split levels to sail on.....just a suggestion.
neil.
Worth thinking about Neil.  :-))

I second that, I see no reason why we should let our fun be spoiled...  Obviously without the camping and all the amenities offered by wicksteed it would attract less people but I think it would be nice to just have a forum gathering where we can all sail, we could still hold some competitions...
