:) Don't think I'd be able to control any of your boats! except maybe that rtr tug! lol

I'm holding out hope of having the duck fixed in time, but my Flower Class has a burned out motor (6v monoperm), so I'll have to order a new motor and mount. Will still be there, just maybe not with any of my own boats!
Derrick you are more than welcome to pop over and collect a motor, I've quite a few hiding in my workshop, probably will never use them again, pm me if you want one,  :-))  what's wrong with the Duck ?

Does anyone know what the plan is for camping, is the price the same for a tent as it is for a caravan, Is there a seperate area for tents?

Thanks

20-00 pounds a night for a tent, booked myself this morning.
( I believe that the prices go up if you have a larger caravan or tent )

Scoop

Cheers I'll give you a get or email, managed to get the old motor out earlier, which was difficult trying to do through the small gap in the deck!

As for the duck... It was fine, worked brilliantly, then I tweeked it, and now no matter what I do I can't get it as it was, motor is now over heating. Might have it done for the weekend but not looking likely.

Is in charge/control of any slow IC boats running this weekend, what he says regarding these running is final. There is no 50/50, you can not ask the audience and you can not phone a friend.

Was taken with a finepix camera, and well, I thought 70+mph was fast for a model on its first run? ;)

Oh and Bill, the less said about the courtesy of the 'running' Stevenage members the better.

No problem with that. I am More then happy to check over your boats before you go on the water and help with any IC matters.
Any slow IC boats MUST have a working failsafe, Any boats that sound to loud will be checked. 80dB at 10 meters is the limit set by BMPRS and others so that what I'm using. Any IC boats that have bad rudder linkage controls IE to much flex in the rudder will not be aloud on the water at all.
We at Mayhem have had to fight hard over to last 6 mouths to get Slow IC boats on the lake. I Thank WMBC for letting us use the lake for SLOW IC boats at Mayhem But please don't let Mayhem down by having a unavoidable accident during the weekend we will not get a second chance to run IC boats if someone screws it up. :-))

Now lets go have some FUN FUN FUN & sunshine {-) {-)
Im lookin forward to that 1st beer on Friday night.

Do you have to pay per day to gain access to the park or is it free if you are paying to camp?

No! If you have paid for your camping and display your ticket they don't normaly bother you. If you want to go on the rides you have to pay for tickets or a band thingy but im sure your going there for thr rides :}
