Hi everyone

Mass rumours of me missing in action, disappeared and or planning to take over the world are wildly inaccurate! %)
I'm still alive and kicking, and I've been sorting things out at my end for this weekend.

I do have to ask the following:

If you can fit a table in your vehicle I'm asking if you can please do so.

This year there will be not so many available due to two large weddings over the same weekend who will be using the same tables as we do. Once the park have finished dressing the function rooms we will find out how many extra tables we will receive on top of the 10 to 15 we've been promised.

Other than that, the van has been loaded with the gazebos, tables, cups, signs and very importantly the BBQ!

Well the battery charging marathon under way and last minute paint job to the boats before heading tomorrow. We have an orange fire ball in the sky in Glasgow so will try and take it with us. :-))

Plus transmitter.  And don't forget to put batteries on charge whilst sorting out your camping stuff.  %%

Phil doesn't need a transmitter for his boats they only tend to go in a straight line (or at least try to) :-))

Hi everyone ....... unfortunately I can't make it to Wicksteed this year. Hope you all have a brilliant couple of days.
Looking to the future ..... November and the International Model Boat Show ..... maybe you can all spread the word that once again this year there is the opportunity for TEN non-club entries to exhibit. The selection we had last year was excellent and we are on the look out for ten new exhibitors. So if you don't belong to a Club or maybe your Club doesn't display at the show then this is your chance to join in. Just send me a personal mail via this Forum or call Meridienne Exhibitions on 01926 614101 and ask for Jayne Mansell.
Also ...... as this year is the 300th anniversary of James Brindley, the famous canal builder, the show is working in conjunction with Canal & River Trust (CRT) to mount a display in celebration. As part of this we plan to have a mass sailing of model narrowboats each day. So again, spread the word among all your Clubs. It would be useful to have an indication of who's likely to take part therefore a PM via the Forum would be very helpful.
Once again have a great Wicky Weekend.
Steve Dean. (IMBS Pool Master & Commentator)
