I have been thinking what would I like to see at Ellesmere Port; Well maybe a little Springer event would be fun? I always attend on the Saturday so if I am missing one on the Sunday I apologise. Anyway it's a great show and thank you to all the organisers.

  Again two cross tugs coming in together not very often you see two fine models together. the IMG  1947&48 Ron from Canada told
  me that
  he brought this tug in his suit case type of flat pack & Ray Malone that's the guy with him built it up at his place in South End so
  he could bring it along to E/P

Again, brilliant photos and it really was a nice weekend, despite the weather putting some people off which is understandable.


 I hope you all got home safely!  :-))

A model built over the weekend by Miss Elizabeth fielding aged - afraid that I'm to much of a gentleman to reveal that, of the Southport Model Boat Club.

Many thanks to everyone who visited the show, we try our best.  The number of traders is, we believe, right for the show. One can get nearly everything needed for the modeller. It would be nice to see maybe only a couple more but 14 traders would be enough. Regarding the signage I can only apologise for the lack of it. It was agreed at our last meeting with the Museum that they would attend to that but it did not happen. A program was also produced by the museum for previous shows by the museum. (Come back john Inch, all is forgiven)!!! We are always open to suggestions as to ways in which we could improve the show, we always try to do our best. Please remember we are only model boaters like you, not proffessional show organisers.

    This has been passed on from Ellesmere Port Authority. They believe there is three people trying to get to Canada by giving a gift
    to a person so he will take them back with him. The thing is it's not there gift to give, shame on them {-) {-) {-)

First time at the show as a member of ELLESMERE PORT MBC.  Very impressed with effort by members and members of other clubs to get the place organised despite clod, wind and sleet on Friday. As someone new to the hobby I was impressed with the helpful attitude of the traders and their tolerance of a technical idiot.  Had passing conversations with bods from Balne Moor, Wallasey, Runcorn and a few other places all of whom were great ambassadors for the hobby.  Hope to see you all at the Boat Museum in 2017.
