What a great weekend we had at Alfold, great weather on Sunday, the pond was dead calm and tranquil, and a good turn out of clubs as always .
Special thanks to the Colson family for all the hard work they put in to making sure we enjoy ourselves over the weekend .

I concur...what a nice weekend. We were there on the Sunday, warm, sunny, nice people throughout. And, and, and...we won Best In Show, for the Team, cheers guys, complete surprise :-)) ....Best In Show does sound like something you would get awarded at Crufts though..its not like we had any well presented Pugs or Pit Bulls or the like.


On reflection though!!

USS Kitty Hawk. Many working functions including fast jets spooling up engines, Phalanx guns firing with light effects to suit, plus a hell of an air group on board. It won Best Warship and I expected it to win Best Of Show, however we had Pugs, no contest!!

A quick view down the rows of gazebos revealed fourteen clubs in attendance on Sunday.

No names, but maybe you need to invest in a shorter set of banner supports or taller tables! See you guys in a fortnight at Sumners Ponds %) ...Nice boats hiding behind though...

"Its a bird? Its a Plane?"
Its a plane, PBY, or Catalina flying boat. Wings clipped due to the nearby Dunsfold (Top Gear) aerodrome. Still, it acquitted itself well with fast taxi runs instead.

He made up for it with this most impressive 1?72 scale Batch 3 Type 22 Frigate. Fitted with active stabilizers connected to the rudders, we had a long chat about improving the stability of the model. Once in the water it proved to be a moot point...very effective damping with the four stabilizers in action. Forget everything I suggested!

I enjoyed our visit to the 20th show, long may it continue. It was a pleasant change not to be running around preparing pyrotechnic displays, putting up speakers, doing borderline offensive commentaries, etc.
Still, all that to come in two weeks at Sumners Ponds..plus the Dabblers may throw me in the pond :}
