Hi can anybody tell me what the parking situation is at the boat show, is it likely to be a problem or is there plenty of space?.

Hi guys. I've moved up in to the Mold/Chester area and I'm looking for a club to join up here, any recommendations? The show looks really good and I'm hoping to get to it. I'm returning to my boats after a while and I'm going to need some help getting things back on track so finding a good club would really help!  Thanks Pete :-)) :-)) :-))

Hi Pete

Welcome back to paradise, there are plenty of great clubs not too far away

Clubs local to you are:-

Small clubs at Gresford (Wrexham) and Ruthin. Colwyn Bay is a much bigger club and has a lot of members from your area.

Options over the border include Ellesmere Port, Hoylake, New Brighton and Wirral.

All of these clubs are friendly and will be more than happy for you to just pop along and see which you prefer before you deciding to join one. They are all happy to help with technical matters.

I am in Colwyn Bay MBC and we meet on Sunday mornings at Eirias Park; for the others, just check out their website/Facebook pages.

There is a rumour circulating that the clubs cannot set up until Saturday morning. This is NOT
 TRUE,  the traders will have priority to set up.  We will make every effort to help the clubs set up, especially in the Island Warehouse.

Great show, plenty of traders and many superb boats! Would of liked to have seen more boats on the water, maybe a bit too windy? Still, top effort by the organisers!

hi,
her is a few photos from ellesmere port today, it was flat calm when I got there at just after ten but by eleven the wind was quite strong. there was a few hardy ones though sailing yachts. the displays were a bit mixed up this year  nearly missed some displays due to no signs but other than that very enjoyable

Arrived home safely from another great day at Ellesmere, great to meet up with old friends again and I had a ball with the Jones bairns  O0
Have to echo Dave's sentiment about Mr Woolley, was great seeing you out and about after your illness Dave, take care of yourself and hope to see you again soon my friend.
Thanks to everyone for a great day, especially Dave and Kelly and hope to see you all again soon.
All the best... Bri.
Big kiss to Catherine and Bethan :kiss:

I think it is a sad sign of the times to see numbers slowly declining over the years.  Traders, clubs and the public numbers all seemed to be noticeably down again with mid Saturday afternoon looking dissapointingly quiet.  This is one of the best venues on the calendar yet we still see numbers declining and I suspect that there will be more traders questioning whether the takings are justified by the time and expense involved in attending.

I remember in previous years the inclusion of RC trucks and even scale plastic kits so maybe it is time for the museum and the organisers to think a bit outside the box again and look critically at what can be done to reverse this trend.  Maybe it should become more wider encompassing and include RC aircraft, tanks, cars and trucks as well as static and scale areas of the hobby.  I think the time has come to rethink the structure of these shows before we see them slowly dissappear and try to get the highest levels of support from the venue.  Having the cafe out of action, no night sail and clubs and traders having to walk through mud and up staircases to set up are all going to leave negative impressions.  In the past the engine house was manned and engines were running and there were more areas of the museum available to view so surely it is also in the museum's interest to support this event better and promote themselves more positively.

I drove three hours either way and went home saddened to see such a decline in what was once by far and above the best event of the year.
