In recent years it's actually seemed to be quite dry in the spring, so all the talk is of the coming drought, then it turns out to rain for the next 6 months :)

But 4/5 May is a bank holiday weekend, so rain is probable regardless :(

Well, after all the flooding the water receded and left us with a layer of mud and silt which we have almost finished digging out. Luckily it was nowhere as bad as earlier this year but we have half a lake which is sparkling clean where there is no mud whatsoever just don't look at the other end where its about 1/2 inch deep! :-) 


Everyone at Wicksteed Park is looking forward to the Mayhem next year which from what I hear will be the Whit weekend (Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 of May, 2013). So nice clean lake and my soul has apparently been sold to some penguins to pay for some good weather! Happy Mayheming everyone!

Hi Martin,
The Model Hovercraft Association is considering coming to the Mayhem bash this year, although we have the Hovershow at Gosport the weekend before, so depends whether we can muster enough support. Will there be an event details posting at some point, or is it literally a turn up and sail do?
 
Cheers,

Hi Phil


Good to hear from you again, to reply to your post on the empty lake at Wicksteed the lake will be filled up soon, I don't think we have to worry about a water shortage!
There will be plenty of penguins to see (and hear) this year, I have a penguin which my dog hates with a vengeance  ;)  and I'm certain every one at thenMayhem will come to love or hate! %%

North Wales salt marsh lamb is one of the best meats that I have ever tasted, :-))
I use my local butcher who sources all his animals from local farms and kills them behind his shop himself.
He says Wales is too far to go for a bit of lamb  :((
Looking forwards to a dryer Mayhem 2013, or should we all bring life jackets this year.  :}

Good news everyone


The lake has been refilled, we had a bet to see how long would take to fill up, needless to say I lost the bet by two days but Nigel Marriott the lake manager was the closest! We put the bung in on Saturday afternoon and it was full by Wednesday afternoon!
Wicksteed Park are going to repair the damaged concrete edging in the next couple of weeks so the lake should look fantastic for the Mayhem weekend :-))


P.S save some of those sausages for me!

Needless to say, members of the Wickies club will be there on Friday to assist in tent sailing and wet foot events specifically run during the Friday set up!  {-)
Me, Steve and Paul will be there in the morning to help in any way, I'm sure everybody will hate penguins by the end of Friday!  %%  The penguin springer is on its way!
We'll ask WP management if there can be a discount, can't guarantee anything at the moment.
Looking forward to seeing everybody again, plenty to talk about and I'm sure I'll bore everyone to tears with how cold the Falklands were! :}

We used to get a printable voucher (negotiated by Martin)
for a two quid entry but it was not on last year.
Whatever Martin has or has not negotiated this year
it is still a cheap day out as the entry fee is per car.
so bring the family :-)) :-))

Nothing yet ... and they were very resistant last year but we'll enquire again.   :-)

NB: I think it's £6 per car.

.... what about if you're going to the Car Boot sale on Sunday, do you still have to pay?

Hiya everyone


Don't worry we are sending our best man to negotiate for a possible discount price for the Mayhemers! :-))


For anyone who wants to know what the price covers:


Car parking (obviously!)
Entrance to the whole park land
Covers entrance to the children's play areas
Any event organised by Wicksteed Park, such as car boot sales


If you want to use the larger attractions such as roller coasters then a wrist bands can be purchased from the entertainment booth.
Anyone camping or caravaning on the site has free entrance (wouldn't be fair to keep charging you to enter the park if you are using the campsite!  ;) )


All the the food, tea and coffee, toilets facilities are fully open, the coffee in the main cafe is very good if you like your different coffees- all fairtrade brands, tea is also available!


The new drainage system which surrounds the model boat lake seems to be working very well, the ground is dry as a bone, even with all that rain we have just had! (Sorry 'vertical mist!') {-)
By the way, the penguin springer is on its way, just wave or shout at it and it will put on a little show for you! {-) %%
See you there!

Hi Martin,
              I understand from the posts that you can turn up and sail (numbers and frequencies depending of course).   Does this apply to us submariners as well, or are there specific time slots that you have the subs in (or should i say under) the water.
Title: Re: Mayhem at Wicksteed 2013
Post by: Klunk on May 03, 2013, 05:43:37 AM
Turn up and sail! Hopefully there will be a few event like club 500 and some other things but generally it's down to you. If you need a table Luton model boat club can probably help out ie me! Stay away from the Scottish contingent, they only like warships, nit subs!

I do hope modellers will be careful of other peoples boats.  I remember a big boat doing a scale 80 kts last year that had those of us with scale ships rushing to get them out of the water before they got swamped and sunk by the wash. 
 
PS:  If all goes well this weekend I will be bringing a heavy warship with a huge brass reinforced ram 3 inches below the waterline.

The Mayhem Weekend Song;-
 
To be sung to the tune of “Singing in the Rain”
 
 
 
I'm sailing in the rain
 Just sailing in the rain,
 What a glorious feeling,
 It must be Mayhem  again.
 I'm laughing at clouds
 So dark, up above,
 The sun's in my heart
 But none up above
 
 Let the stormy clouds chase.
 Everyone from the place,
 Come on with the rain
 Martin has a smile on his  face.
 He walks down the lane
 With a happy refrain
 Just singing and dancing in the rain
 
 I’m sailing in the rain.
 Mayhem is at it again.
Through the mud we all tramp
The bbq is really damp
Caravans sail by
Gazebos fly high
 Just singing and sailing in the rain.
 
Brian

'Hello everyone, 

Nigel has just rung to say that someone has waded into the lake, cut the wire mesh  around the straw bales (weed control) and freed up the straw so that it is all floating on the water.  It is hard to believe that young vandals would have been responsible as they probably would not know what effect the straw had or would they have waded out to the centre of the lake. 

My guess is that the person(s) responsible were well prepared and possibly knew that Mayhem was less than a week away.  It may even have been the same people who smashed the shelf in the shelter earlier in the week. There is [a good] possibility that some activity in the lake area may have been caught on the cameras.

Please, if you can, come to the lake tomorrow (Sunday) and help out in any way you can.  We have about 3 rakes so any more would be helpful, plus anyone who has waders to get into the water.

An update will be available at the meeting Monday night and further working parties are a certainty for next week.

Maureen - A/ club sec.'

is it possible to find a large fishing net, to turn around the straw to the circle like fishing

Considering that yesterday me and Dad (Steve) with Nigel and Maureen cleared the lake up in preparation for the mayhem weekend, we are not best pleased.  >>:-( >>:-( >:-o
The incident will be reported to Wicksteed Park security and Management, Steve is not happy at all, whoever is responsible for this vindictive action will sought out and reported, we have a good idea who might have done it but its proving it, that's why we are hoping the cameras caught them entering the park or the car park but unless there's footage of them in the lake there's not much we can do either!
But we live in hope...  <*<
No one is going to stop us or the mayhemers having some fun next weekend  :-))  looking forward to seeing everyone again.


P.S. I will personally organise a Tornado GR4 tactical strike on the guilty person's house!

                  Should anyone that may see them sailing have any ideas, advice or assistance to offer for either rectification or improvement,  please don't hesitate to approach with same  - you'd be most welcome, after all, it's one of the reasons for joining Mayhem!    Regards, Tony. :-))

Quite tropical then, we`ve got slightly less than that.  Pic from BBC 1 o`clock Local News today.   Cockbridge to Tomintoul road snow-gates  closed, raining/sleeting at the moment at lower levels. Cold northerly wind.  Hope it isn't coming your way guys.

Everything's ready at Wicksteed.

Special thanks to the Wicksteed MBC for tiding up and clearing the lake... twice!

There's nothing on TV this weekend so charge your batteries up and come and sail your boat.
Come and see me crash someone else's boat.
See the flying gazebo display.

£6 per car to get into Wicksteed bot the Mayhem part is  FREE , as always.
... I'll be the bloke in the very sedate shirt!

Loving the glorious sunshine. Been helping by staying in the caravan with the aircon on full. Simply can't stand the heat. Don't forget your suntan lotion kids.
Although I do believe there may have been a tiny rain squall on the lake. Allegedly.

KEEP TELLING YOU ITS NOT RAIN, THIS YEARS VERSION, ITS THE NEW HORIZONTAL MIST,
 some people are never happy, they complain about last years vertical mist, so they change it and they are still not happy.
never mind, tomorrow the sun will shine and then we can complain about the heat haze from the water. Martin you are not wearing a loud enough shirt, that will move the clouds.

"Saturday is mixed but dry" actually means, whilst it might be alright to sail your boats, don't be too keen to look behind you...

Fantastic day 1, Martin has declared that sun will shine on the righteous. After yesterdays gale force winds and rain we can't believe a difference 24 hours has made. The lake was made good use of today enjoy some of the pictures I took of the boats I got to see (the ones I got around to seeing I should add, I ended up talking most of the day!!!).


A general view from the far end of the lake next to Blackheath club with Stavros and Steamboat Phil not at home leaving Kelly (Mrs Stav) guarding their stand.

Well we're home too  now, bellies full of very nice fish and chips from  Fishers in Hampton, (other brands and take away meals are also available!)

WHAT A WONDERFUL DAY!

I seemed to spend most of the time chatting about the weather, it seemed to be preoccupying
everybody's mind and we all just looked really puzzled all day!
'What that bright yellow ball in the sky?'
'Have we got the wrong weekend?'
'I don't get it what kind of dry,rain is this?'
'Have we all died and gone to heaven?'

Again a BIG thank you to the Wicksteed Park MBC, lake look wonderful and water almost crystal clear! Special name check for Steve, Paul, Nick, Nigel, Brian, Phil, Steph, Stavros, Kelly, JayDee, Alan, Dee, Chris, Doug, Andy, Ron.... and the other that I've neglected. Enjoy the beautiful evening everyone.

These photos will emphasize what you missed....
 But the weatherman says even better forecast for tomorrow!

Despite the chairman (Steamboatphil) doing the dirty on the apprentice, (Steph') by moving the straight running markers as far away as he could AND narrowing the gate to boot!  %) :o   like all good pupils though Steph' (using the boat she built herself )took up the gauntlet and showed the master how it's done ............... watch this for a straight ten!!   P.S.

Well BBQ is nearly finished, our Scottish contingent conned us all into cooking their food and repaid the debt with 18 year old laphroag whisky and another bottle t,at I haven't had a chance to sample, Phil is suffering after eating Encino pepper sauce and scotch bonnet sauce together! That does not bode well for the morning to those not present on Sat, you have missed a great days

Well what can I say why cook when you can drink and have someone else cook for you

A perfect sailing day indeed.  Sorry, but after preping the boat last night after a late shift at work I think I have somehow got silicone grease in the motors. By about 2 am I became resigned that I was not not going to fix it that night.  If I can get it going this morning I may head off for a PM visit, otherwise looking forward to seeing all your photos.

Hi Everyone,
 
I hope everyone is up nice and early and ready for the sunny day ahead.
It was nice to see you all yesterday. The weather was lovely and the atmosphere was brilliant.
A Team Boatyard have HMS Daring (type 45) there this weekend after her long and successful sail up and down the
non tidal section of the River Thames. A couple of war wounds, nothing a little make up can't fix.
Thank you to Mrs and Miss Mayhem for supplying all of us thirsty lot with tea and coffee. You both worked so hard.
The weather looks brilliant for today. Well worth a trip.
Have a brilliant day today and don't get sun stroke.
See you all soon.
Debs xx

Anne and I had a great day at Wicksteed yesterday - so, many thanks to Martin, WPMBC and all the helpers who made it possible and so successful. They did a great job with the weather too!

Phil certainly has a challenge on his hands with Steph’s achievement! A joy to watch - and so were all the other models.

Thanks to Ken for recommending a trial of the puffer on a wider stretch of water than the bathtub. After a patient wait to discover the availability of Channel 52 (I only have the one pair of crystals!), she was committed to the water. The result was that she still showed no sign of responding to the rudder when going astern. Apart from that, all was well and the unpainted woodwork stayed dry! I was also encouraged by several people assuring me that I am not alone with the problem.

We were very grateful to Colin and Bob tt1 for sharing their table space with us. Anne (who is especially fond of lifeboats) was particularly taken with the resuscitation instructions inside the cabin of Bob’s Alice Upjohn!

After Saturday I couldn't believe that Sunday could be better, how wrong was I!
Hello to Dodes and Shipmate60, its becoming an annual meeting for us! Love the little HMS Kent that Dodes gave me- its going pride of place next to the model when its finished. (fingers crossed! :-)) )


Many thanks to Martin for allowing us to make fun of his aztec shirt, but seriously, thank you Martin without you we wouldn't have had the show, we all look forward to the next one.


A big thank you to everyone who was there in body, and in spirit. (Stavros certainly looked like he was out of his body on the Sunday morning after the Scottish boys had finished with him and Phil!!!)


A big thank you to all who bought tombola tickets, I know towards the end Klunk was desperate to win that Tamiya King George V kit!!!


And another big thank you to the mayhemers who donated money towards the clean up of the lake, Paul (aka Chuffy) and WPMBC are very grateful for your donations.


And here as promised to Martin are the warship pictures I took of the fleet on Sunday... enjoy and heres to next year! :-)) ;)

Well, the Scottish boys (Colin, Brian, Dave and Ron)  arrived home safely around 5pm after the best Mayhem weekend ever.
We would like to thank Martin and all the hard working guy`s who made this weekend such a great success, a big "WELL DONE" to you all :-))
Also, to all our old friends (and new), a big thank you, for once again making us so welcome.
The sailing was great, the weather fantastic, but the company was even better, the BBQ was a riot as usual, with the wee drinkies flowing free.
Stav looked a little the worst for wear by the end of the night, but he and Kelly do have a lot to celebrate.
Phil and Steph were fantastic as usual, a big thank you to you both, for letting us commandeer your lovely caravan, to carry on having a laugh into the wee small hours.
After the whooping Steph gave Phil at the straight running and of course winning a Trophy  (did you know that Phil didn't win one, by the way %) ) we had a great time relentlessly reminding him of the fact {-) {-) {-) {-) . Phil of course, took it all in good stead.
It was a shame some of our old friends couldn't make it, but look forward to meeting you all again at the next Mayhem bash. :-))
We`re looking forward the next one already ok2

Just a quick note to thank you all for your kindness and hospitality over the Wicksteed weekend. As a Mayhem event newbie I had no idea what to expect, but thought the event was supremely well organised. Martin, his family, Dave and Kelly, "steamboat" Phil and his wife - were but a few of the folks who worked really hard to make the event the success it was.


Thanks also for the BBQ invite, an endless supply of food and drink, and also to the generosity of the Scottish contingent for the lovely 18 year old malt whisky too!


I have to admit, when I arrived on Friday, pitching my tent in a howling force 4 gale, I did have a "what the heck am I doing here" moment, but Saturday and Sunday saw fantastic weather, and I met some old chums and made some new friends also.


I am sure I have missed many people off the thank you list, but I really had a great time and the whole event was over all too quickly. Roll on next year.


Baloo might also like to know that the Waveney lifeboat I bought from him has now been ballasted and as had all the electrics added (thanks to Ron Dean for these and to Andy at Models by Design for the fenders and electrical hook up) and 44-021 had her first test-sailing yesterday too!

Following a fantastic Mayhem at Wicksteed the following highly researched scientific facts can be revealed:


1. Crap weather on a Friday is a sign of good times to come.
2. Martins shirts are brighter than the sun.
3. Mrs Davis makes a mean cup of tea.
4. Debbs cakes are still the best.
5. Being male and wearing rubber does not guarantee a prize.
6. Being an expectant father makes you design strange craft.
7. and finally ..... if you want good weather at your event then ask Guy Bagley to stay away!

Took him to Wicky and the Laphroaig would have

I didn't make it this year. i would like to take some of the blame of Guy. (my mate).
Seems if there is no petrol at the event then the sun comes out to play O0
I'm glad it all went well and much fun was had. I missed out but maybe next year. Anyway the laws of average says you have to get one dry show at some point, and this was the year.

Hello to Harvey Bagley ......... sorry to hear about your arm young man. Look on the bright side ..... when people asks if it hurts when you are at Alfold this coming weekend, just tell them that an ice cream makes the pain go away. No doubt Kim Belcher will want to take your photo, holding a transmitter with your arm in plaster ...... well tell him it will cost him a choc-ice, two cheese burgers and a large can of pop!


Enjoy yourself.  :-))


Steve.

A few afterthoughts and thanks from last weeks wonderful Weekend of Mayhem.

What brilliant and unexpected weather, phew!
Thanks to everyone that turned up with ... or without a boat!
Mrs Mayhem, Little miss Mayhem & Surly Asked Son - thanks for you effort guys!
JayDee kept me wonderfully entertained with stories, anecdotes and great on-liners!
Phil and Stavros for everything, particularly holding down the Marquee on Friday...
 .... when we thought we about to all fly off and meet the Wizard of Oz face to face!
Steph & Kelly for letting the boys out to play.
The Scottish contingent - irrepressible humour and enthusiasm.
Klunck for his first Human ferry across the lake.
Alfie (the dog) recognising Little miss Gina after meeting her once last year!!
The traders for turning up, not expecting to make a fortune but coming anyway!
Baloo for all the cakes on Saturday.
The Tombola SOLD OUT completely!
Wicksteed Park trustees & staff for being very helpful and cooperative.
Wicksteed MBC for clearing the lake and getting everything ready.
Maureen for keeping the Wicksteed club boys in-line and running a very successful Tombola!
- all our friends that couldn't make it this year -
 - I'll keep adding to the list as it comes back to me!

My favourite 'Boat of the day', Saturday was Mark Thatcher's Katherine.
Just happily minding it's own business, ignoring everybody else dashing about but
steadily plying it's own way...

Sundays 'Boats of the day' were Jaydee's J-class yacht.
Stately and majestic every time.

Surprise boat of the weekend was a late comer, didn't get a name but he brought along a little, noisy 'ebay' boat, in the style of a Riva Aquarama. It just kept going & going & going & going & going long after all 'ebay' boats should have stopped or even burnt out! He must have got 2 hours running out of that thing!  :o

... where a damn picture?

Hi Martin, you posted a picture of my boat at Mayhem but didn't know what it is.

Here are some more pictures and an original add, it's the MS Northern Star, I got her about a year ago and restored it from a pretty sorry state over the winter.
She was originally built as a straight runner around 1956, hence the large brass handles. Before I got her she spent at least 25 years on a shelf in the Ship inn in Eyemouth, Berwickshire so some sharp eyed member may have seen her before.
Once IC but now powered by a Volkwagen blower motor on a 12v lead acid she runs for a long time.
The restoration wasn't as easy as I expected as much of the ply had de-laminated but well worth the effort.

Roger
