Words well said Mark.
I was racing against Kian and Luke in the A-Class race and their driving skills were excellent with lots of confidence evident. Very well done to both of you. :-))
It is good to see a good mix of ages involved and if we have more junior members about join in, us more senior members may have to up our game to stay competitive! :-)) :-))
Cheers
Craig

On behalf of Kian, thanks guys. I showed him your kind words.

Hope to be at Telford, and see those who can make it, on Sunday.


Cheers:
Ian

Looking good Daz. If I ever get time to make a cowl for my "one of them" (AMPS SX-100), I might give it a run.
Only got three boats to fix for Kingsbury........

Hi Daz, remind me to get a photo of Boyd and his new boat at Kingsbury for my BMPRS MB mag articles, I'm dead keen on promoting the youngsters getting in on our hobby, we seem to be having a few joining us this season along with their mums and dads. All good for the future of model boating whether they end up in Scale, Yachts, F.E. or I.C. it's all a foot in the door so to speak :-)) :}
 
Cheers
