What about car park charges, will visitors to the show log their car registration at the desk as last
year so they won,t be charged.

Hi John


There are over 800 parking spaces at the hotel which are FREE to those visiting the show. Note: There is a parking charge system in operation at the car park, DO NOT PAY FOR PARKING, just give us your car registration number as you come into the venue so that it can be entered into the system. There is also additional free on-street parking nearby.
[/size][/color]
The show takes place on the ground floor of the hotel & there is level access from the car park for wheelchair users.
I will be updating some facts etc in the next week or so

Just remember lads and lasses that there is a Mahoosive Bring and buy at Blackpool with proceeds of each sale going to the RNLI....and the last couple of years this has raised well over 2k !!!!! and that equates to a lot of boats being sold.


There is a distinct possibility I will be bringing around 100 boats ranging in size from 18ins to a 7 foot Yacht........Depends if i can sort out the logistics of this one,there will also be some unstrated kits as well.


This show will definitely this year be diverse as there will be wooden models boats cars Rc Trucks and a  slot car track.....with a 1st prize each day for the fastest lap of the day.....proceeds of this will go to the RNLI.


Parking YET again will be FREE.....make sure you write your car registration down at the Show Entrance PLEASE enter this correctly as the Organisers will NOT be held responsable if you write it down incorrectly.

OK, just done a bit of updating on the web site. I think that all should now be working - it could be a little slow at times due to the server that it is hosted on, but not much I can do about that just now.
Advance tickets are a little cheaper on the site:
One day pass £6.00 (£6.50 on the door)
Weekend pass £9.00 (£10.00 on the door)
There are still accommodation & show entry packages available:
Double or twin room B&B (Fri & Sat nights) with 2x weekend show passes £165.00
Single room B&B (Fri & Sat nights) with 1x weekend show pass £90.00
There are also a limited number of disabled access single, double & twin rooms available.

You can also add extra nights (Thursday or Sunday) for £55 B&B we can also do family rooms, evening meal etc, all at rates below the published rate for the hotel.
If you have any issues with the web site, just give us a call on 01248 719353 during office hours (or leave us a message at other times) or drop us an e-mail to info@blackpoolmodelshow.co.uk

As for the event itself, the venue is now full! so anyone thinking of sending in a last minute booking form could be disappointed. That is 2,700 square metres of exhibit space, filled with models & model traders, a number of whom are coming to Blackpool for the first time. Looks like being another great year.

Title: Re: Blackpool Model Show 2019
Post by: Iain on September 25, 2019, 10:18:51 AM
I may regret asking this, but there is a possible choice of dates for next year, so I would be interested in any opinions....

In theory the dates would be the 17th & 18th October 2020 as that is essentially the same weekend as we currently have. This puts it a full week before half term & also clashes with the Midlands Model Engineering Show, but because it is away from half term it could make accommodation at places like the Premier Inn cheaper.

The following weekend of the 24th & 25th October 2020 is currently available at the Norbreck, this avoids the clash with the Midlands Engineering event, & also puts the show at the first weekend of half term (for most kids) so this weekend would seem to be the better option - however, this then puts the show just 2 weeks before the Warwick model coat show, maybe that is too close? Neither option is 100% perfect, but I am thinking the 24th/25th would be the better bet?

Post by: Colin Bishop on September 25, 2019, 10:46:23 AM
Iain,

It's nice to see an organiser adressing this point for once.

In the past, too many shows have lost support as their organisers have refused to acknowledge or co operate with others to make the most of a nationally declining clientele. When there are clashes or events staged closely together then most people will go to one or another but not both. This can lead to one show going under and the other being significantly weakened. We have seen this on a number of occasions.

I fear that having Blackpool and Warwick within two weeks of each other could harm both. Something else to consider is whether the Haydock event will go ahead next year following what appears to have been a significant drop in numbers this year. If not then are there opportunities to move Blackpool to an earlier date away from Warwick? Warwick itself is experimenting with a two day show this year as the three day event appears to have become unviable. A further drop off in footfall at Warwick could put that show into doubt as well.

I'm not sure how significant school holidays are in the overall scheme of things. At shows I have attended there has been only a small presence of youngsters which may be regrettable but there is no doubt that it is the over 65s who produce the income and which determines the viability of the show.

Although I would like to, I will not be attending Blackpool. Driving to Haydock from down here in Surrey was a total nightmare at nearly 7 hours and not something I wish to repeat at my age. I do wish the show every success though.

Colin

Title: Re: Blackpool Model Show 2019
Post by: Iain on September 25, 2019, 11:46:20 AM
From when I first "inherited" the Blackpool show I have tried to avoid clashes, as that will always have some degree of negative effect on both shows, unfortunately it isn't always possible. The Norbreck is a busy venue & most weekends there are events taking place. In 2020 there is no availability at all in September & only the 2 weekends currently being discussed are available in October. There is some availability in August, but that then interferes with people's summer holidays (my own included) plus there is the Haydock show on the August bank holiday weekend (assuming it happens in 2020)
I have looked into other possible venues where there might be availability at other times, but as far as Blackpool is concerned there is only the Winter Gardens with enough space to take the event, the problem then comes with parking & loading as it is in the town center without any real on-site parking.
I think that we are limited to the 2 weekends at the end of October, it is just a case of which is the better option....
Title: Re: Blackpool Model Show 2019
Post by: big_bri on September 25, 2019, 12:00:54 PM
Just my personal opinion, but the earlier dates would suit me and my family Iain. I would really like to take in both Blackpool and the Warwick events this year. the 24th/26th would be too close for us.
Title: Re: Blackpool Model Show 2019
Post by: DaveM on September 25, 2019, 12:02:27 PM
I'm bound to wonder how many folk visit both shows (apart from the traders, that is). They are 160 miles apart and one venue might well suit some but not others e.g the good Admiral Sir Colin Bishop....and me. Trying to avoid a clash or even a partial one may be just wasted effort if only a handful of stalwarts like Big Bri have both dates in their diaries. 

Is there perhaps scope for a survey here on Mayhem?
DaveM
Title: Re: Blackpool Model Show 2019
Post by: Colin Bishop on September 25, 2019, 12:22:36 PM
Thanks for the comments Iain, I appreciate it is a difficult issue with no easy answers. And it's not just the punters either, you need to maintain a good level of support from traders and clubs to complete the triangle. (further complication is that Deans and MMM are now staging their own events to cut costs.)

As far as Blackpool/Warwick are concerned, one is in the North, the other in the Midlands. Given that the 'centre of gravity' of model boating these days is probably somewhere between the two, and much stronger than down South then people living between the two may well choose one or the other. As Dave says, maybe a survey might give some indication of people's intentions. The Forum does have a 'poll' facility.

A really difficult one Iain, I don't envy you trying to please traders, exhibitors and of course the paying public, but I admire you for trying.
Whatever date you decide, I'll try my damnedest to attend both. Blackpool is the closest to me so, I'll definitely be there :-))

Since I asked the question, perhaps i should offer an opinion.  Stick to the equivalent weekend to those you already use. Ie 17, 18 October.  I am not sure how much support you will loose being a fortnight after thr Midland show which is after all an Engineering show, not a primarily model show.  Either way the sooner you decide and PUBLISH the better.  The Post Office and other employers are requiring bids for holidays in 2020 already, delay could loose you customers!.
Anyway thank you for what you are doing and good luck for next year.

Title: Re: Blackpool Model Show 2019
Post by: malcolmfrary on September 26, 2019, 11:43:26 AM
Ever since the show moved to the Norcalympia, it has stayed on the equivalent weekend as far as possible. The problem there is that the calendar moves by a day or so every year, so every 7 years or thereabouts the show has to take a large step to keep in the same range of dates. 
That, and the availability of the venue. 
When the original date was agreed a lot of years ago, the offer was either the 3rd weekend in October, or sometime in February.  We picked October.  After that, it was always the case that confirmation of the availability of the venue by the venue owners for the following year happened during show weekend.  We are not the only people who use the place.

Hi All, It is with great disappointment that I have to let you know that unfortunately Macs Mouldings will not be able to attend the Blackpool show this weekend. Mrs Macs has been very unwell and we have been in and out of hospital all week with her. Sorry for any disappointment this may cause, we are absolutely gutted we cannot be there.
Hope everyone has a great show and hopefully we will see you all at Warwick in a few weeks.

A Nice little trip up to the Blackpool Model Boat Show., Met up with old and new faces and some good conversations, and  although it is not my particular scene at the moment there were also some great Tank,truck & Railway displays and the slot car racing which I unfortunately did not have a go on as was distracted and then had to go.  Bring and buy was very busy when I saw it.


So something for every body.


A few Pics.

That three deck split of the trawler is really cool and the vintage RCS transmitter reminded me of my first experiences with rc.

Thanks to everybody who turned up and helped what i thought was the best show for a long time.
Some pictures of the boats that were judged to be winners that I managed to grab between finishing the paperwork and getting ready to hand the prizes out.  Thanks again to all those who took the time to fill the forms in and hand them back.  All very worthy winners, from a huge mass of superb models.

The show just gets better once again my personal thanks and indeed from all the Rawdon club.  The accommodation at the hotel was good, and booked through the show as well.  Hope to see you next year !
Thanks again  Jim Worner

...Hi Guys...

A Massive Well Done & Thanks to Stav & Ian for a great weekend at the show...


I spent most of both days meeting friends old & new and looking at the Fantastic Displays...


It is very difficult to keep a 12 year old interested in modelling but this show helped a lot in entertaining Harry...He is already asking about next years show...


...Best Regards & Thanks...Norry & Harry Mason...

Many thanks to all who came to Blackpool, hopefully you enjoyed the weekend.The numbers attending were up a shade on 2018, which means that a small profit was made, something that will be re-invested into the show for next year - it is not run to make a profit
I have set the date for the 2020 show as the weekend of the 17th - 18th October, so you can add this to your diary.Anyone who is interested in exhibiting (or trading) & has not done so before, should send me an e-mail to info@blackpoolmodelshow.co.uk and I will forward details once I get around to doing them - most likely to be in the New Year.

I have just updated the gallery page of the Blackpool Model Show website with some pictures from this year. Here is a link straight to the page: https://www.blackpoolmodelshow.co.uk/gallery/ (https://www.blackpoolmodelshow.co.uk/gallery/) It is slow to load though, so do be patient, this is partly due to the number of images, but also due to the rubbish server that it is on - something that I will address in due course.

All one can say is excellent something for all to admire and inspire to in the future. But without the dedication of  show organizers this brilliant show would not happen so well done looking forward to 2020.
