I'm up for it. I don't know anyone from the forum, but would quite happily contribute some BBQ items and beer. Do you BBQ individually or as a communual group?

Everythings done as a communal group (apart from using the w/c's etc.....) ;)

I know in the past forum members have asked about a Mayhem badge, I presume this is in case they forget their name after the BBQ %% %% %% %% %%. This one is mine, just alter the details print and the job is a good un, as they say :-)) :-)) :-)) O0 O0 O0

Yes. I publish that later this week. Half price Park entrance fee - 6  3

Don't forget, Chingdevil will be running the Springer competitions.
 They will also be Footie racing, Scale towing, Club 500, Warship patrols, Lifboat boys, OMRA Power Boat display, Seaport tug display - we do need a few Kettles Steam boats to put on a display!

 Awards for Springer winners, Club 500 race boats, voted favourite boat, steering competition, most ambitious project, furtherest travelled visitor, best kit build or conversion, anyone that beat SteambBoatPhil at straight running, funniest sinking of the weekend, best joke or laugh of the weekend, best banger from a bar b q and other awards to be decided on the spur of the moment, after studious and in depth consideration.

What a Model Boat Mayhem Cap, shirt or fleece? Steamboat Phil will be bringing an arm full!

Sorry guys, corrected. Not OMRA, although they are most welcome, as well as NOMRA (National Offshore Model Racing Assn).

.... there will be a POWER Boat Display.

......... "Smell my exhaust pipe!"


PS. Andy, do you fancy helping me with a simple steering course?

No problem, thanks for the clarification Martin.
Andy and Bill will be there all weekend flying the flag for NOMRA (might be renamed very soon ... ), a few others and I will be coming for Saturday (racing on Sunday, I'm afraid).
I think both of them will have problems with running any course on the Wicksteed lake - they've both got faster boats than last year  :o :o
My "Bear" went into hibernation and has refused to get up (lazy so-and-so) so will not be putting in an appearance this year (the hull is now doing a sterling job of supporting part of a new local housing estate  %) )
We may have to get some of these "club 500" thingys - after all, we're only there for the FUN  {-) %% {-) %%

Cheers
Danny

Friday I'm there to set up so give me something to do and I'll do it (within reason of course ;) )

I'll also run the IC demo again if you like, provided I don't have to do the PA bit...

Best place for it I think... %)

Don't worry about the PA bit Andy. I will be there from Friday eve till Sunday afternoon & I will be happy to do it.
Danny is right My new boat will be on show ONLY this year. The lake is just to small. However if we get the use of the big lake out the back then we could give it ago.  Got my Thames boat nearly done now so it will be there and Oscar springer, Gas Springer + my Nomra boat.
Oh yes If you look in Model boat mag last month and again this month you can see some brill pics of my new NOMRA (soon to changed name) boat.
