I'm hoping to have 20 litres of "Dark destoyer" homebrew ready.

My last brew started as standard bitter with 24 tps of ginger powder to make ginger beer and then i used high tolerance wine yeast to take it to 9.5% abv.

The "Destroyer" has refinements to make it a "best" bitter, but it should brew out to about 10 or 11% abv

Just hope it's ready

Contrary a bit of mischievous postings on here by a couple of old soaks .... and a few not so old!

The Mayhem Model Boat Rally at Wicksteed is a 'tea total' family orientated event.


The emphasis as previously will be on:

Bring your boat and have a sail with like minded modellers from all over the country.
Sit and have chat,
See the club displays,
Meet the MPBA,
Meet the manufactures,
Buy your bits from all the Traders, (phone your orders in ahead of time and I'm sure you can avoid postage costs!)
Enter the fun events, Static display, First time builds, Steering, Straight running, Springers, Yachts & Footies,
Tug towing, Club 500 racing - nothing too serious though!  ok2

This is a participation event, you've sent all that time and/or money on that model... come and show it off!.
There will be a 'bring your own' Bar B Q & beer on Saturday evening and a night sail (so put some Christmas lights on your boat).

But most of all, come, relax, put your feet up, have  sail, have a snooze, see all the boats, chat to or avoid as many people as you want!!

See you there and all the Tea, coffee and biscuits are all on SteamboatPhil & I !

Regards,
 Martin - Model Boat Mayhem

PS. Discount park entrance voucher available here on Friday.

Sound like a good plan to me Martin.
Do you think those nice chaps at Model power can bring a charged up battery for my boat. I will email them soon and place my order. Yes tea & coffee for me all day.
Did you ask if there is any chance of a run on the big lake for us petrol heads Martin??
I have ordered the sunshine all weekend so it's bound to rain.
If you are thinking of comming along then don't delay on a Brillo weekend doing what we like best.

We will be there sometime Friday. We are all looking forward to seeing everyone again. Hopefully the weather will be better than the last two times I was there!!!!!

We will also be putting our new tug semi-kit through its paces throughout the weekend.

Mark, Angie and Hannah.

Almost forgot Hannah will be helping Phil with his straight running demo (or is that beating him again!!!!!) :-)) :-)) :-))

As the event gets closer I feel its time to get a few boats out, and think of a pile of excusses why I keep getting beat at straight running----maybe there is something to this new fangled wireless control type thing---hummmmm.

Of course its tea total----then the sun goes down  O0

Will have my new toy with me---clue---Mr Dean-----Beale Park------one or two much loved 20 notes   ok2

Will we be having a bring and buy ?

Right better start loading the car--could take a while
And just to show you how upto date our club is, we do run this wireless control thing----see  :-))

Martin,

I must appologise, I did not intend my beer post to suggest the event might be a boozy weekend away. One of my other hobbies is brewing and in a rather cack handed way i was trying to show what can be done with a little imagination. I have re-read my post and can now see how it may have read to other members.

Once again appologies to all who may have been worried by my post.

Lee

No need to apologize old man,  <*<

Mayhem at Wicksteed is a Fun Family event and we want everyone to come, meet old friends, make news one,
sail your boat, sail someone else's boat, watch other people sail their boats, look in awe at the boats on display,
chat with fellow modellers, meet the traders, enter the fun competitions... eg, beating SteamboatPhil at Straight
running , etc, etc, etc......



.... and then in the evening when the park has closed, and the Bar B Q starts,  Stavros sets fire to his table, then you
 may , if you all been good Mayhemers, have a small bottle of grog!

BTW:  I'm now in round 6 or negotiations with 'Mrs Mayhem' for a chicken curry/stew/casserole/cock-au-vin for the Bar B Q.   :-))
