Hi Everyone,


We are getting close to the show now so here's a little prompt for you all. I'm pool manager again this year (as well as providing the PA system) and some of you may recall that in 2012 we allocated a slot to unusual vessels ..... in fact anything that was wacky, weird, unique or good for a laugh. This slot ended up being referred to as "Steve's speciality slot". I'm really keen to do this again this year, therefore, if you have anything on your stand that fits this loose description then we'd love to see it on the pool.


Hey, Stavros, how about your 'Baby' themed vessel that you had at Wicksteed.  Maybe this time with a real Baby !!!!!


Look forward to seeing you all at poolside.

OH dear me what can I say well when Mrs Stav read this I can not possibly comment on what she said BUT one comment was Well I suppose we could go down..................AT least I would have a slot on the itenarry and use the pool....AS A BIRTHING POOL  O0 O0 O0 O0 {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-)
 
Well that would defo go down as Steve's SPECIAL SLOT wouldn't it..........Also with only a week to go to Kelly giving birth we wont be there BUT if it comes early we MIGHT just well make it Pram in Hand with L plates on it.........At least this year I could create havoc with a Pram and not a boat and that would be a novelty

If Del-Boy puts a boat on the water that will be a "speciality slot".   :} :}

Hi Paul,


I saw Del at the Midlands ME show today ..... he shocked me by telling me that you have been downsizing the fleet. Steady on old chap this is not good news.


'STEVE'S SPECIALITY SLOT'


Latest up-date on the Speciality Slot ........ the Knightcote MBC have a fleet of tiny little boats called Diana's and an exquisite little Huntsman in 1/48 scale (these will be on sale at the show from Speedline) and today I've agreed with them to  get as many of their members as possible to put these boats on the pool. Adrian of Speedline showed me a Huntsman with twin very small brushless motors and Lipo cells ..... it's a real
cutie !


Let's hear from more you.


Cheers
Steve

Hey Steve
I've got some mini straight runners, I could cause a bit of havoc with those.
Had Del on my stand at the ME helping me out....will he come over to the dark side of straight running.......well from what he was muttering when he left....I don't think so.. {-) {-)

Hi Steve

Whilst maybe not directly related to the Steve's Speciality Slot in the way of wacky and weird but me and my Dad would like to display our unusually large (7ft 3in long) and very different looking model of an Insect class river gunboat called HMS Gnat on the water this year- I've been practicing and considering the size of the model I can get her to do some pretty amazing turns at slow speeds, only problem is that nobody else should use the water whilst we are on- not because of the size of the Gnat but because I won't be very happy if anyone runs into my very exposed rudders (it's bad enough when I run into them! :embarrassed: ). Fingers crossed she will look the part on the pool this year! :-))

High Nick,


Thanks for your message. I'm sure we all would love to see your model on the water. It would be no problem to fix you a slot to have the pool to yourself .... we did this for Paul Chilcot last year we his stunning model of the turbine powered FinnJet. Come and see me at poolside first thing on Friday morning and we'll work something out.
Look forward to meeting you.
Cheers
Steve

Nick, your boat would make the perfect straight runner ( I told you so)
In that case Steve...I have this steam straight runner......oh well maybe not.....

Thanks Steve- see you bright and early on Friday morning


Hi Phil- have seen my Dad's latest project? He has decided that if it doesn't turn it will become a straight runner! O0 {-)  It's 7.5ft long monster but only 7.5inches wide and deep!


See you all there, not long now to wait, I have booked my leave well in advance, not missing it this year for anyone or anything- even penguins! :-))

Sadly,I have decided not to attend this year,even though I enjoyed it so much last year.My dear wife who is my driver and who has taken me all over the country this year fundraising for the RNLI, and I have decided its a "bridge too far" for us.
As the theme this year seems to be the Blue Riband,I was hoping to bring my newly acquired model of the Cunard Liner "Queen Mary"
which has various operating features.Sadly I was too late to get a space,but hopefully next year!
        Of course this means there will NOT be any Lemon Curd Sponge this year either! YUMMIE,MORE FOR ME!

Hi Guys,
I am sorry to let you all down this year but due to my ill health, I won't be at the Show. <:( So Phil, your 20 note is safe from me again - damn!! :-))

To all of my loyal customers that came and purchased at my stand in previous years, I say 'Pick up the phone and spend your hard earned cash with me' You know it makes sense. I may not be there in person but I will be thinking of you all. It will be the first one I have missed since the show started but my Cherry says it will be nice to be at home in the warm and watch the telly.

A message to the people that take over my stand space next to Martin, be good and treat your customers with the care they deserve, they are important. O0 But, If they are not good to you then give them a good clout round the ear and send them packing to Ron Dean. {-)
Best regards
Graham

All the tea is on Steamboat Phil this year as Graham is not there to take the 20 note so it has been decreed that Phil Buys ALL THE TEA

Argh now Stav, I have a tale of great woe...read on dear Mayhemers......
I have just had some major dental surgery, this has left me....how can I put it...oh yes :embarrassed:
having to remain a little silent, due mainly to the fact that my new bacon choppers did not fit  <:(
this means lots of tea purchased by sympathetic mayhemers who will not be singing "all I want for xmas is my two front teeth" (and the rest of them for that matter).
So unless I can make myself a set before Friday no sentences will have an "S" in. Still plenty of time for me to learn a few bits of sign language...and soup for dinner it seems (again)
