Just spent a good few hours at the show. Mrs had a go with the boats on the pool. My 3 yr old enjoyed trying them out aswell in the kiddie time. They now both got little hulls to make up

IT sems to me that Phil is starting a new trend in club stand of having sweets food tins and dental accessories on his stand......I really am begining  to WORRY about Phil these days.

It seems to me that all this steam fumes are getting to him  {-) %%

Stop press news from the Pool Masters all seeing view point.

Mrs Stav was verbally arm twisted to having a go in the Children's hour along with 5 other ladies. We asked Catherine for her view on her mums boat steering capabilities and she replied, "goo, goo, ga, ga, goo, ugh". Which in Welsh translates to "crap but better than my Dad!"

Much more worrying ...... despite help from MI5 and Interpol we have been unable to identify the suspicious bloke wearing a shirt & tie who spent 6 hours on Friday taking photographs !!! Informants say he is connected with some kind internet activity and the appropriate agencies have contacted GCHQ to monitor communications.

Also we have to report the theft of silverware. A gang from a spec of wind blown rock in the Irish Sea have blagged a piece of shiny metal for the second year in a row. Rumour has it they are planning to return in 2015 to complete a hat-trick. How do we stop them? Answer's please on a small floating piece of balsa!

And finally .... on the MACS mouldings stand there were a selection of new 1/12th figures including a lady named Maxine, who (putting this as delicately as possible) was of good size proportions. Apparently Phil fell in love and purchased six but they made his boat capsize!

More scandal will follow after the last day.

Steve.

I'm sure that Maxine will be affordable - going for a thong I think.

As for Martin, an absolute disgrace, plain shirt and tie - what is the world coming to? I did ask him to remove the latter as it was a risk if he bent over moving machinery but I must give him full credit for not dangling it in the steak and kidney. (mind you, the rate that it disappeared it was not altogether surprising).

Anybody thought of calling a doctor?

If MARTIN has a tie it is certainly the sign of a serious illness. <:(

Some years back I inquired about a particular model, The James Braidwood
(See Thread below)
http://www.modelboatmayhem.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,13709.msg131023.html#msg131023

In all the shows I have been to, I have never noticed one on display, I had been advised that only 50 or so were made. Anyway today a model took my eye as I new I recognised it from somewhere but was not sure, speaking to members of the Bournville club on who's stand it was displayed, the owner had purchased it a while back at the Blackpool show but had no further info.

So a definite visit worth while for me.

With my shiny new knashers firmly stuck in, I shall be conducting investigations today to find the certain miscreants who adorned my stand with left overs from harvest festival....plus the odd sweet (hard centres >:-o )
You know who you are....be aware these are my chatting teeth.....you could be steam talked to death  {-) {-) {-)
Stand by for another great day at the show, steamboat apprentice will be with me today, so at least I will have a look out.....

Gosh, with all this technology you don't really need to go to the show anymore!

But then they would get no entrance fees so there wouldn't be a show.
