I won it as a prize at school - they let me choose it. It is still a good reference source in many ways.

Looking forward to this year, we are in the process of sorting everything out at the parks end with regards to the camping and the usual.


Iím going to put the ad in the Model Boats magazine diary so the whole community knows the what, where, and when.
Once again we are having a Springer battle for those wishing to take part, the Secret 10 are doing a thing again- find out what on the Saturday afternoon!, and I think we were discussing a few months back about a Fairey fleet of Huntsman, Huntress and Swordsman. Would everyone like to me to mention this in the ad? And will people bring them along for the weekend if we do?  I know we donít tend to have 100% organised events for the weekend but if I mention it are we going to have an uptake of members sailing or displaying them?
Itíll be a month before I send it off to the editor so Iíd appreciate some feedback of ideas and anything youíd be interested in bringing. :-))

If I remember correctly (Klunk will have the full set of rules) it was a standard sized springer hull made from either balsa or foam. No reinforcements such as GRP etc. No projectiles or explosives to be used as weapons. 500 motor with a maximum of a 7.2v battery. I think that was it. It was a good laugh last year! %%

Hi Dan


Gllad you are planning to make the pilgrimage!


We have a harbour area with two docking berths that are used for launching and tethering models when you need a rest. If you need a lift there are plenty of us who will give assistance and we have club trolleys for moving them from the car park to the lake.
Hope this is of help.

Yes, the lake has a lovely path all around it that gives easy access to the water, and the harbour is excellent. Deffo ask if you need a hand, its a great crowd that attends 'Wicky'.
