St Albans & District Model Engineering Exhibition - 2018
« on: March 24, 2018, 11:16:09 AM »


Via email to Mayhem...


Hi everyone the show is back this year on Sat 29th & Sun 30th September.  We try to have the last weekend in September and hope to see as many as can get there.  Plans are in hand and with the great cooperation of the attending clubs to have the best show we can of most kinds of modelling.

Regars to all,
Roy

Hi all, I have emailed all the clubs that came last year. 
We do not charge anything for exhibiting at our show, just ask for a bit of help in clearing up on the Sunday.  Obviously the show is in St. Albans but if there is anyone local who I do not know about or lone boat modellers who would like to exhibit their boats contact me and we can see if we can make arrangements to suit both parties.

We have a few commercial traders but they are aware that sales are almost exclusively to exhibitors as the majority of visitors are the local population with their children, 400+ last year, they are all amazingly quiet just enjoying all the big boys toys and we hope to make early converts.

 The content is Model boat clubs, a demo pool outside, steam train rides, engineering items, model traction engines.  There is a large Meccano exhibition and Ant of Robot Wars fame has put together a larger truck demonstration than at Alexandra Palace.

There are a few model railway layouts, and flying out on the playing field, including  commercial quadcopters.  We have our club shop and having recently cleared deceased members houses have more modelling and engineering stuff than usual.
Plus a few other things we await confirmation on.
Hope to see you there,
Regards to all,
Roy (Hon Sec)

Hi all, we are all geared up ready to go.  The weather forecast is very good dry, sunshine about 18 degrees.  There are train rides for all you little ones out there!!!!

 We have filled up the school again and overflowed outside onto the quadrangle.  Free parking, refreshments served by gorgeous ladies hand picked by our members. Well they married them so must be good.  We have 3 rooms of Meccano models, Tamiya trucks racing cars, RC boats and hopefully flying.

There is the club shop and I have a Wave Rider for sale full of RC just a bit old but connects to current RC.  We also have a couple of 50 inch long Naval pinnaces and a couple of Cheddar steam plants for sale.  The rest just arrives!
Look forward to seeing new people as well, you do'nt know what you are missing!
Best to all,
Roy

Hi all, we had a record attendance yesterday we reckon we sold 1000 tickets, the food did not run out but there was some late night shopping!  We had a lovely day and the quadrangle with the live steam exhibits is a suntrap. 
There is something for everybody, and we are open today as well, a certain person with a certain taste in Hawaiin shirts was also present,  nudge, nudge, wink, wink, no names etc!!!!!
Come and see us and make yourself known to me, I shall have a Hi Viz jacket and a smile.

Kind regards Roy

Hi all, I hope those attending had a good time, we sold loads of tickets, pre-school come in free.  Over the two days we had about 1000 children attend, which accounts for a lot of worn out members doing train rides and the have a go boats.
I bet the ice cream man outside (donation given) thought his dreams had all come true.  Saturday was sunny (for some!) a little cloudy on Sunday.
We aim to do it again next year on the last weekend in September dates to be confirmed by the school later in the year.
Regards Roy
