Is the pond still supported by bales of straw or is it now dug into the ground ?.

The pond, although technically  temporary, is now built with railway sleepers with a good filter system. A lot bigger than the straw bale one and we can get a depth of about 24 inches. Much easier to launch boats than a pond dug into the ground.

The Ellesmere Port Model Boat Club will be organising a Model Show on the 18th and 19th May 2019. The venue is the Hooton Park Trust, an old RAF Airfield just off the M53 near Ellesmere Port. Invitations to traders and clubs will be going out very soon. Both EPMBC and Hooton Park have their own facebook pages with photos. The show will be in a hanger and there will be on site parking. Catering will be a mobile unit. There is a pool for sailing. There will be limited space for trucks and planes but it is essentially a model boat show.
Some people say our hobby is a dying hobby, I hope not, but it will be if these few shows we have left are not supported.

Sadly due to events the week before Kirklees M B C may not be able to display but I hope to visit along with others to support the show.

Less than a week to go before the show. Dont forget there will be a bring and buy stall so bring all your unwanted models and get them sold. Im sure there will be many bargains to be had.

Looking forward to photos - bit far to travel!


Always interested in seeing your builds and the ponds you have available.
