Thanks for posting the photos Martin. Some fine craftsmanship on display.
Ron Dean posted a Google link on RCG which enabled me to view them.

Hi All
 Report for the Model Boat Mayhem event at Wicksteed park Kettering U K
 
 What a wonderfull weekend, all that is best about our hobby, terrific atmosphere, lots of laughs and joke and a willingness to help each other when this get broke, go wrong, or get bogged down in the car park an spend lots of time talking and explaining to the public about or hobby.
 
 First of all as always, HUGE thank you to the Wicksteed Park Model Boat Club for patiently organising and arranging EVERYTHING and sacrificing their time  the water to make sure it all runs well. Martin for staring up Mayhem in the first place and still being the gaffer and keeping it all running.
 
 Probably Mayhems best weekend at Wicksteed ever! 17 years,  but estimates rage from 16 to 18 years...! )
 Some picture I like from the show
 A  link here to a lot more https://photos.app.goo.gl/wBAVJp4r4cH5TDV99
 Looking forward to next year

I decided to pay for my parking via the RingGo app when I got home but the location 24888 doesn’t come up. Anyone else had problems paying online for parking?

Hi Angus


We weren’t aware that they had changed their app, hopefully you can see the QR code and use that to pay for parking.

I went on the Saturday, my second year after a taking an hiatus from model boating. This was Mayhem at its best!
It was brilliant it felt like I had gone back in time, to when I used to go regularly.


The weather was weird though it usually rains most of the time, must be that dodgy climate change stuff.  %% %% %% %%


Thanks to all the organisers for keeping this brilliant event going, and a big thanks to Martin for thinking about and setting it in motion back in 2007.


It was great to chat with everyone!


Next years date is in my diary.

Thirty years ago, I was going to model shows with a boat (usually my Deans Motor Gun Boat) all over the south of England, including Beale Park, Greenwich Maritime Museum, Brighton  and many more - I then lived abroad for 16 years and lost touch with things over here. Moved back 12 years ago and once settled, looked for the shows but most had disappeared. This weekend was the first time I've been able to take a boat along and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere of being amongst fellow modellers.
Thank you to Martin & the Wicksteed club for bringing the magic back.
I've already made arrangements to be there for the whole weekend next year.

For a different view of the stands than usual, here’s a short video I took from the middle of the lake Saturday afternoon. Who can spot themselves?
