2 x New events! - Shuttleworth
« on: December 08, 2023, 12:47:49 am »

I am in the early stages of organising 2 events in 2024, which will need Mayhems help.
Shuttleworth hold 2 rc aircraft events in 2024
May 18/19
July 27/28


Shuttleworth are keen to expand this to include all rc models,, and O am.organising the boat side. We have access to the lake for sailing, plus a static display area dedicated to boats.
At present, they have aircraft,  rc cars, and boats, and are looking at truck, tanks and possibly railways.
I'm looking for clubs or individuals to display and sail at the event, be it for 1 day or both days.
All boats welcome to display, and im hopefully going to get agreement to see if we can run ic boats (don't hold me to it yet though!)
 Any one wishing to display must bring their own table and gazebo etc!
This would be a free event for the public
There is camping available
More info will be posted in January/February.


If you wish to help out by attending, please message myself or leave a post on here

Hi Pete,


The events advised are run by ModelAIR and are major annual gatherings for the aero modelling community covering RC flying, free flight models, radio control assist and control line flying.  It is good they are being extended to include other modelling disciplines.  I have conducted a quick review with some of our regular sailors and there is support for this.  Accordingly, the Peterborough Area Model Boat Club members look forward to taking part in both events and will provide their own gazebo and tables etc.

Its down the B658 before the village of Old Warden, off of the A1 at Biggleswade.The museum is well signposted from the A1 and well worth a visit itself.

This is beginning to sound like a really good show.

I have been a frequent visitor to Old Warden over the years and it looks like I will be going again soon

Hi Guys, I run the Tamiya Truckin group. I would be available to put on a display for the July weekend? The only issue might be a space for us to setup up a full display. Open to chat about options.


Cheers, Ant

Ok, thanks to those clubs that are showing interest, especially as north Weald and Southern are now dust for this year!

I now need clubs to specify which date, if not both they can attend, and if possible, number of peeps, whether static, sailing or both!
I would like to extend an invitation to any other clubs or individuals who can attend.
The hope is we will have a static display area on the flightline and a live sailing display on the lake about 200m away
Dates are
2024
May 18/19

July 27/28
