Hi Fellow Enthu'siasts
Well as I catch up the society news for you, we have held our AGM in February. Our Vice Chair who has been an elected officer for almost as long has he has been a member has stood down as he may be changing his postal address. For his services over the years the society made him a honorary member on the night. Troy Beddis put his name forward for the post and was accepted by the members present. For those that do not recognise the name the elected officers page has been updated with a photograph along with our elected auditor. As I've been away from the action for a while, the feed back I have on club activities seem to be positive and looking at the latest posting on you tube by our film crew show that many of the members are still enjoying themselves at the main lake and reports also say they are sailing on the silt ponds. The Change in collecting money for Sparkle by the club resulted in a doubling of money collected. Lastly our club fee's have been retained at £10.00 for seniors and free for juniors.
Just added new pictures on IMAGE GALLEY of presentation night awards.
A new video by Brian & Sue our camera crew has been added to our Video Page.
Next show in 2017
9th April 2017 Cardiff Marine Modellers OPEN DAY
At the Club meetings, several ideas have been floated for the funding of our nominated charity, as our Club Boats are requiring an update of radio gear and as the Sunday sail times in the summer have been changed due to council boats being on the silt ponds, the window of their useful use has been reduced to less than an hour. It was decided to keep the have a go boats for our OPEN DAY use only. A collection box has been made for the Sparkle donations for club nights with good result to date.
Wednesday sail times for club members has been reset to a 12.30 pm start
I hope the information you find on our web pages will be of use to you, as we are a Marine Modelling Club set up by its members for all of its members and members of the public to view our models at lakeside and to join in and enjoy our hobby activities. As the club is open to all sorts of Marine Craft (NO IC Engines allowed) we have usually on display on the park lake waters and silt ponds, Sunday Mornings and Wednesday afternoons, a variety of marine craft sailing on the surface and below it.
There is usually a lot of friendly banter being exchanged along with technical information at our informal meetings at lakeside.
The Open Day and Chairperson Competition that the club run this year allowing models to be entered irrespective of the amount of work each society member had put into the completion of their model. This allowed every member the chance to enter a model or two. The enfaces today in the society is not being on the member’s capability in the modelling making department as was in the past, but on the owners enjoyment of their own marine craft. Those that have no modelling experience have been helped along the way by other members with the required knowledge to help them. It’s nice today to see some of those modelling novices now handing on their knowledge they have picked up with their time with the club to the newer and some older club members.
We have a new list of club members that have managed to pick up the Society's Trophies, Updated pictures taken of our Chair comp. Open Day Comp. have been added to our picture gallery, old pictures removed.
