A bit of the big stuff with Big Al Breese's warship, HMS Ramilles.

It's been a bad day,
I put on a shirt and a button fell off,
I picked up my shopping bag and the handle fell off.
I'm afraid to go to the bathroom!,

If God had wanted us to go metric, wouldn't he have appointed ten apostles!.

This week at the lake was quite busy, the weather certainly brings people out doesn't it.






One of John Goddards more sedate models , nice little mover til it stopped in the middle of the lake, don't see that very often do you!


Soon got it going again and then realised he had his tranny in the boat with him!.


Then had his boat pull him back to the landing stage where I helped him out of the rescue boat, and he carried on sailing!.
No flies on him!.

Age doesn't always bring wisdom, sometimes it arrives alone.

A word to the wise isn't necessary, its the stupid ones who need the advice.

If you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it!.

Message from the new Commodore. 15.7.2017.


As many of you may know I have taken over as commodore after Alan stood down. I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his time and effort. I have been in several model boat clubs over the past 25 years and I have been on the committee of two of them. There is a lot of work that goes behind the scenes to keep the club running. Alan has done a tremendous job improving our facilities and keeping us sailing. As have the other committee members. Thank you again Alan. 
I'm finding my feet at the moment but  if you have any suggestions or ideas for the club please let me know.

Just a reminder to all that our annual regatta takes place on Sunday 23rd July from 11-00am.  I'm working on the day unfortunately but Hopefully the sun will shine for you.

Alan's coaster, which I remember won 1st prize in the Kit build section in 2006!, doesn't time fly when you are having fun!


Who does this remind you of?.

Hello,
I have created a club email address, mainly for use on literature to avoid using ones own personal address etc.
Please could you please add it to the contact us page of the club website. I amended it to the club's listing on the council website and a prospective member contacted us within the week so the system works !

The address is etherowmbc@gmail.com

Regards 
Paul The Comm.

A little boy goes up to his granddad and says, 'Can you make a sound like a frog granddad?'.
'Well I suppose I could try' replied granddad.
'Great' replied the boy 'because grandma said we can go to Disneyland when you croak!'.

Resignation!, 5th July 2017.

Had an email from Al the Comm yesterday here is the email.


As and from 4/7/17, I tendered my resignation as Commodore of Etherow Model Boat Club.
Alan Breese.

I know I'm supposed to be neutral in these posts, but I can't help thinking its a step backwards for the club after all Alan's done  during his Stewardship over the past few years.
 I hope you will join me in saying a big thank you for his efforts and work in making this one of the best Clubs in the country and admired by a lot of other clubs for our membership and facilities!.
Still a suppose he has realised that you can't please everyone and there are always others who think they can do better!.
Please forgive this post if you think it's not impartial, but its quite upsetting for me!.
............................................................................
Not in the mood for any jokes today!.
